Vocally, the evening was in good hands, starting from Huw Montague Rendall’s Fiorello, who, in his Proms debut, showed an exciting stage presence and honeyed baritone that demonstrated that he is a Figaro to watch for in the future.

Bachtrack

Huw Montague Rendall was a consummately suave, personable Falke, his singing and acting equally authoritative, and he was light on his feet in all the banter.
