Bruce Sledge

— Tenor

As Vladimir Vladimirescu in The Impresario and the Fisherman in Rossignol with Santa Fe Opera: “Bruce Sledge sang with appealing lyricism as Vlada’s henpecked husband, then performed to glorious poetic effect as the Fisherman.”
Simon Williams, Opera News, November 2014

As the Tenor Solo in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem at the Spoleto USA Festival: “Tenor Bruce Sledge has an especially versatile tenor voice that’s ideal for bel canto roles, but his solid spinto instincts, emotive style, and ringing top end made him a great match for this role.”
Lindsay Knoob, Charleston City Paper, June 7, 2013

As Paolo Erisso in Maometto Secondo at Santa Fe Opera: “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.”
Lawrence A. Johnson, Classical Review, August 3, 2012
