Both are outsung by the glittering Norwegian soprano Caroline Wettergreen as the fairy, oddly portrayed as a louche chain-smoker.
Best are the top and bottom of the cast, Caroline Wettergreen as a Queen of the Night who dazzles with her top notes, one of the best I have seen in 40 years!
The Financial Times
Enlightenment took spectral form as Caroline Wettergreen illuminated the stage with a dazzling display of singing. In Massenet’s stratospheric notation her Fairy character is less a Godmother than a Queen of the Night, and the young Norwegian pinged a magical coloratura with preternatural accuracy. Indeed, the fast-rising (in every sense of the term) soprano outshone all her colleagues on opening night.
Spring of 2020 includes many exciting projects for Caroline. She will record her first CD; Beethovens "Christus am Ölberge" with Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and make her debut at Deutsche Oper Berlin. She will do a recital for Bergen International Festival and return to Bayerische for Mahlers 8th Symphony, conducted by Kirill Petrenko
