«Caroline Bruker als Papagena bringt mit ihrem lebhaften Sopran Leben auf die Bühne.»
Horst Dichanz | Opernnetz (2017)
«...so erfordert die Rolle der Miss Aurelia Havisham neben einer expressiven Sopranstimme auch hohe Darstellungskunst. Caroline Bruker hat beides zu bieten. Und das bei einer Musik, die auch ohne menschliche Stimme schon den Wahnsinn schildert: Atonal, chromatisch, dissonant.»
Ilse FRANZ-NEGERMANN | Lippische Landes-Zeitung (2017)
«Caroline Bruker singt entzückend und jagt als kindlichliebliche Freia mit dem Tretroller über die Bühne…»
