Bruce Graham


was born in Scotland and educated at the University of Edinburgh. In 1978 he joined the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company with whom he played many of the Gilbert and Sullivan character roles. Since his spell with the D'Oyly Carte, Bruce has been proud to have played the central role of Old Deuteronomy in Cats both on the national tour and in the West End of London.

Although other aspects of Bruce's work have ranged from film and television to Old Time Music Hall and pantomime he is proud, during the last few years, to have appeared all over the world as a principal with the Carl Rosa Opera Company, thereby returning to his first love, operetta and the works of Gilbert and Sullivan.

reviews include:

... [Bruce] Graham, in particular, being the finest singing actor I have heard or seen in the role.

Irish Times

Seasoned pro Bruce Graham ... a master of Gilbertian delivery.

Rupert Christiansen, Daily Telegraph

Bruce Graham is a fine Sergeant of Police...

David Fallows, The Guardian

Especially good was Bruce Graham's preposterous Alderman...

The Observer

Bruce Graham is simply magical...

Belfast Telegraph

It is Bruce Graham in the part of Don Alhambra who steals the show.  His introductory solo No Possible Doubt Whatever is sung with impeccable enunciation and throughout his performance is a joy.

... but the star performance among the men seemed to be Bruce Graham's Grand Inquisitor, by turns both amusing and chilling.
