  • Luigi Rossi's Orpheus

    Keri Fuge’s tinker of a Cupid is an especial delight, her every appearance signalled by an improbable pair of white wings (“I wear them for decoration”)

    Mark Valencia What's On Stage
  • Gluck's Orfeo and Euridice

    Love plays a role as Cupid, embodied by a young lady (Keri Fuge) who sings a wonderful Aria and who brings color in an otherwise black and white production. Director Alexander Kubelka gives this cupid an oversized paint brush instead of the usual arrows in her quiver, with which she begins the piece and gives several music cues

  • Handel's Messiah, St George's Bristol

    English soprano Keri Fuge commanded the evening with a brilliance only a singer well-versed in the repertoires of early music could produce. It’s evident that she knows every inch of her voice and, more importantly, how to apply her talents. Fuge’s grace, compassion, technical precision, agility, flexibility, dramaturgy, and effortless purity needed to be a true Handelian soprano are a few core components of her expertly crafted instrument. Much like the Greek revivalist architecture by which Handel’s glorious oratorio found its home the night I attended, Fuge perfectly integrated the fragrant aroma of baroque filigree and coloratura-drenched Italianism with the pious and stout choral traditionality of the Germans by which Handel was intimately understood. Her first aria, “Rejoice Greatly,” was a master class in oratorio technique, and because of Fuge’s experience in early music and classical repertoire, a cogent balance between dramaturgy and order was maintained. Her entire range, well-balanced yet so indulgent, was on display throughout the night, “How beautiful are the feet” demonstrated Fuge’s ability for legato perfection. She imbued “I know that my redeemer liveth” with such beauty, grace, and elegance and delivered, in my opinion, the best aria of the night, “If God be for us.” Clean, evocative, and rich, Fuge set a new precedent for what it really means to be a 21st-century oratorio singer.
