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.
