I recently covered Figaro at Opera North and I went on to make my professional debut on 5th February - read all about it here in my blog for Opera North:
"Bradley Travis’s Figaro had a lightness of touch coupled with graceful, unaffected singing and acting...Travis’s Figaro, has star quality."
Paul Reed, Classical Source, June 2012
"Bradley Travis's Lord Ellington was a sharp bit of characterization, portrayed with plenty of comic instinct and an attractively forthright baritone."
Peter Reed, Opera Magazine, August 2013
“Travis offered an Ottone as handsome of voice as of uniformed figure; his conflict was credible, tormenting and, through expressive artistry very much became ours.”
Mark Berry, Seen and heard International, December 2012
"It was a particular pleasure to see Bradley Travis again as Don Iñigo Gomez - a most accomplished comedy performance with a John Cleese silly walk as well! This young man has a fine instinct for timing - a real talent."
Brian Dickie, December 2013

"Bradley Travis, the star of the show as the self-important, sports-mad Count Robinson. Travis was just as adept at managing badminton shuttlecocks mid-aria as he was at negotiating syllables in a patter song."
Claire Seymour, Opera Magazine, November 2013
"three of the singers are accomplished farceurs...Bradley Travis's improbably debonair Count"
Michael Church, The Independent, September 2013
"The men filled their roles to perfection...the finest comic performance of the evening, Bradley Travis's as a Woosterish Count Robinson, filling every moment with disciplined gesture"
David Nice, The Arts Desk, September 2013
"Bradley Travis' magnificent entrance steals all hearts, as does his wonderful singing."
Charlotte Valori, Bach Track, September 2013
"Travis was simply brilliant as the crazy Robinson, but with a heart of gold underneath...Travis clearly has a great gift for comedy."
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill, September 2013
