Le nozze di Figaro at The Atlanta Opera

April 13, 2015

…with mezzo-soprano Naomi O’Connell in the trouser role of the amorous youth Cherubino as an early standout. She’s a delight, a fine singer as well as an impressively alert and supple comedienne. She turns the largo passages of “Non so più” into a dreamy show-stopper, and her “Voi che sapete” had real longing and depth.

In the pants role of Cherubino, we got Naomi O’Connell, whose dark-hued mezzo voice had just the right youthful quality… Her energetic portrayal mixed comedy with sympathy and conveyed the innate awkwardness of adolescence.
