Emma Bell

Soprano


"That woman, Elisabeth, is played by Emma Bell and the British soprano rockets herself into the Wagnerian premier league with this performance. Her timbre has always been unique — imagine Kathleen Ferrier up an octave — but now Bell shows so much more: perfect intonation, tenderness, subtle variation, compelling acting."
