Mozart The Marriage of Figaro (Susanna)

Opera North (February 2020)

Soprano Fflur Wyn was a terrific, spirited Susanna, her voice purer and clearer the higher she reached, and adept at the stylised gestures used by all the characters, particularly with the arms and hands.

Richard Wilcocks, Bachtrack****
