Reviews

"Leonora, Fiona Jopson gives an assured and expressive performance. The 2015 Sun Aria winner shows that her range and precision are equal to the task of this demanding role. Her voice is thrilling in true bel canto style in “D’amor sull’ali rosee” (On the rosy wings of love)."
Jon Jackson
Classic Melbourne
"In a startling performance that signals a solid career ahead, 2015 Herald Sun Aria winner Fiona Jopson enchanted as the appropriately noble Leonora, holding the stage alone in a performance highlight in Act 4’s D’amor sull’ali rosee / “On the rosy wings of love”. Jopson inhabited her role with poise and ease, portraying her character’s complexities from little joys to anguish with a gleaming soprano ripe with elegance, dynamism and flexibility. She gives her heart convincingly to titular troubadour Manrico"
