Reviews, articles: Verdi- Don Carlo, National Theatre Praha: "Jiří Brückler, despite being very young, showed us that he has one of the most beautiful Czech baritones; his voice has a nice colour and it will be interesting to keep our eyes peeled." (momus.hu April 24, 2013). "A young baritone with an excellently trained and nicely coloured voice uses all his dynamic scale from fine pianissimos to resonant fortes in the role of Rodrigo. As an actor, he distinguished between marquis’s warm friendship with infant Carlo from cautious diplomacy when negotiating with King Philip II. The highlight of his performance was the scene in the prison, where he bids farewell and dies." Thalia Awards Magazine, 2013).
