"But the stand-out feature here is the sensational contribution of American soprano Emily Pogorelc, who is rapidly becoming a star on the European operatic scene. Her singing here has superb technical sureness, state-of-the-art command of the music's wild emotional switchbacks and firework-display virtuosity to match. While the Schweiter extract amounts to little beyond expertly written melodrama, Pogorelc delivers it at full value. The far finer expressive range and sensibility of Paisiello's idiom reveals her as an artist of much soul as well as brilliance."
“Der besondere Publikums-Magnet war Emily Pogorelc, eine junge, hochbegabte und vielversprechende Sopranistin, die die umfangreiche, sehr anspruchsvolle, einst für die legendäre Giuditta Pasta komponierte Titelpartie der Amina mit Bravour sang. Ihre stimmliche Präsenz, frappierende Technik und Exaktheit, ihre schlafwandlerische Sicherheit, vor allem auch in der Höhe, und ihre Ausdrucksfähigkeit, sind bewundernswert und begeisterten. Ergänzt durch ihre beeindruckende, differenzierende Darstellung verlieh sie der Titelfigur eine lebensvolle und liebenswerte Ausstrahlung.” EN: "The special audience magnet was Emily Pogorelc, a young, highly gifted and promising soprano, who sang with bravura the extensive, very demanding title role of Amina, once composed for the legendary Giuditta Pasta. Her vocal presence, striking technique and exactness, her somnambulistic security, especially in the high register, and her expressiveness, are admirable and thrilling. Complemented by her impressive, differentiating portrayal, she gave the title character a vivid and endearing charisma."
“Emily Pogorelc ist ein Ereignis. Sieht aus wie ein Stummfilmstar, spielt wie einer, birst vor Energie und Freude.” “Emily Pogorelc is an event. Looks like a silent film star, plays like one, bursts with energy and joy.”
"Emily Pogorelc's sparkling voice was showcased in perfectly executed coloraturas and a wide dynamic range to a very sonorous fortissimo, which was further enhanced by the acoustics of the hall, until a scene from films or amusing scenes of glassware cracking to the sopranos' high notes could come to the listener's mind."
"Emily Pogorelc as Gretel was exceptional...Pogorelc inbued [Gretel] with a welter of physical expressions and all of the colours of the vocal rainbow. Her performance was immensely sweet in the healthiest sense of that sickly word"
