Nick Shadow, The Rake's Progress, Victorian Opera
Andrew Collis was a commanding Nick Shadow, cajoling Tom Rakewell by pandering to his every wish. His persuasively strong characterisation and intelligible pronunciation initially suggested a confident rather than sinister force.
Peter Burch, The Australian, 20 March 2012

The Trial of the Cannibal Dog, NZIFA, Opera House Wellington
Andrew Collis gave an effortless performance, eloquently depicting the flawed, heroic Cook.
National Business Review, 14 March 2008
