Joshua Ellicott press reviews
Classical Opera Company - King's Place - Haydn Week
"Joshua Ellicott impressed with his confident, easy tone and engaging manner – heroically gallant as the fisherman Burlotto from “Le pescratici” who, having amorously presented the object of his love with a live mullet as a token of his esteem, launches into a display of vocal virtuosity which mirrors the nautical storms through which he vows he will go valiantly fishing for the sake of his love."
Graham Rogers, Classical Source, March 2009
"Ellicott...has nailed the controlled, yet emotive, style that this 18th century repertoire requires. Ellicott's second appearance was impressive in the aria 'Wenn am weiten Firmamente', from the puppet opera Philemon und Baucis. His...tone carried the plaintive directness of this music much more successfully, weaving in and out of an elegant oboe obbligato."
Gavin Dixon, MusicWeb, March 12, 2009

"Tenor Joshua Ellicott showed an equally deft and very endearing touch for comedy, displayed to perfection by both men in 'Duetto de la Chartreuse vert' by Chabrier."

"Joshua Ellicott’s tenor, secure and characterful, is a delight in Pedrillo’s solos – would that there were more than two."
Geoff Brown, The Times, March 21, 2007
