Simone Osborne

Simone Osborne

Vocalists — Soprano

"Simone Osborne shone and her voice soared as Nannetta, the Ford's daughter, as she was given one of the few real arias in the work, a third-act beauty which she delivered with grace and care." —Robert Harris, The Globe and Mail, October 4, 2014 - Nannetta in 'Falstaff' at the Canadian Opera Company

“Simone Osborne as Barbarina was an eye-opener. She sang with a dynamically rich sound that had plenty of body. Dramatically, she is to be commended for all that she was asked to do in the production. If the production’s concept was successful at all, it is to be owed to her.” —Matthew Richard Martinez, BachTrack, May 30, 2013 - Barbarina in 'Le nozze di Figaro' with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic

“Pamina is her strongest work yet, and her voice has added a measure of maturity and complexity since her performance in last season's Romeo et Juliette.” —David Gordon Duke, Vancouver Sun, March 11, 2013 - Pamina in 'Die Zauberflöte' at Vancouver Opera
