'...young Joseph Doody makes a strong impression as the Queen's secretary. '

David Mellor, Daily Mail

'Rather more interesting was Joseph Doody’s William, secretary to the Queen, who flitted around the stage looking like he wanted personally to decapitate anyone that crossed Elizabeth.'

Dominic Lowe, bachtrack

'Joseph Doody – as the courtier Guglielmo – has lovely control'

Michael Church, The Independent

'[As Almaviva in Paisiello's Barbiere] Doody secured a consistently lyrical, soft-grained tone, winning sympathy for a character whose sincerity and charm in this opera is a considerable way off from the philandering Count of The Marriage of Figaro'

Curtis Rogers, Seen and Heard International

'Sofia Troncoso and... Joseph Doody [appeared] in numbers from La Sonnambula  and Don Pasquale, which they played like two young people in love rather than opera singers going through their usual motions.'

Yehuda Shapiro, Opera magazine, May 2017

'Doody demonstrated an impressive technique and great top in his Comte Ory showpiece '

Ruth Hansford, planethugill.com

'All the singers are virtuosos with young, fresh voices... If I had to single anyone out it would be Joseph Doody as Count Almaviva, who has a voice like silk (even when crawling between rows of the audience or throwing beer cans down the aisle).'

Peter Roscoe, Shropshire Music Trust

 

 

'Flora McIntosh as Rosina and Joseph Doody as Almaviva stood out with their faultless harmonisation and onstage chemistry.'

Helena Gumley-Mason, The State of the Arts

 

 

'The entire cast sang with passion and commitment. Stand out performances, for me, were by Turiya Haudenhuyse in the title role, and tenor Joseph Doody, who played Pylades.'

Frances Wilson, crosseyedpianist.com
