“Canadian tenor Josh Lovell was cast as Don Ottavio, often played as an effete and ineffectual individual; here, in his rich velvet doublet and hose and carrying a sword, he came over as a strong and determined character. Lovell has a luminous lyric tenor voice with perfect enunciation and phrasing: ‘Dalla sua pace’ was one of the highlights of the evening.”
