Scottish Opera - 'Falstaff' (Ford)
"Above all, this was an ensemble performance of the sort Verdi intended, where no voice stood out over another - yet with Maria Costanza Nocentini as Alice, Leah-Marian Jones as Meg Page, Lucy Crowe as Nannetta, William Dazeley as Ford and Sally Burgess as Mistress Quickly it was full of fine touches, bound together by Peter Robinson's vivacious, light-footed conducting."
The Herald, May 19 2008
"And a special word must be said for William Dazeley as Ford. In his scene of jealousy in Act II, he generated a moment of tragic drama, the only one in the opera, singing with a real beauty of tone and gravity of manner."
The Independent, May 16 2008
