Don Giovani, The San Diego Opera
Mozart gave all the memorable tunes to Zerlina, and Fons’ fresh, shimmering mezzo made the most of Moazart’s bounty, especially her aria used to comfort Masetto “Vedrai, Carino.”

Fons…seems to be at the onset of a most impressive career. Her singing was an iridescent wave of vocal color as she captured her character’s delicious moments of indecision.

Emily Fons made a winning company debut, not silly or nymphomaniacal, somehow just right, supporting her character with vocal intelligence. Her conciliatory “Batti, Batti” was a highlight.
