Following a successful debut as La Fée in Fiona Shaw’s production of CENDRILLON by Massenet for Glyndebourne on Tour in October 2018, Suzanne will return to Glyndebourne Festival Opera to cover the role March-August 2019.
In Summer 2018 Suzanne performed as Najade in ARIADNE AUF NAXOS at Longborough Festival Opera.
Naiad (Suzanne Fischer), Dryad (Flora McIntosh) and Echo (Alice Privett) are individually characterised in fine voice; their voices blend stunningly when required to do so.
Mel Cooper, Plays to See
Naiad, Dryad and Echo knit during the Prologue. As they spin and wrap the wool in various formations (the movement director is Michael Spenceley) they feel like Norns weaving the rope of destiny, with the cords also helping to delineate their own relationships as they use them to pull each other close. The parts are sung superbly by Suzanne Fischer, Flora McIntosh and Alice Privett.

The supporting singers were first class […] Suzanne Fischer (Naiad), Flora McIntosh (Dryad) and Alice Privett (Echo) were a dream team as Ariadne’s attendants.

On the 1st of September 2017, Suzanne sang the aria of the Queen of the Night with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra at the new Harpa Concert Hall in Rekyavic conducted by Daníel Bjarnason. Watch video here:
