“As Grant Doyle sang out sonorously in the Forester’s closing paean to nature, the sun was setting outside over the Wormsley estate, art and nature in sync. Janáček would have approved.”
Richard Fairman, The Financial Times ****
“Grant Doyle's powerfully sung and subtly acted Forester.”
Guy Damman, The Guardian *****
“The human story of the villagers – perfectly exemplified… especially, Grant Doyle’s expertly sung and superbly acted Forester –
comes into sharp focus in the foreground.”
George Hall, The Stage ****
"Doyle has a particularly impressive musical presence, is seemingly unfazed by the wide tessitura, and gives as much emotion as the part requires, especially in the tricky final scene, which succeeds spectacularly..."
Gavin Dixon, Bachtrack ****
"Grant Doyle gives us an energetic Figaro, with plenty of physical comedy and a nice sense of Figaro’s ever-optimistic sense of opportunity. Rossini’s Figaro is a very different man to Mozart’s; master of the situation only when it suits and profits him, endlessly cynical about love. Doyle’s exasperation in the ladder scene towards the end of Act II was especially amusing, and altogether he was believable and assured."
Charlotte Valori, Backtrack, 11th July 2014
"Grant Doyle’s Figaro has no problem immediately attracting attention and money: people shower cash upon him, even before he bothers to unpack his razors and scissors. Doyle sings with great assurance, and a knowing sparkle in his eye. This Figaro is none too subtle about the way he carries out his wheeler-dealing."
Giles Woodforde, Oxford Times, 10th July 2014
"Grant Doyle sings with a pure, uncomplicated richness one could happily listen to all night"
The Stage May 2011
"Grant Doyle’s confident and musically intelligent Hector sings everyone else off stage."
King Priam/English Touring Opera, The Times, February 2014 (Hilary Finch)
"The Australian baritone Grant Doyle was perfect as the dastardly Don, combining a fine, powerful voice with a splendid swagger and confident and energetic movements around the stage that emphasised his irresistibility."
Don Giovanni/Garsington Opera,
Daily Express, June 13 2012
"The always likeable Grant Doyle blossoms with star quality as Robin Oakapple."
Daily Telegraph, February 2010
