Grand Théâtre de Genève
Avery Amereau is a first-rate Cherub.
With an admirable vocal simplicity, Avery Amereau (Cherubino), with her velvety caramel voice, is a perfect lover. Hiding her vibrato for the benefit of the credibility of her character, the American mezzo is the happy discovery of the evening.
A Cherubino always in turmoil, Avery Amereau has a clear and luminous voice which perfectly conveys the adolescent thrills of the character.
The pants role of the young Cherubino is very popular. A role attributed to a woman to better emphasize it’s juvenility, it has the distinction to be able to affect the audience, and the mezzo-soprano Avery Amereau knows how to leave the latter in shock. What precision! What natural ease! What a breath! Her “Non so più cosa son, cosa faccio” in suspension gives a delicate and definitely feminine tone.
A mezzo, whose femininity is happily blended, fresh, fruity, sonorous voice, Avery Amereau embodies the Cherub with an infallible sense of her role. Whether his heart swells for the Countess or Barberine, we share the impulses. Her “Non so più”, like the “Voi che sapete”, despite many references, manages to make us forget the others, so much are the sincerity and the perfection of the song are brought to us again.
As for Cherubino, he finds in the American mezzo Avery Amereau an ideal interpreter: constantly in turmoil, she possesses the agility of the role and assumes the mischievousness of a youth
Chérubin is Avery Amereau, a young American mezzo, whose femininity is fortunately blurred, a fresh, fruity voice, with an emotional ardor, both juvenile and almost adult. Not only are her two tunes exemplary, but her recitatives reflect the quivering vitality of adolescence
