“Young American soloist Emily Fons was almost beyond praise in the title role. Her powerful mezzo allied with solid technique produced fireworks in almost every aria, with stunning virtuosic cadenzas. Pretty singing and affecting feeling in “Si, tornerò” contrasted with gripping force in “Sebben mi lusinga” with her voice moving up a gear in the da capo, an exceptional “Poiché pria di morire”, and ferocious low notes in “Voglio che sia l’indegno” contributing to a complete tour de force of singing and emoting. Clearly a singer to watch out for. ”
