St Matthew Passion with the Royal Northern Sinfonia
Nicholas Merryweather's Jesus had great gravitas.
The Guardian, 20 April 2014
Nicholas Merryweather began as an angry Christ until the Gethsemane scene, when his pleading for release went straight to the heart

The Lighthouse - English Touring Opera
Merryweather was truly virtuosic in his falsetto-spiked ballad
Opera, December 2012
Merryweather balances a gorgeous legato with a daring range of vocal colours (all of which are demanded by the virtuosic writing).

Die Zauberflöte - Longborough Festival
I have left the best till last: Nicholas Merryweather's Papageno. Merryweather has a fine voice, as he demonstrated two years ago in the role of Don Giovanni at Longborough, but I had not expected him to have the clown-like qualities he showed at this performance. Most impressive of all was the way he engaged with the audience, who warmed to his many foibles.

The Italian Girl In London - Bampton Classical Opera
... a standout performance from Nicholas Merryweather as the Italian tourist Don Polidoro that is vocally outstanding with superb comic timing

Portugal’s Marriage of Figaro – Bampton Classical Opera
Nicholas Merryweather stood out: clear, firm and relaxed of tone, his diction was superb (no mean feat in this venue) and he exhibited a musical and dramatic confidence and ease which surely indicate great successes to come.
Opera Today, 11 October 2010
Nicholas Merryweather, playing his second Bampton Figaro (he appeared in Paisiello's Barber in 2005), displayed outstanding diction, projecting word and line without forcing, and his strong, flexible baritone conveyed the sharp ingenuity of this resourceful barber.
