Ashley Emerson

  • Soprano


In the 2009-2010 season, Ashley Emerson will be seen at the Metropolitan Opera as Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro and Young Lover in Il Tabarro. For her Seattle Opera debut, she will create the role of Young Amelia in the world premiere of Daron Hagen’s Amelia. Concert engagments include the Mozart Requiem in a joint project with the Choral Art Society of Maine and Portland Ballet.
This past season, Ms. Emerson was a Gerdine Young Artist with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis, where she covered Florestine in The Ghosts of Versailles. In concert, Ms. Emerson was a featured soloist with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra singing arias from Mozart’s Zaide, where she was described as “sweet, defiant, and sensual, Emerson has the deep, gutsy sense of urgency that lends any opera singer an air of dramatic authenticity (Bangor Daily News).”
