A couple of good photos of Emily d’A in the Opera News apropos her recent prise du role as Rosina at Glimmerglass.
At twenty-three, she has a rich, flexible, darkly gleaming voice, well suited to a fach she defines as “a lot of Rossini, a lot of Handel and Mozart—anything early.” High on her wish list are Strauss’s Octavian and Composer.
Octavian? I would not object. Nobody with a pulse would.
PS: Video from Francesca Zambello’s production which doesn’t look particularly exciting.
