“Satriya Krisna did a superb job of tracing Don José’s descent, his robust tenor always imploring” - The Times UK 

“.....Don Jose, sumptuously sung by young Indonesian tenor Satriya Krisna”

 “The Lieutenant Pinkerton Satriya Krisna was the Indonesian tenor who also studied at the National Opera Studio, whose soft forceful tenor voice was amplified throughout The Great Conservatory of Opera Syon Park”

“In light of his obvious fragility, perfectly captured in Satriya Krisna’s performance, the apparent ease with which Don José is driven to madness doesn’t seem quite so hard to accept.”
