Joanna played the role of Bertrande de Rols, the central figure in this story of Martin Guerre. Here are some comments from the reviews:

'Joanna Riding has the best moments and handles them beautifully'

'Congratulations should go to an extremeley talented cast whose singing and acting if often topnotch. Cammelle and Riding are a truly passionate pairing'

'It takes Joanna Riding to turn a penny dreadful into gold with a voice as sweet as a harp, she single-handedly unlocks the musical's emotional heart with 'How Many Tears'. It is an extraordinary performance of understatement and pain'

'Joanna Riding sings superbly and is often deeply affecting as the suffering Bertrande'
