'As the nasty Normanno, Kramer showed both baritone heft and tenorial ring, reminding me a bit of a Met stalwart of a bygone era, James McCracken-- Normanno in the mid 1950s, Otello a decade later. Who knows where Kramer's voice will take him?’
Opera Canada, Patrick Dillo, Vol. LIX, No. 2 for Normanno in Lucia di Lammermoor with Opera Philadelphia

'Don José is played by Adrian Kramer, whose rich and robust tenor voice fills the Balboa the best of all the singers. He moves around the stage involuntarily, as if he’s a puppet or in a trance after meeting Carmen.'
-San Diego Union-Tribune, 03/11/17, for Don José in La Tragédie de Carmen with San Diego Opera
'The memento she gave José, sung by tenor Adrian Kramer, was a red knitted stocking, not a flower. Nevertheless, he held it as he sang a beautifully lyrical "Flower Song....A fine actor as well as a singer, Adrian Kramer painted pictures with the colors in his voice. José, his possessive, psychotic character, was as essential to the story as Carmen herself.'
-Opera Today, 03/14/17, for Don José in La Tragédie de Carmen with San Diego Opera

'Top vocal honours went to Adrian Kramer... his sound is rich, ringing, and robust, this last no doubt a remnant of his baritonal past... he sang beautifully and his engaging stage persona shone through.'
-La Scena Musicale, 12/29/2014, for Nanki-Poo in The Mikado with Toronto Operetta Theatre
'Speaking of the artists: as Nanki-Poo, tenor Adrian Kramer sounded fantastic. He sang with his full voice, which was round and even from top to bottom... Adrian's voice filled out the leading role with command, and it mixed hilariously with his cartoon-like faces, slapstick comedy, and demeanour that was young and loveable.'
-Schmopera, 12/28/14, for Nanki-Poo in The Mikado with Toronto Operetta Theatre
