‘But this opera is all about Violetta, a role that makes extraordinary demands on its actor. Up very close indeed, we see every smeared stain of over-applied makeup on Emma Walsh's pained face; every twitch of self-disgust as she comes to understand that her body is all she has - or, more accurately, all the world values; and we wince as every last piece of self-esteem is chipped away by those more powerful than her. And, of course, that pain comes through in the singing, the soprano voice penetrating every corner of this small hothouse venue, our escape from it as circumscribed as Violetta's escape from her fate. Her tumultuous applause was well earned.’ www.broadwayworld.com (2018)

‘La Traviata is double-cast. Culture Whisper heard the first cast, with Emma Walsh as a Violetta of consummate range, both vocally and dramatically, the voice that throbs with erotic promise at the outset grows in sincerity with the discovery of true love and breaking with disillusion. A magnetic stage presence in this tiny venue made me long to see her again on the bigger stage that she would inhabit with ease.’ www.culturewhisper.com (2018)

‘Clear-voiced, Tipperary-born soprano Emma Walsh was delightful and, when called upon, vulnerable in the title role.’ - The Irish Times (2015)

‘The Irish soprano was a wickedly funny Musetta, delivering her Quando m’en vo with skill and relish.’ OPERA Magazine (2015)

‘Vocally and visually, Emma Walsh made for a most satisfying Hanna Glawari. Possessed of a pearly voice, Walsh sang with pellucid diction, hitting all the notes with ninja-like accuracy. Her Vilja song was exquisitely sung, soaring up to the top notes effortlessly and the song “Jogging in a one-horse gig” was delightfully coquettish.’ - Bachtrack.com (2015)
