Die Zauberflöte
THEATER OSNABRÜCK

“Caroline Bruker as Papagena delivers her lively soprano spirit onstage…”

HAMBURG KAMMEROPER

“Caroline Bruker sings delightfully and races as a childish-loving Freia with a scooter around the stage… ”

Hamburg Abendblatt

Miss Havisham’s Wedding Night
DETMOLD HOCHSCHULE FÜR MUSIK

“…the role of Miss Aurelia Havisham, in addition to an expressive soprano voice, also requires a tremendous performance. Caroline Bruker has both to offer.  And this with such difficult music, even without a human voice, describes the madness: atonal, chromatic, dissonant…”
