Critical acclaim for ‘La finta giardiniera’ at Glyndebourne

Joel Prieto received enthusiastic notices for his portrayal of Belfiore in Glyndebourne’s first-ever production of Mozart’s La finta giardiniera:

“Glyndebourne has cast from strength . . . the star is Joel Prieto‘s languid Belfiore . . .”
Melanie Eskenazi – musicomh.com

” . . . and Joel Prieto is a mellifluous Belfiore.”
Hugo Shirley – The Spectator

“Christiane Karg’s . . . portrayal of the wronged Sandrina is sharply complemented by Joel Prieto’s properly effete and drippy Belfiore.”
Rupert Christiansen – The Telegraph

” . . . Joel Prieto is (a) tender Count Belfiore . . .”
Richard Fairman – ft.com

“Christiane Karg as Sandrina (the fake gardener of the title) and Joel Prieto are touching in their reconciliatory love.”
Barry Millington – London Evening Standard
