  • Così fan tutte (Despina)

    Royal Opera House
    Jun 2024
    • As the two schemers, Gerald Finley and Jennifer France both sang like a dream... France’s crystalline soprano sparkled as Despina

    • Jennifer France’s Despina was full of fun, with great comedic timing and clowning as the disguised doctor and notary, and was highly nimble vocally, with some cracking top notes too.

    • The real subversive centre of the piece is the maid Despina sung by British soprano Jennifer France as a red-headed cocktail-shaking, bar-strutting whirlwind. Despina pushes the two sisters over the cliff edge of fidelity in her aria: “Una donna a quindici anni”—”A fifteen-year-old woman” making the most of her translucent vocal tone and powerful coloratura edge. France has to double up as an ancient doctor and notary utilising her fine comic acting skills.

    • Jennifer France’s Despina is an onstage dynamo, revelling in silly voices for her absurd turns as a doctor and notary.
