"Lawrence Zazzo sings the title role with such beauty,
all the while acting like an Oscar winner, that he
deserves to be known as the king of countertenors."
Financial Times

"If Andreas Scholl is the Rolls-Royce of countertenors, then Zazzo is the Maserati. Not that he races through everything he sings — though he can certainly accelerate when given the chance, and do some fancy turns. But he’s an open-top virtuoso of a singer with, as we used to say, a tiger in his tank. Match him with some of the earliest opera written by the teenage Mozart and you’re witnessing two miracles in one."
The Times of London

"A countertenor of gorgeous tone, superb control
throughout the range, excellent musicianship and
handsome bearing"
New York Times

"Lawrence Zazzo came, sang and conquered"
