WELSH NATIONAL OPERA Octavian, Der Rosenkavalier

OPERA MAGAZINE

Lucia Cervoni’s Octavian is naïve and impetuous but genuinely devoted; her mezzo is wonderfully firm and clean‚ full of youthful freshness. Handsome in a red-trimmed grey frock‚ Octavian bursts with an adolescent swagger - collar turned up‚ sword stabbing the floor between his legs - which is softened by Cervoni’s warm lyricism.

THE TIMES

...while Lucia Cervoni’s Octavian brimmed with youthful passion.

THE SUNDAY TIMES

...the soprano role of Octavian is sung by a mezzo, the Canadian Lucia Cervoni, who ought to be better known here. This was my sixth Rosenkavalier this season, and I can’t think of one in which the female trio was more evenly balanced, or blended as well in the many duets and trios.

CRITICS CIRCLE

The trio of sopranos – Evans and Louise Alder (Sophie) with mezzo Cervoni – pulled out all the stops: what a team. Evans disappears for much of the show‚ but still managed to dominate proceedings. Cervoni started good and got better in the trouser-role that turns into a frock-and-pinny one before re-breeching‚ if you see what I mean. Her scordatura ‘Mariandel’ went down a treat.

WHATS ON STAGE

The Canadian Lucia Cervoni sang the great trouser role of Octavian with tonal beauty and an impressive palette of mezzo colours, and she allied these to an irresistible physical performance, both funny and endearing, as the loved-up teenage aristo.
