"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)."

"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"
Paul Selar
Herald Sun
"As tragic heroine Leonora, Fiona Jopson is a standout amongst the lead cast. Delivering lovely high notes and committing herself to a focused portrayal of the character, Jopson wins the audience’s affection. Leonora’s big scene in the final act begins with the tender aria “D’amor sull’ali rosee.” Following a gorgeous introduction from the woodwind, Jopson sings this sequence beautifully."

"Fiona Jopson's lyrico-spinto voice has the emotional richness and power for Strauss' music."
Rosalind Appleby
"The music that opens the second Act is sublime. Fiona Jopson (Ariadne) has a beautiful soprano voice which made me want her to never stop singing; she was the major highlight of the show."
