“The cast was a dream. Rachel Willis-Sørensen as Desdemona has the perfect spinto voice: she is able to produce a clear, chiming sound with delicate top notes while lending a darker quality to the lower registers. She exhibited a refinement in her acting and singing that felt innate and authentic. The famed ‘Willow Song’ brought me to tears: with subtlety and beauty, she expanded on the personal tragedy of Desdemona to make the universality of Verdi’s rumination on mortality feel immediate.”
