"...and the phenomenal baritone Anton Eriksson in the role as Marcello." Martin Nyström
Lucia di Lammermoor - Opera på Skäret
Kulturkompasset

"The promising Swedish baritone Anton Eriksson is surely a singer in great development and Sweden really has a promising baritone here for future dramatic parts. As Enrico his dark, sonorous bass-baritone had the right authority and strength to back up his acting skills which portrayed an angry, deceitful bully of a man who tries to seize all people around him."

"Anton Eriksson, whom I saw last summer as really nasty Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor at Skäret, here made his marks in the small but important role as the Mandarin. Antons baritone has gained further in volume and substance." Göran Forsling

"Anton Eriksson has a fine baritone and has an appropriately rough image for the role as Enrico." Thomas Anderberg
