La Cenerentola, English Touring Opera 2023

'Joseph Doody as the Prince... was the production’s revelation. The tenor’s vocal sound was reminiscent of a young Juan Diego Flórez and the confident ping of his high notes was simply thrilling. Watch his career erupt.'

Mark Valencia, BachTrack

'Joseph Doody. a born tenore di grazia...  was the picture of romantic ardour, singing with shapely phrasing and stonking high notes.;

Hugh Canning, Opera Magazine

'Prince Ramiro is sung by Joseph Doody in a megawatt tenor with all the high notes'

Erica Jeal, The Guardian

 

'All those tricky little fast notes - pages and pages of semiquavers, meant to be delivered at preposterous speeds - come off confidently and with high definition... from Esme Bronwen Smith's... Cinderella, Joseph Doody's determined Ramiro (excellent top notes) and Edmund Danon's perky Dandini.'

 George Hall, The Stage

'...a wonderfully confident and fully rounded portrayal of Prince Ramiro.... It is a fine, vobrant instrument that did far more than negotiate Ramiro's roulades, made the Prince a pleasure to listen to. The result was to give Ramiro rather more backbone than usual, make him feel more in control of the action. I enjoyed every moment of Doody's performance, from the bravura fireworks to the more tender intimacy. I have to confess, I would love to hear him in Rossini's Barber of Seville in an uncut performance that gives us the Count's final showpiece'

Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill

'Joseph Doody’s sublime voice tackles the range of notes in superb fashion'

'Joseph Doody scaled the vocal heights confidently and with terrific agility.'

Il Re Pastore, Buxton International Festival 2023

'Joseph Doody's Alessandro is every inch the conventionally magnanimous ruler, while also showing an impetuous streak.'

Classical Music Daily

 

‘…the lovable Alessandro (Alexander) from Joseph Doody… keeps trying to do the best thing… and in a twinkle of an eye (or majestically sung aria) sets all right.’

Opera Scene

 

‘Joseph Doody was a virile Alexander with a melodious tenor voice that was ideally suited to the fine acoustic’

Plays to See

 

‘As for Joseph Doody… he portrays a vocally muscular Alessandro with well-honed intonation.’

anaclases.com (translated from French)

 

'Buxton assembles a cast that is up to the high vocal level required and in certain instances – notably mezzo Katie Coventry’s expressive Aminta and tenor Joseph Doody’s Alessandro – rises to serious achievement.'

The Stage

The Soldier's Legacy, Retrospect Opera recording

'Joseph Doody is an exciting find as Jack, possessing a highly personal light lyric tenor of great charm - he sounds a born Nemorino.'

Opera magazine

'Joseph Doody brings real dash as Jack Weatherall.'

Gramophone Magazine

At the Boar's Head, Leeds Opera Festival 2022

'The strongest stage presence was lyric tenor Joseph Doody as Prince Hal, always in great command physically, blending well with others. His voice has power and sweetness, and his diction is spot-on.'
