“Soprano Jessica Fishenfeld chose three art songs by Debussy; her dramatic voice and phrasing were lovely. Fishenfeld has good vocal control and refined sound that’s beautiful to hear.”

Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro

“In the role of Susanna, Figaro’s bride to be, soprano Jessica Fishenfeld gave a very strong performance. Susanna is a challenging role both vocally and acting wise. Fishenfeld handled the large vocal range with ease giving the audience soaring, glittering high notes as well as nice, easily audible chest tones in the lower register, particularly in the aria “Deh vieni, non tardar.” Fishenfeld has an innate comic ability and her entire performance was played with a delightful twinkle in her eye.”
- Jack Gardner / EDGEftlauderdale (full review)

“Speaking of Susanna, singing the role of Figaro’s fiance is Jessica Fishenfeld. Not only is her voice crystalline and pure, her comic timing is spot on. While most often the ingenue is either a ditz or just plain innocent, not so with Susanna. She keeps Figaro’s scheming machinations on track. Whether it’s guiding the young lover, Cherubino, out the nearest window or doing a little scheming and seducing of her own Susanna is the glue that holds everything together. In the hands of a less capable performer this role could have fallen flat, Fishenfeld carries the role and makes it her own.”
