Così fan tutte, Opera North

“Under Justin Doyle’s mercurial baton, this Così passed all too quickly. An evening of almost unadulterated Mozartian bliss.”



L’infedeltà delusa, English Touring Opera

“ETO’s second offering – Haydn’s L’infedeltà delusa, here translated as ‘Country Matters’ – was a knockout. … Deftly supported by Justin Doyle in the pit … hard to imagine this fizzing piece ever being better done.”

The Independent 


Albert Herring, Opera North

“Justin Doyle’s conducting is lithe and colourful.”

The Guardian 


“The conductor, Justin Doyle, and the Opera North Orchestra work wonders to dispatch Britten’s mischievous and miraculous chamber score with pungency and precision.”

The Times 


“Justin Doyle’s sharp conducting is alert to every glint and kink in Britten’s score.”

Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Eastern Opera

“That it was a brilliant and satisfying experience was due, first of all, to Justin Doyle who, to judge by his stylish, well-paced conducting, is already an accomplished Mozartian.”



Hallé Orchestra

“Opening nights do not come any more pleasurable than the Opera Gala that launched this year’s Northern Aldborough Festival … a young conductor who should be snapped up by a major opera company.”
