Emily was born in Melbourne and is a graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. While still in Australia Emily won the Australian Singing Competition and the McDonald’s Aria, which led her to move to London to take up a scholarship at the Guildhall where she studied with Janice Chapman.
Emily has sung with Opera Holland Park as the High Priestess in Aida and as Miss Jessel in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw. She has also been a returning member of English Touring Opera performing Eleonora in L’Assedio di Calais and as Cilla in Waxwings, a production for children with special education needs. Other performances include Fiordiligi in Cosi Fan Tutte and Berta in Il Barbiere di Siviglia with Pop Up Opera, Amelia in Simon Boccanegra, Ellen Orford in Peter Grimes, Wellgunde and Ortlinde in Wagner’s Ring with Fulham Opera and Eudora in Bellisaro for Chelsea Opera Group. Emily was a finalist in Fulham Opera’s inaugural Verdi Prize 2015.
This coming year Emily will return to Pop Up Opera as Elisetta in Il Matrimonio Segreto.
