His tremendous baritone roams a wide emotional frontier, from tenderness to ferocity with equal ease. Reaching down to a velvety, growling bass, he was capable of floating the long vowels at the top of his range before biting off the final consonants. Devouring the role, Konieczny is everything opera should be, certainly Wagner’s operatic vision of the Gesamptkunstwerk. On a stageful of dazzling singers, he is also—and perhaps foremost—an actor. Konieczny’s super power is his ability to inhabit and reveal his character from the inside out. Christina Waters/  OPERAWIRE

„The standout member of the cast was Tomasz Konieczny, a powerhouse bass, in a breakthrough Met debut as Alberich. I tend to prefer portrayals that bring out Alberich’s suffering and bitterness; with a big, penetrating voice that can slice through the orchestra, Mr. Konieczny made Alberich sneering and dangerous.” The New York Times, by Anthony TommasiniMarch 10, 2019

„Tomasz Konieczny’s sensational Alberich is gorgeously sung yet full of menace.” Financial Times, George Loomis,  

“Tomasz Konieczny was excellent, bringing stentorian power and unusual dignity to this prophet, who pays with his life for resisting Salome’s twisted sexual needs and usually comes off as a pompous fanatic…” THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 2, 2014

“In a powerful portrayal, Tomasz Konieczny deploys his rich and expressive baritone to suggest not just Wozzeck’s misery but also his unrealised potential.” FINANCIAL TIMES, Nov. 3. 2015

“Bass-baritone Tomasz Konieczny is so vocally majestic as Jupiter that Danae’s choice of Midas (tenor Gerhard Siegel) seems implausible.” FINANCIAL TIMES, August 8. 2016
