Reviews, articles:
"The way he coped with such a difficult role as a singer and actor is worth admiring." (Opera plus - Operní panorama Heleny Havlíkové 135).
"The cast of young soloist Jiří Přibyl, who has sung mostly bass roles, as Falstaff, the big bass-baritone role, was daring. However, he created the character of an aging bon vivant as a fat and boastful gasbag, who is not afraid to do bad things. His Falstaff is an incorrigible self-indulgent drunkard and distinctive philosopher, who does not take himself too seriously." (Thalia Awards magazine 2013).
