'Candide' Review, Calgary Opera Calgary Sun, 2014- LOUIS HOBSON

"What is worth the three hours are the performances. Alone or in their duets, Bruce and (Tracy) Dahl are electric and when they hit their high notes it's the equivalent of fireworks.

If that isn't enough, they both have excellent comic timing that's broad enough to hit the

back rows on either side of the tent."  

'Candide' Review, Calgary Opera, Calgary Herald,  2014- KENNETH DELONG

"Matthew Bruce ... is ... strong in the role, his singing expressive and attractive, and his acting convincing as the always positive, always naive Candide. That he is able to step up to such a role so quickly suggests a talent with room to grow."


'Candide' Review, Opera Nuova, Edmonton Journal,  Edmonton, 2014 - MARK MORRIS

" Matthew Bruce as Candide carried off the slightly hapless central role, looking rather as if Britten's Albert Herring had wandered onto the Broadway stage, and he was ably supported by the rest of the cast. "
