“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"
"Soprano Emily Pogorelc gave musical offering with his concert aria “Non euro l’affetto” and Licenza Aria (the first version) from Il song di Scipione and “L’ombra de’rami tuoi” from Ascanio in Alba. Emily was a highlight of the evening really showing off some fine vocals, really going for the trills and the pacing of the recitative"
“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.”..."
"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."
