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.”
– Ken Herman, San Diego Story

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.
– Maria Nockin, Opera Today

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.
