Koblenz Theatre - Der Rosenkavalier - SINGER
As a singer Juraj Hollı makes a great impression both vocally and visually.
Koblenz Theatre - My Fair Lady - FREDDY
And finally Juraj Hollı as Freddy, whose in love with Eliza. From his costume, one could get the impression, he walked right out of a Tim Burton movie. Vocally, the excellent opera tenor sounds like the young Karel Gott - a really great performance.
