Albert Herring - Bradley Smith as Albert. Credit Robert Workman“… Bradley Smith sheer perfection as Albert Herring … “ Mark Ronan

“Bradley Smith’s interpretation is a masterly vocal and acted portrayal.”  Seen & Heard International

“At its heart is Bradley Smith — warmly believable as the timid Albert … he gilds a character comedy with some really excellent singing, giving Britten’s satire the weight of something real and human.” The Spectator

“Smith’s clear, conversational tenor projected an integrity that made his confusion touching and his final transformation wholly life affirming.” The Arts Desk
