.. Like a great lord and a bad man, Jean-François Lapointe dominates the distribution without a shadow of a pride, presents us with a brilliant, of grand one singing lesson in sophisticated seduction, to the velvet stamp, and shows himself alternately arrogant of an irresistible at once strong and fragile sex appeal, an overwhelming, almost too authoritarian scenic presence. A vulgaris man simply. Who would complain about it? (Christian Colombeau)

... Don Juan ? it is Jean-François Lapointe !
We know and appreciates for a long time the high qualities of this baritone, complete artist. He plays the text and the music with subtlety. His voice seems to take the shadowy color of the hero in the grave without losing the courage of brilliant cock of arrogant treble. It is the predator but who will be taken when he believed to take.... But he throwswithout defect, the feverish madness of a "air of the champagne " brillantissime, plays the velvet of the seducer, crop and treats harshly Elvire, Leporello, Masetto, with the harshness and the brutality of this " great lord villain " for Molière, here big wildcat proud, wild, which throws gallantly an extraordinary of challenge to the Commander.
