“His voice is at its prime, unwavering throughout a nearly four-hour opera. His high notes have a ping that brightened an often poorly lighted stage. But there is now a richness throughout his range” LA Times

“He effortlessly held long, pingy high notes and sounded as fresh at the end of the opera as at the beginning. ” Bachtrack

“From his first reeling appearance as the drunken poet, to his final elevation into the Arcadian realm of the gods, Grigolo owned the role. He has a voice that can explode like a canon, ring like a bell and purr like a pussycat. He totally embodied the part, vocally, dramatically and visually”  LA Daily News

“His voice is very powerful, and replete with the full Italian armoury of sobs, portamento, look-at-me rubato and phrase teasing. He easily fulfils the role’s “young and handsome” brief, he brings a lithe finesse to the quieter music, and was impressively agile in ’La donna e mobile’ ” Full article

“Not only is Grigolo good at it: he does it in style and is probably the best I have heard…… I am wondering whether he isn’t actually our top artist.”
