LIMELIGHT

“Mezzo Emily Edmonds brings a supple, creamy tone with crisp articulation of the text to this striking work… revealing a gleaming top register and tonal warmth throughout.”

“The mezzo role of Semira was sung by Emily Edmonds, surely a star in the making, singing with golden tone and convincing expressivity.”
