«Christoph Engel donne une belle présence athlétique au personnage du muletier qui chante comme il déménage les horloges, avec vigueur et entrain.»
Opera Online (2018)
«Bienvenue, la retenue dont fait preuve Christoph Engel en Ramiro, sobre mais assuré, veillant à ce que sa diction rende le texte compréhensible.»
Forumopera.com (2018)
«Le vigoureux et naïf Ramiro du baryton Christoph Engel, en taureau, fait entendre une voix naturelle, aux allures gauches – sans aucune exagération – qui ne se retrouvent pourtant absolument pas dans le chant.»
