Norah Amsellem

Vocalists — Soprano

Norah Amsellem (Manon) was equally convincing in her portrayal, with many sensitive and touching moments throughout the evening. A good sense of timing, and poise are her strong cards. —Opera Critic

Amsellem mustered a lovely voice of considerable agility with a lot of security and accuracy above the staff. She's an effective actress...The mad scene would tax any soprano, but Amsellem dealt well with both the vocal and the dramatic challenges. —Seattle Times

Amsellem has the more frail physique and a deeper understanding of the role-some heart stopping soft singing and the most upsetting death scene of any Violetta I have seen in this production. —The Times (UK)
