Ms. Fons is currently rehearsing for the title role in Faramondo at the International Handel Festival.
“Faramondo, King of the Franks, and his former ally Gernando, King of the Swabians, are in love with the same woman, Rosimonda, daughter of the hostile Cimbrian King Gustavo. Her brother Adolfo loves Faramondo’s sister Clotilde and rebels against his father, who sentences him to death. A story of revenge, intrigues, love and jealousy takes its fateful course. Out of love for Rosimonda, the disguised Faramondo joins forces with her father in the fight against the traitors.”
