Die Zauberflöte, W.A. Mozart, Landesbühnen Sachsen, June 2016
"Tamino, der ihr be-stimmte Prinz, ist edelmütig und gut. Ma-nuel Günther macht ihn mit seinem schön klingenden, sicher gefiihrten Tenor zum Erlebnis"

Die Zauberflöte, W.A. Mozart, Landesbühnen Sachsen, June 2016
"Manuel Günther als Tamino eroberte sämmsiche und spielstark nicht nur ihr Herz wie im Sturm. Sein Vogelfänger-Gefährte bliet von Kazuhisa Kurumada recht abstrakt da hat Marie Hänsel als Papagena deutlich mehr zu bieten."
