L’enfant in Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges with Mo. Ozawa and the Berliner Philharmoniker

The second half of the program was a live concert performance of Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, featuring a who’s who of young opera talent. Toronto audiences may remember mezzo soprano Emily Fons from her memorable turn as Cherubino in the Claus Guth-directed version of Le nozze di Figaro produced by the Canadian Opera Company in early 2016. Performing as the petulant “l’enfant” of the title, Fons used a compulsively watchable mix of theatrical gesture and vocal pyrotechnics to embody her character.
