Le nozze di Figaro, Clonter Opera review – a wedding full of future stars
Margo Arsane (Susanna) and Henry Neill (Figaro) stood out from the opening scene. She’s just graduated from the Guildhall (and before that Lyon and Munich) and is a most accomplished performer, acting and reacting to the story all the time, and her soprano is pure and clear, with power available but never over-used.

SENSITIVE NEGOTIATIONS: HANDEL’S RADAMISTO, GUILDHALL
« Arsane gives a performance of exceptional sincerity and beauty as Tiridate’s abandoned queen and becomes the emotional centre of the work, using tasteful vibrato like an artist’s palette to shade and accentuate her lines, negotiating switches through the fourth wall and back with the ease of a talented actor. »

« Margo Arsane’s bell-like clarity shone as brightly as her superb French diction. »
