Tenor

Alessandro Fisher
REVIEWS

Kathleen Ferrier Awards 2016 / Wigmore Hall, London

“Fisher’s performance was supremely accomplished, delivering songs in French, Russian, German and Italian with equal ease – and his high notes were floated with exceptional grace.”

The Independent

 

“Fisher was an engaging story-teller, relaxed of voice, singing with sensitive phrasing. Fisher’s voice was sweet and dreamy, but never unfocused, perfectly conveying the mystery and pathos of loss.”

Opera Today

 

Don Polidoro: La finta semplice / Classical Opera

“Given tenor Alessandro Fisher’s honeyed tones, Rosina might have done better to choose him; why she falls for Don Cassandro is a mystery…”

The Arts Desk

 

”Lukas Jakobski presented his strong bass to excellent effect as Don Cassandro and Alessandro Fisher his equally accomplished tenor as Don Polidoro, with the splendid acting of both helping to stamp out their respective characters.“

Music OMH

 

“Alessandro Fisher’s gentle tenor beautifully expressed the hapless, hopeless Don Polidoro’s tender but ardent avowal of love, ‘Sposa cara.’”

Opera Today

 

Christian: Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebotes / Classical Opera

“…sung with notable control and a steady, sympathetic tone by the tenor Alessandro Fisher…”

The Arts Desk

 

“As Christian, Alessandro Fisher, battling bronchitis though you would scarcely have guessed from his warm, lyrical tone, took physical risks (swooning to the ground in a confined space) and had lovely, rakish charm.”

The Guardian

 

“Alessandro Fisher was touching as the vacillating Christian. Flexible and agile of voice when lured by Worldly Spirit’s seductive charms, his tone took on a darker hue when he recalled the torments of Hell and Judgement…”

Opera

 

“Alessandro Fisher is a welcome new tenor on the block, smooth and elegant.”

Opera Now

 

Bellecourt: Vert-Vert / Garsington Opera at Wormsley

“Oxford Lieder Young Artists Winner Alessandro Fisher is the other tenor delight of this mixed evening.”

The Arts Desk

 

“He has an open, warm and soft-grained tenor: a delight to listen to.”

Musical Criticism

 

Law Student: And London Burned / Temple Church

“Alessandro Fisher brings his considerable vocal lustre to bear on hios role as the insipid Law Student.”

The Financial Times

 

Arcas: Dardanus / English Touring Opera

“…Alessandro Fisher, whose lines leapt over the footlights.”

Opera

 

Dardanus / English Touring Opera

“Vocally the evening belongs to Alessandro Fisher. Originally cast in a supporting role, he stepped up into the title role with enormous confidence and a most wonderfully limpid tone to really make his mark. It is hard to imagine the role being sung better.”

Daily Info

 

Count Bandiera: La scuola de’ gelosi / Bampton Classical Opera

“As the Count, tenor Alessandro Fisher was every inch the Georgette Heyer hero in a bravura performance, naturally commanding and fabulously insouciant, with lyrical tone and surprising philosophical depth behind his agenda of pleasure...“

Bachtrack

 

“Alessandro Fisher in the central role convincingly embodies the nature of a confident, charming rake with lyrical and well-projected singing…”

Classical Source

 

“Fisher displayed an appealing soft-grained tenor, expressive eyes and comic nous.”

Opera

 

Banquo: Macbeth (Luke Styles) / Linbury Studio Theatre

“…a soft-toned, engagingly naïve portrayal from Alessandro Fisher…”

Bachtrack

 

“…notable contributions from (ia) Alessandro Fisher’s forthright Banquo.”

The Guardian
