"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
