Joe Bolger was a fine prima donna, delivering the big bravura air with accuracy and brilliance.
The Sandman himself was countertenor Joseph Bolger, who has remarkable strength across his vocal range and excellent stage presence too.
Paul Kilby, BachTrack, 2012
In a strong cast, counter-tenor Joe Bolger as the Refugee and mezzo Dawn Burns as Minskwoman stood out for me as young singers to watch.
Cath Barton, Wales Arts Review, 2013
Singer Joe Bolger dressed ironically in Hendrix T-Shirt and jeans transported the audience church with aplomb, I was very impressed… his was an outstanding voice in a day of superb voices.
