Lee Bradley studied at London’s Royal Academy of Music (as a PMF scholar) under the tuition of Joy Mammen (her other pupils include Lesley Garrett, Emma Bell and was herself a leading lady on many occasions with Pavarotti).
Lee started singing at the age of fifteen. Soon after he undertook professional studies in opera. He made his debut at the Winter Gardens Opera House before a sell out audience, where he performed excerpts from Rigoletto and Turandot to an unprecedented standing ovation.
Since then his powerful “heroic” tenor voice has taken him all over the world from recitals in Italy and Russia to concerts in the USA and Africa, to being the principal soloist in The Last Night of The Proms in the UK. Many of his concerts have been with some of the most famous philharmonic orchestras including the English National Philharmonic Orchestra, of which he is the principal soloist.
Amongst his many engagements include: The 50,000 seat RAI Stadium (Amsterdam), London’s West End Theatres, Manchester United FC Stadium, a standing ovation performance to over 30,000 people, as well as a private audience with the British Prime Minister.
Lee Bradley has had the enormous privilege of receiving private advice and guidance from legendary tenor Placido Domingo at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. In addition to this he has received coaching from other superstars in the world of opera, including international leading tenor Jòse Cura, who described his voice as “phenomenal”!
Away from the opera stage, Lee has gained great acclaim playing the legendary tenor Mario Lanza in the touring production “Singing to the Gods”. He is also a regular act onboard many major cruise lines such as P&O Cruises.
Critics and audiences alike have taken to his warmth and humour on and off stage and even the most discernible of critics have described his voice as “just stunning”!
He has received rave reviews in both Opera Magazine and Opera Now, following his leading role in La Bohème and his admirers range from legendary opera singers to BAFTA winners and TV personalities including Des O'Connor, who, following Lee’s TV appearance on his show, remarked how bright the future looks for this young tenor.
