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.

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

(…) 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.

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

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
