Joelle Harvey press reviews
Glimmerglass Opera - Tolomeo
"As the ingenuous Seleuce, Harvey displayed a silvery soprano that caressed the florid lines with delicacy and fine-grained dynamic gradations. Her duets with Costanzo were sublime"
Joanne Sydney Lessner, Opera News
"Seleuce, a poised and moving Joélle Harvey, bade the breezes convey her desires by singing into electric fans."
Steve Smith, New York Times
"Former Young Artists Anthony Roth Costanzo and Joélle Harvey — last year’s stellar Sorceress and Belinda in Dido and Aeneas — returned in triumph to the strikingly demanding Senesino and Cuzzoni roles. Both acted and sang up a storm...Harvey dazzled physically and vocally as his beloved Seleuce."
David Shengold, Boston Music Intelligencer
"Joélle Harvey, as his love Seleuce, produces a light, creamy soprano voice that transports the audience, especially in her duets with Costanzo."
Brenda Tremblay, Rochester City Newspaper
"This opera, typically Handel in its plot of lovers trying to reunite, sports three sensational performances – Canadian mezzo-soprano Julie Boulianne as Elisa, American countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo as Tolomeo and American soprano Joélle Harvey as Seleuce. These three sail through their parade of da capo arias in brilliant fashion."
Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail
