Praised for his compelling performance and expressivity, the American tenor brings “vast reserves of power” to Bizet’s tragic soldier (Bachtrack).

Bryan reflects on his growth from a young singer in New Orleans to the “reigning American tenor du jour in the French repertory” in an article published in The Independent (Washington Post).

Bryan continues performances of Carmen at the Royal Opera House through November 10.
