Emily Vine
  • Le nozze di Figaro – Barbarina


A soprano of “ethereal delicacy and radiance” (Opera Magazine), Emily Vine read music at the University of Bristol, before graduating with Distinction from Royal Academy Opera. She has performed and covered major rôles for English National Opera, Scottish Opera, Garsington Opera and Grange Festival Opera.

Emily is also in increasing demand as an artist in contemporary repertoire, having performed Maria Bertram in Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park, Soprano in George Benjamin’s Into the Little Hill, cover for Miss Shlessen in Philip Glass’s Satyagraha for English National Opera and, for Scottish Opera, the world première of Lliam Paterson’s The Eighth Door.

Concert highlights include Mozart’s Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall, and a riotous performance of Orpheus in the Underworld at St. John’s, Smith Square with Opera Danube. In recent years, Emily has enjoyed making a foray into the world of Gilbert and Sullivan, having sung all of the major soprano roles with the National Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company at the International Festival in Buxton.

Emily now lives in Somerset with her husband and two young children, and is thrilled to be revisiting her favourite opera with Saffron Opera Group!
