  • Janáček Jenůfa

    English National Opera, London Coliseum
    Mar 2024
    • Davis sings with an extraordinary radiance (hers really is a most beautiful voice) and vivid depth of feeling, so that Jenůfa’s rapture, anguish and eventual strength, moral as well as emotional, all really hit home. Her grief at the death of her baby has a desperate immediacy only achievable through superb artistry. As despair finally yields to love and hope in the closing scenes, the blaze in her tone is simply breathtaking.

    • Young Irish soprano Jennifer Davis in the title role complements a strong, clear voice with impeccable acting skills. Her top notes are secure, her diction exemplary. Her star is rising very fast.

    • It was Jennifer Davis who owned the stage in the title role. Her voice is as powerful as her stage presence … Davis’ responses to Kostelnička Buryja, were frequently heart-melting, as was her prayer to the Virgin Mary.

    • Jennifer Davis stole the show, with a bell-like tone that was truly beautiful and the interaction between the Kostelnička and Jenůfa was astonishingly moving.

    • Jenufa of Jennifer Davis was beautifully nuanced. One really felt for her throughout, and her nobility of purpose was beautifully captured at the end.

    • Jennifer Davis’ bold distinct soprano filled the Coliseum in an utterly credible performance, but the technique was there to file the voice down in delicate pianissimo that was completely audible. Hers is a voice that glows just as much as her portrayal of the character; her Jenůfa is a beacon in a very murky moral ecosystem.

    • Jennifer Davis uses the power behind her beautiful lyric soprano to go the extra mile, as she always does.
