The Marriage of Figaro: Opera Theatre Company 2007

'Martha Bredin's portrayal of Cherubino was deliciously cheeky, providing many comic and slapstick moments.'
Cultural Northern Ireland 20/08/2007

'There was an impressive performance too from emerging mezzo Martha Bredin as Cherubino. Bredin, who is part of OTC's nurturing programme for young opera singers, has a deft comic touch that will serve her well.'
The Sunday Business Post 26/08/2007

The Marriage of Figaro: Opera Theatre Company 2010

'Martha Bredin's baleful stares, a lap-dog devotion to the Countess, physical awkwardness, and buffoon like presence evokes a teenage Boris Johnson - which was just perfect for this production.'
Irish Theatre Magazine 08/05/2010

'Martha Bredin was a wonderfully boyish Cherubino.'
The Irish Times 12/05/2010

The Yellow Sofa : Glyndebourne Festival 2009

'Martha Bredin as Amarela, the human characterization of the sofa- a vision of ruched silk and yellow tassels- gave a wonderfully arch performance, her mezzo rich and plangent in tone.'
Opera Magazine November 2009

'Martha Bredin's dress matches the silk upholstery. Bredin sings what the sofa sees and what Godofredo feels, and she bags many of Philips' meatiest tunes. Her mezzo vibrato fills the Fado with emotion, ranging from contempt to pity as the story unfolds.'
Opera Now Magazine Nov/Dec 2009

'Someone had the bright idea of giving the sofa a singing role, and Martha Bredin makes the most of it, particularly of some pseudo-fado songs that Philips concocts to impart an atmosphere of melancholy sensuality.'
London Evening Standard 21/08/2009

'Having the yellow sofa personified by a buxom redhead (Martha Bredin) with a touch of the wanton harlot about her, worked wonderfully to betray Godofredo's increasing torment and to evoke the powerful sexual charge of the yellow sofa- the furniture on which the act was performed has become the act itself.'
Mahogany Opera 21/08/2009
