Fiona Maddocks - The Observer

“Wednesday’s Tristan was masterly. There had been cast changes. The result, no complaints, was a potent ensemble led by the British soprano Rachel Nicholls and the American tenor Bryan Register…As Tristan, Register held all in reserve for his merciless Act 3 challenge, fearlessly moulding the role to suit his own mix of lyricism, angst and stamina.”

“Bryan Register stattet den Siegmund mit kräftigem Heldentenor aus und wird der Partie auch als optischer Recke mehr als gerecht.

Bryan Register embodies Siegmund with a powerful Heldentenor and visually portrays more than enough the role as warrior.

“Die Besetzung, die in der Premiere zu hören war, bot ein wahres Fest der Stimmen. Bis in die Nebenrollen hinein war diese Produktion großartig besetzt allen voran Jane Dutton und Bryan Register als Tristan. Beide absolvierten in Kiel mit Bravour ihre Rollen-Debüts, vor allem Register zeigte im dritten Akt hinreißende Gesangskunst. Wie er sein Leiden zum Ausdruck brachte, war von einer kaum zu ertragenden Intensität – und das bei vorbildlicher Textverständlichkeit.”
