Ariadne Auf Naxos – Santa Fe Opera

“Sledge’s voice displayed the spinto weight to be a creditable Bacchus, one of the shortest of the German heldentenor roles.”


 –  William Burnett

Opera Warhorses, July 2018

“Bruce Sledge (Percy in the recent COC Anna Bolena) with his fearless high register was terrific as Bacchus—a role that has caused so many tenors to crash and burn!”


–  Joseph So, August 2018

Anna Bolena – Canadian Opera Company

“Bruce Sledge as Riccardo Percy was the only one among the principals who sounded a natural in this musical idiom. His radiant, voluminous tenor and ease with language brought us the only spot-on Donizettian singing in the show…”


Opera Canada Editor, April 2018

“Sledge’s splendid voice give us a very good performance.”

Rigoletto – Boston Lyric Opera

“As the Duke of Mantua, his [Bruce Sledge’s] voice came off strong and nimble with a dexterous feel for Verdi’s style. He delivered the famous “La donna è mobile” with crispness, and his sweet, cooing arias to the various women in the story gave the diabolical character a charming veneer.”

"Tenor Bruce Sledge sang the role of the Duke with fluidity and ardor…”

Maometto Secondo – Santa Fe Opera

“Erisso, the leader of the Venetians in Negroponte (here the clarion-voiced, impressive tenor Bruce Sledge) …”


Anthony Tommasini

The New York Times, July 2012

“What tenor shortage? As in the company’s other productions this year Santa Fe Opera served up yet another terrific high-voiced singer. Bruce Sledge sang Erisso with vibrancy, a rich Italianate timbre, and thrilling top notes.”
