Fflur Wyn

"As well as clear diction, Wyn displayed a fine soprano voice – bright and supple but with a pleasing, steely quality in the upper register – and breathtaking technical control."

Financial Times

"Fflur Wyn's Flora is beautifully sung and convincingly petulant."

The Guardian

Wagner Siegfried (Woodbird)

Longborough Festival Opera (June 2024)

Fflur Wyn as the Woodbird, personifies an agitated bird with her fluttering eyelashes, quick movements and sweet voice.

Inge Kjemtrup, The Stage*****

Gluck Orfeo ed Euridice (Euridice)

Opera North (November 2022)

Fflur Wyn (Euridice) shines in the confrontation with Orfeo – “Why won’t you look at me? Don’t you love me?"

Ron Simpson, The Reviews Hub

Soprano Fflur Wyn sang creditably as Euridice, a role with rather limited opportunities to shine. In the aria ‘Che fiero momento’ Euridice conveys her sorrow at Orfeo’s possible unfaithfulness and Wyn demonstrated her attributes of warm tone and agreeable levels of sincerity and expression.

Michael Cookson, Seen and Heard International

Gluck Orfeo ed Euridice (Euridice), Chelsea Opera Group

Cadogan Hall (October 2022)

Fflur Wyn was a characterful Euridice, her full lyric soprano shining and glossy. […] she vividly conveyed Euridice’s passion, scorn, and sorrow.

Claire Seymour, Opera Magazine

Handel Theodora (Title role), Northern Aldborough Festival

(June 2022)

Fflur Wyn shares with her colleagues a notable record of Handelian experience, and her Theodora was strongly characterized as well as being beautifully sung. Their final farewell melted sight.

Melanie Eskenazi, MusicOMH*****

Janáček The Excursions of Mr. Brouček (Malinka/Etherea/Kunka)

Grange Park Opera (June 2022)

Brouček is surrounded by Janáček’s well-observed villagers, the painter Mazal (Mark Le Brocq), the bartender Würfl (Andrew Shore), and the Sacristan (Clive Bayley) with his daughter Málinka (Fflur Wyn)… The vocal writing is extremely demanding, not always quite logical, but brilliantly sustained by all.

Nicholas Kenyon, The Telegraph****

Fflur Wyn sings with accuracy and a thrilling shine in her three well-differentiated soprano roles.

Claire Seymour, The Stage****

Fflur Wyn convinced in both roles, as she did in her more serious impersonations in the second half.

Melanie Eskenazi, MusicOMH****

Bach St John Passion, The Academy of Ancient Music

The Barbican (April 2022)

The soprano Fflur Wyn bubbled with joy in her solo

Geoff Brown, The Times****

Mozart Cosi fan Tutte (Despina), Saffron Opera Group

Saffron Hall (February 2022)

As Despina, Fflur Wyn showed off her effortless talent for suggesting mischief simply by standing still and letting an arched eyebrow or minimalist hand gesture take the strain. Her soprano is now quite substantial, but agile and word-friendly, and she radiates vitality.

Alexandra Coghlan, Opera Magazine

Handel Alcina (Morgana), Opera North

(February 2022)

Fflur Wyn is charming as Alcina’s coquettish sister, Morgana, her showstopper Tornami a vagheggiar as easy as laughter

Alexandra Coghlan, The Telegraph

It was left to Fflur Wyn’s Morgana to bring a bit more life to the proceedings, and not just in her showpiece act one aria (which some Alcinas steal for themselves). She and Nick Pritchard’s Oronte provided the most touching performances of the evening.

Martin Kettle, The Guardian

As an unusually serious Morgana, Fflur Wyn is sympathetic as she spars with Nick Pritchard’s effectively befuddled Oronte.”

Neil Fisher, The Times

Fflur Wyn made a fiery Morgana, Alcina’s sister, and tore into her big aria ‘Tornami a vagheggiar’ with relish.

Martin Dreyer, Opera Magazine

(…) company favourite Fflur Wyn (Morgana) has never sounded so intensely dramatic

Ron Simpson, The Reviews Hub

Fflur Wyn, another company favourite, was a feisty and sympathetic Morgana, making the most of her showpiece aria, ‘Tornami a vagheggiar’.

Melanie Eskenazi, Music OMH

Fflur Wyn shone as Morgana, with a thrilling take on her aria Tornami a vagheggiar.

Gavin Engelbrecht, The Northern Echo

CD: Handel The Choice of Hercules (Pleasure), Gottingen Handel Festival

ACC26415 (September 2021)

Fflur Wyn, bright and youthful of tone, sings these with panache.

Richard Wigmore, Gramophone

Todd Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Title role)

Welsh National Opera (June 2021)

Fflur Wyn, who first created the role of Alice for OHP, is again the out-and-out star. A gifted actor, her warmly lyrical soprano carries effortlessly.

Rian Evans, The Guardian

The Welsh National Opera makes a triumphant return to the stage with a bravura performance of the children’s story which has Fflur Wyn as a beguiling Alice
