Emily Fons press reviews

“In Lyric's staging, the roles of the Muse of Poetry and her earthly incarnation as Nicklausse, Hoffmann's sidekick, take on greater musical and dramatic presence. This is the breakout part those of us who have been following the ascent of Emily Fons have been waiting for. Not only does the Ryan sophomore look suitably androgynous, she invests Nicklausse's "china doll" and "violin" arias with a warm, pliant mezzo, secure throughout its range.” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, October 3, 2011

"Mezzo-soprano Emily Fons sang resplendently..." —Timothy Mangan, OC Register, May 6, 2011

"Fons offered a remarkably flexible account of the rondo finale to Rossini’s La Cenerentola that was a genuine show-stopper." —Chicago Classical Review, Dennis Polkow, September 12, 2010
