Described by Opera Canada as “a red haired vixen with a sparkling voice”, Irish-American soprano Emily Casey has been making waves as an emerging talent in the international opera scene. With a rapidly growing reputation, Ms. Casey is known for her specialization in the dramatic coloratura soprano and bel canto repertoire, showcasing her exceptional vocal abilities and versatility on the operatic stage.


Ms. Casey has had the privilege of collaborating with numerous opera companies and symphony orchestras in the United States and abroad in both the operatic and concert repertoire, leaving audiences in awe of her vocal prowess and compelling dramatic acting abilities. This past season she made her debut with Richmond Symphony Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Beethoven's 9th and recently was the featured soloist in a performance with His Majesty’s Royal Marine Band Plymouth.


With a string of notable roles under her belt, Ms. Casey is quickly gathering international acclaim and recognition. Her recent performances include the formidable Konstanze in Mozart's Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the enigmatic Gulnara in Verdi's Il Corsaro, the tragic Giulietta in Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi, and Michaëla in Bizet's Carmen. Her interpretations of these challenging roles have solidified her status as a rising talent in the opera world.

Ever the versatile artist, her foundation in musical theater has not only enriched her singing but has also finely tuned her acting and dancing skills. Her recent performance as Gianetta in Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Gondoliers showcased her prowess as a triple threat and delighted audiences to a sold out house for the duration of the run.

Ms. Casey has competed and placed in several prestigious competitions including The George & Nora London Foundation Competition (semi-finalist), the London Classical Music Competition (first place), the Partners for the Arts Competition (second place), and the Alexander & Buono International Vocal Competition (third place). Ms. Casey has appeared in concert with The Richmond Symphony Orchestra, The Annapolis Chamber Orchestra, Maryland Lyric Opera, Piedmont Symphony Orchestra, Columbia Orchestra, Trinity Chamber Orchestra and Frederick Symphony Orchestra. She has had the pleasure of working with some of the most famous names in opera including Aprile Millo, Richard Bonygne, Marco Gandini, Renée Fleming and Sherrill Milnes. 

This season's engagements include Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi), Tatyana (Eugene Onegin), Miss Silverpeal (The Impresario), Rose Maybud (Ruddigore) as well as soloist concert work.
