"Daniel Joy as The Duke gave us some lovely Italianate moments. A proper tenor is such a pleasure to hear. Jonas Kaufmann may have the notes but a baritone with a top does not have the brilliace and fragility of a tenor. Daniel Joy had all I was looking for." (Opera Talent) [http://www.operatalent.com/Safe/Reviews/Rigoletto%20review66003055.asp?Reviewa=99] (2014)
"Daniel Joy made his Duke of Mantua a convincingly red-blooded sensualist ... leaving us in no doubt whatsoever of his intentions through the thrilling physicality of his performance. Verdi spoils the Duke rotten with gorgeous tenor arias, and Joy gives us every hit number with deft exuberance, powerfully characterised." Bachtrack (Charlotte Valori) [http://bachtrack.com/de/review-rigoletto-opera-loki-september-2014] (2014)
"Daniel Joy bore the lion's share of the vocals as the Evangelist, bringing considerable expressive power to what can be a mechanical part." (Hastings Online Times) [http://hastingsonlinetimes.co.uk/arts-culture/music-sound/st-john-passion-2] (2013)
"Daniel Joy's Evangelist brought a welcome clarity in his diction and an emotional involvement which carried the narrative forward." (Lark Review) [http://www.larkreviews.co.uk/?cat=4] (2013)
"Daniel Joy was a chirpy, note-perfect Alfred, and his ensembles...were a highlight" (Opera Magazine (Roderic Dunnett) [ (2012)
"Daniel Joy's Alfred added humour with his Italian 'tit bits' in his overtures to Rosalinde showing off his charming tenor voice." (Music & Vision (Pippa Hare) [ http://www.kentishopera.com/prod/fleder12/fleder12.htm] (2012)
