“Emily Fons is excellent as Faramondo – clearly a young man staking out his own territory against Gustavo. In the aria ‘Voglio che sia l’indegno’, a raised eyebrow – as it were an inverse wink – makes the audience complicit in his sentiments. Her voice has a young man’s lightness, while still conveying the intensity of his mixture of emotions. At times boyish, at others suggesting the future of his maturity, Fons’ performance explores fully the complexity of the character.”
