Erin Morley

— Soprano

In Opening Concerts of the Mostly Mozart Festival: "The soprano Erin Morley joined the orchestra for two concert arias, “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio!” and “No, che non sei capace,” that showed off the silken clarity of her voice and the needlepoint precision of her coloratura. The first of the two arias is essentially a duet with a solo oboe, here played with deep expression by the orchestra’s principal oboist, Randall Ellis. Ms. Morley produced a wonderfully floating pianissimo sound in this monologue of a woman condemned to weep in silence as the object of her affections is promised to another. Even her most exposed high notes had a quality of contained stillness."
The New York Times, July 2015

As Sandrina in a DVD of the Opéra de Lille's "La Finta Giardiniera" for Erato: "Erin Morley, whom we last saw as Konstanze in Paris, is an enchanting 'giardiniera', with an impeccable vocal line, as convincing in the comedy as in the more serious scenes, and who will undoubtedly be a dream Sophie in the revival of 'Der Rosenkavalier' at the Bastille next year."
Forum Opera, May 2015

As Olympia in "Les Contes d'Hoffmann" at the Metropolitan Opera: "The soprano Erin Morley was a remarkable Olympia, bringing rounded tone, dynamic variety and dramatic flair — showing both humor and pathos — to a literally robotic role often cast solely for facility with stratospheric high notes."
The New York Times, January 2015
