"Ellen Angharad Williams made a delightful Aline (as she was Angelina earlier) and partnered Alexis ideally with her wide range and strength of voice." - Seen and Heard International (2018)
"It would be remiss not to mention the mesmerising Welsh soprano, Ellen Angharad Williams as 'Mabel'. She was utterly charming on her debut performance with the company and she is certainly one to watch in the future. Her performance with the chorus girls was outstanding and her range of vocals incredible." - North West End (2018)
"Meanwhile Mabel sitting on a rock is absorbed in her book and ignores the girls' activity until they rebuff the advances of Frederic. Mabel's waltz aria is superbly sung with soaring top notes by Ellen Williams" - Seen and Heard International (2018)
"Ellen Williams sang this demanding role with much poise and promise, her voice agile with silvery charm" - The Guardian (2017)
"Ellen Williams sings and looks the part and 'Myself I shall adore / if I persist in gazing' is a delight" - Art Scene in Wales (2017)
"The Semele of Ellen Williams was convincingly self-absorbed and she sang with both grace and agility. Her interpretation of both 'Endless Pleasure' and 'Myself I shall adore' were among the highlights of the evening and revealed distinct promise" - Seen and Heard International (2017)
"Ellen Williams sang with heart-piercing sweetness" - The Times (2015)
"Soprano Ellen Williams effortlessly renders the lyrical songs" - The Guardian (2015)
Welsh soprano Ellen Angharad Williams has been praised for her “poise and promise, her voice agile with silvery charm” (The Guardian), and has given performances in Cadogan Hall, the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Concert Hall Glasgow, Bridgewater Hall, the Wales Millennium Centre and St. David’s Hall where she performed with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Ellen completed her Masters studies in Opera at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2017 having previously read Spanish and French at the University of Exeter. Ellen is also an alumna of Tibor Varga Music Academy in Switzerland, Dartington International Summer School, and COSI Opera Festival in Italy.
Ellen has performed in many classical music festivals in the UK including the Winning Professionals concert in the Fishguard International Music Festival, the Young Artist’s Recital in Cowbridge Music Festival, in the Dartington International Festival as First Niece in a concert performance of Britten’s Peter Grimes, in the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, and worked with Sir Karl Jenkins as a soloist in the World Premier of his Beirdd Cymru (The Bards of Wales) in the opening concert for the National Eisteddfod of Wales. Ellen also enjoys regular performances of sacred works and has appeared as the soprano soloist in Haydn’s Creation in the Brangwyn Hall, in the Fauré Requiem and Handel’s Messiah in St David’s Hall, and in Orff’s Carmina Burana in Gloucester Cathedral.
In 2018 Ellen joined the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company as a principal artist for two consecutive seasons, performing the roles of Mabel (The Pirates of Penzance), YumYum (The Mikado), Plaintiff (Trial by Jury), and Aline (The Sorcerer) in Buxton Opera House and theatres across the UK. Further operatic roles include the title role in Handel’s Semele, Zerlina in Mozart’s Don Giovanni and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Lady Harriett in Flotow’s Martha, and Nannetta in Verdi’s Falstaff conducted by Carlo Rizzi. Ellen was also delighted to perform scenes as Nanetta in an opera gala in Buckingham Palace, and looks forward to a gala evening this summer with the orchestra of Welsh National Opera in St. David’s Hall.
