Lohengrin, Stadttheater Osnabrück
"With a strong voice and performance: Andrea Baker. [...] Actually, this Ortrud: the US-American Andrea Baker is the surprise of the evening. With such a crystal-clear pronounced german, that the surtitles at the sides wouldn't have been necessary at all, and with such a powerful Wagner-voice, she is convincing especially in the 2nd act. And this not only with her great singing skills, but also with her great acting performance. It's impressive how she performs the intriguer Ortrud totally controlled - and makes even a slight lift of the eyebrow to a strong gesture." Osnabrücker Nachrichten

Salome, London Symphony Orchestra

“Andrea Baker was a forceful Herodias” The Times Online

“The real treat, though, was a sensational Herodias from American mezzo Andrea Baker” The Daily Telegraph

Jenufa, Landestheater Detmold
"Especially Andrea Baker as Kostelnicka with the infanticide on her conscience. Up into the last fiber of herself she is going through this role, is convinced to do the right thing, only regret it later deeply and in a credibly way. An enthralling, touching, emotional role portrait which Baker draws both with sensitivity and great power. For this she got gale-force, rushing applause." NMZ online

Carmen, Opera Australia
“Andrea Baker sings the title role with full-bodied, bony strength and a gritty, visceral lower register, which, even in the Habanera sung like so many softly twirling scarves, showed itself quite capable of getting down in the dirt and fending for itself. Such gutsy low notes are among Carmen’s dramatic moments, as though she realizes that high coloratura is just so much socially constructed frippery. Yet Baker was also capable of reflective softness.” Sydney Morning Herald

“Carmen features an African American Mezzo Soprano in the title role, Andrea Baker. She has a rich powerful voice with a powerful chest register, and is the sort of fearless actor who will throw herself about, on the floor, or virtually wherever the director suggests.” Opera-Opera

“Andrea Baker perfectly inhabits the role of Carmen” Sydney Morning Herald

Bird Of Night, Linbury Studio Theatre London
“Andrea Baker shone as her godmother, Nen-Nen.” The Observer

“Andrea Baker is both characterful and appealing as Nen-Nen.” Classical Source
