Morgen und Abend / Johannes – UA Royal Opera House Covent Garden London Libretto: Jon Fosse; Regie: Graham Vick; Dirigent: Michael Boder, November 2015

Christoph Pohl gibt als Johannes sein Covent Garden-Debüt. Jedes Wort ist zu verstehen. Die Einsamkeit, das naive Staunen, mit dem Johannes den unbegreiflichen Veränderungen begegnet, all das kann Pohl vermitteln. Leicht und heiter wird seine Linie, als Johannes die Erdenschwere aus den alterssteifen Gliedern rinnt.

Baritone Christoph Pohl is our guide for the evening –  a warmly humane Johannes, vocally characterful and carefully understated.

Alexandra Coghlan, Morgen und Abend is thoughtful and beautiful – but it does little for opera, in: NewStatesman, 16.11.2015

More successful were the sung roles, led by the baritone Christoph Pohl, whose Johannes combined impressively strong definition with a touching, rabbit-in-the-headlights sense of vulnerability as death closed in.

Den sterbenden, liebenswerten Fischer Johannes spielt – recht jugendlich noch erscheinend – der weiche Bariton Christoph Pohl.

There are no standout arias or opportunities for the singers to be vocally flashy, but the score is engaging and each soloist makes their presence felt with the richness and consistency of their sounds. Christoph Pohl as Johannes excels in particular

Christoph Pohl is outstanding as Johannes

Barry Millington, Morgen und Abend, opera review: Life, death and what lies in between, in: vening Standard, 16.11.2015

German baritone, Christoph Pohl making his ROH debut as Johannes, sang his heart out, utterly convincing as a simple man who loved his wife, valued his fellow fishermen and appreciated his daughter’s care and concern, all the while having no idea he was already dead. […] A combination of the excellent characterful singing, the endless variety of Haas’ soundworld and the soaring beauty of the vocal lines made the remaining fifty minutes of the opera a real gem

Miranda Jackson, Haas: Morgen und Abend, Royal Opera House, November 13th 2015, in: Opera Britannia, 15.11.2015

Christoph Pohl throws everything he has at Johannes

George Hall, Morgen Und Abend review at the Royal Opera House – ‘thought-provoking’, in: The Stage, 16.11.2015
