Leonore // Welsh National Opera

"Of course, it helps when your singers also act convincingly. As Marzelline, so lovestruck that she doesn't realise that "Fidelio" is all that he appears to be, Natalie Christie, foregoing the ditziness that often besets the role, reveals a bright, open timbre that nevertheless carries the necessary emotional weight. Her opening duet with Jaquino, the jailer who wants to marry her, emerges as rather more than the wan comedy it usually is."
