Critical acclaim for Nick's portrayal of Fernando for ETO.
A strong critical reception has followed Nick's interpretation of this demanding, high-lying role, with praise coming from The Telegraph, The Times, The Gurdian, The Independent, Opera magazine, The Express, Opera Brittania, bachtrack, The Stage, broadway world, planet hugill, arts desk, what's on stage and classical source.
“Best is Nicholas Sharratt, whose poised singing and acting put Paris's dilemmas rather than Priam's at the centre of the drama” Rupert Christiensen, The Daily Telegraph"Nicholas Sharratt is similarly strong as Count Almaviva, with a plangent tenor capable of negotiating even "Cessa di più resistere" with pleasing ease..." John Allison, The Sunday Telegraph “Cardenio’s brother Fernando was taken by Nicholas Sharratt who sang with a fluent tenorino, floating up to his high notes in a manner similar to Gregory Kunde in younger days or Stuart Burrows. With a softly produced acuto at the end of ‘Ah, dammi, o ciel pietoso’, this was an elegant performance that was very pleasurable to listen to.” Llŷr Carvana, Opera Britannia
