"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"
"Pogorelc's rendition of "Glitter and Be Gay" is a standout highlight of the operetta. Local opera fans ought to run to see this performance while Pogorelc is still a relative newcomer. Tickets to see the future star will be hard to come by later."
“A few of the current Ryan Center singers already seem ready for prime time. In that category is soprano Emily Pogorelc...The Milwaukee native was the runaway star of the evening in the title role Donizetti’s “The Daughter of the Regiment.”..."
"As Romilda, soprano Emily Pogorelc sang with a beautifully lyrical voice. She gave a riveting performance which easily took center stage whenever she was present."
