Fflur Wyn and Robin Blaze “first-rate” in WNO’s Orlando

28 September 2015

Fflur Wyn and Robin Blaze have been described as “first-rate” (The Telegraph) and “technically superb” (The Times) for their performances in Welsh National Opera’s production of Handel’s Orlando. Singing the roles of Dorinda and Medoro respectively, the following is a selection of some of the excellent reviews for both Fflur and Robin:

“Individually they were all first-rate:...Fflur Wyn and Rebecca Evans the elegantly twittering and lamenting ladies, Robin Blaze their second-string suitor.” – Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

“The effortless Robin Blaze made much of the character of Medoro…[and] a musical highlight was Evans and Blaze’s bittersweet trio with the luminous Fflur Wyn, superb as the young but wise, hopeful yet resigned Dorinda.” – Rebecca Franks, The Times

“Robin Blaze’s Medoro – the pure tone of his countertenor an excellent foil for Zazzo – is similarly poised. Meanwhile, Dorinda…is sung with great accomplishment by Fflur Wyn.” – Rian Evans, The Guardian

“Fflur Wyn is delightful as poor Dorinda…technically superb.” – Stephen Walsh, theartsdesk.com

WNO’s Orlando shows at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff until 7th October and is on tour in the UK until 18th November. For more information and to book your tickets click here.
