Jukka Rasilainen

Tosca, Savonlinna Festspiele
“Terms of stage presence, however, bass-baritone Jukka Rasilainen can not be topped as the villain, Baron Scarpia, and he is also the focus of the by far strongest scene, which stage director Warner has come up with.“ Wiener Zeitung

Siegfried, Opernhaus Zürich
“With his vocal volume Jukka Rasilainen proves to be a top class Wanderer.” Neue Zürcher Zeitung

“From the vocal point of view, this night belongs to Jukka Rasilainen as Wotan, who handles this important part with his smooth baritone without any sign of fatigue.“ Berner Woche

Elektra, Opernhaus Zürich
“…Jukka Rasilainen gave Orest great power with his rich, elegant voice and insisting interpretation.“ Das Opernglas

Lohengrin, Edinburgh International Festival
“Telramund was wonderfully sung by the Finnish baritone Jukka Rasilainen, who proved to be a superb interpreter of the part vocally and dramatically. His voice is rich but at the same time has a wonderfully incisive and cutting quality, and has a huge amount of power, as he demonstrated when accusing Lohengrin in the later stages of Act Two with the entire orchestra playing at full strech behind him.“ The classical Source

“Jukka Rasilainen sung with a power and dignity that redeemed the role. His clear baritone and fine enunciation brought fire to the angry exchange with Ortrud at the start of Act II.” The Independent
