Le Nozze Di Figaro at Boston Lyric Opera

The standout of the cast was a Woody Guthrie-inspired Cherubino in jeans, cowboy hat, and carrying a guitar, performed outstandingly by Emily Fons. The classic pants role was convincingly acted. Her boyish tosses of the arm and a gawky posture simply made the audience forget they were looking at a woman until she opened her mouth and her liquid legato and gorgeous phrasing shone.
