Götterdämmerung, Nationaltheater Mannheim

"Sebastian Pilgrim besitzt als Hagen dämonische Größe, was sich nicht nur beim Abwärtssprung der Oberstimme in Terz und Septime zeigt. Seine Stimme beeindruckt mit rabenschwarzer Fülle und zubeissender Tatkraft. […][Er] kann mit mächtigen über die Oktavweite springenden Bassschritten als Hagen auch deutlich machen, wie sehr Siegfried in seinem Bann steht. Das wirkt sich außerdem präzis auf das Bühnengeschehen aus." Der Neue Merker

"27 year old Sebastian Pilgrim, threw himself into with expressive gestures in this Daland and offered in the second round, thanks to his gestures and facial expressions, a very convincing portrayal of Hagen and thrilled the audience with it. He was awarded the Wolfgang Wagner price and I am excited about the expected career of this very gifted young man.” blog

Lulu, Theater Erfurt
“[…] Sebastian Pilgrim in the role of Der Athlet swings a dialect-laden juicy bass whip. […] Also the rest of the cast measured up with the extraordinary demands of this twelve-tone com-position, including with powerful voice Sebastian Pilgrim as Der Athlet.” Thüringer Allgemeine

“Pilgrims bass not only developed a capacity that is able to fill any large opera house effortlessly. His voice also has tremendous flexibility, with which he can trace different musical moods very well. That showed up in especially well in the songs of Carl Loewe (1796-1869).” Lippische Landeszeitung

Elias, Theater Erfurt
“Decisive part in the success of the performance of ‘Elias’ had the interpreter of the title role, baritone Sebastian Pilgrim. With phrasing and expression he gave the Prophet distinct contours and a distinctive profile in all its different facets. The singer designed both the ‘Eifer für den Herrn’, whose word is ‘like a hammer’, and the utter despair in the aria ‘It is enough’ with equally dramatic hardness and lyrical intimacy.” Neue Westfälische

Der Trank der Unsterblichkeit, Theater Erfurt
