A few weeks ago, Léo Fernique caused a real sensation in Il Nerone, an adaptation of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea produced by the Opéra national de Paris at the Athénée Théâtre Louis-Jouvet. The production with the Ensemble Le Poème Harmonique conducted by Vincent Dumestre created a unanimous buzz with the press, as proved by the following excerpts:
“The true revelation of the evening is doubtlessly Léo Fernique as Arnalta who succeeds to be funny, however never sacrificing the beauty of his voice and deeply moving with the most subtle nuances”. (Bachtrack)
“Léo Fernique, a first-class Arnalta, is both extremely funny and vocally impressive, with a great sense for the rhythm of the text.” (Opéra online)
“Léo Fernique copes easily with the challenge which occurs if casting the role of Arnalta with a counter-tenor (instead of a tenor as usual). He even handles the tessitura of the role playfully, possessing an irresistible stage-presence too.” (Diapason)
Welcome to our Artist’s Management, dear Léo Fernique, and long life our team!
