Imposingly handsome and thoroughly intimidating, Bradley Garvin’s singing as Scarpia was of the highest order, effortless and commanding. (Boston Herald)
Garvin’s Dutchman was at once noble, and he delivered a splendid account of the great monologue, ….very intelligently inflected. His timbre is intrinsically masculine and beautiful. (Opera News)
Of the many superb performers, the outstanding singing actor was bass-baritone Bradley Garvin, whose Four Villains matched such memorable artists as Norman Treigle and Gabriel Bacquier. Garvin is a magnificent talent! (Newhouse News Service)
Bradley Garvin was a magnetic Animal Tamer and Acrobat. (The New York Times)
