"But what pleasure the show has given over the decades, and what a marvellous frame it has provided for a succession of memorable tenors in the title-role from Placido Domingo to Alfredo Kraus and Rolando Villazon. To that line the name of Vittorio Grigòlo can now be added. He acts with terrific fervour as both the drunken wreck of the exordia and the ingenuous patsy of the central episodes, making the conflicted character deeply sympathetic ( ) he tossed off the Kleinzach ballad with witty élan and rose expansively to the ardour of Oh dieu, de quelle ivresse and the duet with Antonia (...) his is a rare vocal talent matched to a star personality."
