"His strong, robust voice was just what was needed..."

Quatre Chansons de Don Quichotte Le Nozze di Figaro
"Wolf Trap Opera Company hit one of its highest peeks of the past decade with a bracing production of the Rake's Progress that featured an appealing cast, well up to the challenges of Stravinsky's prismatic score, and incisive, tightly meshed direction an design. Through it all, the heart beneath the opera's satire beat distinctly.
Craig Colclough looking quite the London banker in his bowler hat, oozed charm and smarm as Shadow. The warmth and sturdiness of his voice paid dramatic dividends throughout." -Opera News 2012
"Craig Colclough charges into the role of Shadow. He nimbly reveals the character's combination of charm and smarm, all the while producing a big, robust tone and animating his every phrase" -Baltimore Sun 2012
"Mr. Colclough's Nick gave us a superb 'Come, master...'
and his voice was so warm and impressive you just wanted to join him. Nicks 'Tis not your money, but your soul' utterance made me want to hear Mr. Colclough perform Sweeney Todd soon! There was an edginess to this scene and his singing." -Opera L 2012
"Opening with an explosive account of “Fate” from the musical “Kismet” Colclough displayed an easy, down-to-earth confidence in his singing, and there’s an agreeable roughness to his voice that brought a fine edge to the song and turned Irving Fine’s hilarious “Tigeroo” into a tour de force" -The Washington Post 2012
