Emma Bell - Handel - The Metro London


05 September 2005
The Metro London
Warwick Thompson

Emma Bell shot the fame when she appeared in the title role of Handel's opera Rodelinda at Glyndebourne last year, and consolidated her triumph as Vitellia in La Clemenza di Titoat the ENO few months ago. No wonder: she's a singer with no-holds-barred stage presence and hot-wired voice that sparks when she sings.
