"When Adam Sanchez sang the aria of Don José from the opera 'Carmen' by Georges Bizet, the presenter's promise that Don José would be 'fiery, young and be dynamic', the tenor fulfilled completely"
– Augsburger Allgemeine Zeitung
"…The same goes, above all, for Adam Sanchez, who sings the colossal role of Count Richard. Whether live, or on the CD recording, he sings as if he makes the stars fall from the heaven! For his mellifluous beauty of sound, his top notes, cultivation, charm and bronze ring, other opera houses should be envious of the Opera in Leipzig. His noble instrument..."
– Von Peter Korfmacher
