"A STRAPPING ANTHONY"

"A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH"

Cendrillon  || WOLF TRAP OPERA​ 2021

"Baritone Jonathan Bryan played the role of the father, a somewhat bumbling noveau riche fellow, addicted to the bottle (no mother in this version).  His booming, resonant baritone is a force to be reckoned with, and enjoyed as often as possible."

OperaGene

"Jonathan Bryan...stood out as well-trained in dynamic with rich and balanced tones."

Jamie McCrary | Washington Classical Review

"CONFIDENT EDGE"

Frida  || THE ATLANTA OPERA​ 2019

"Returning in his second year as an Atlanta Opera Studio Artist, Jonathan Bryan continues to impress, following up his success in Dead Man Walking and La traviata in Frida as Christina's father and as Mr. Rockefeller.  His voice is substantial in size, deeply resonant and clear, while his acting continues to show a determined and confident edge that will surely blossom into a healthy career."

"SUBSTANTIAL BURNISHED BARITONE"

La traviata  || FRANCESCA ZAMBELLO PRODUCTION 2019

"Jonathan Bryan's substantial, burnished baritone made much of Baron Douphol's brief appearances."

James Sohre | Opera Today

"Violetta returns to Paris in the company of Baron Douphol, Jonathan Bryan, officious and commanding..."

Patrich White | Nippertown

 

"SPLENDID"

The Ghosts of Versailles  || GLIMMERGLASS FESTIVAL || VERSAILLES SPECTACLES 2019

"Jonathan Bryan was a splendid Beaumarchais, noble in manner, his baritone warm and firm  throughout its range."

Fred Cohn | Opera News

"Jonathan Bryan was a potent partner as Beaumarchais.  His handsome, lanky physique cut an elegant figure and his singing matched the look with smooth, arching phrases, good punch and presence, and buzzy high notes.  Mr. Bryan's substantial sound had no problem filling the house, and he could also scale back his delivery to engaging pensive effects."

James Sohre | Opera Today

"Especially good [was] baritone Jonathan Bryan as Beaumarchais, with a smooth and sure portrayal of the hopelessly in love playwright..."

Richard Sasanow | Broadway World

"Leading the strong cast is Jonathan Bryan...He plays Beaumarchais with handsome nobility and a beautifully resonant baritone."

Joseph Dalton | Times-Union

"Jonathan Bryan sings the role of Beaumarchais...and brings splendid voice and a compelling sense of gravitas to the part."

B. A. Nilsson | Words and Music

"The mellifluous-sounding baritone Jonathan Bryan was suavely persuasive as Beaumarchais."

Susan Brodie | Classical Voice America

"EXCELLENT"

Silent Night  || THE GLIMMERGLASS FESTIVAL​ 2018

"Of the Scots, baritone Jonathan Bryan was an excellent Lieutenant Gordon..."

Richard Sasanow | Broadway World

"The three commanding officers...were well cast; each brought vulnerability and growing understanding to their roles as leaders and as human beings."
