Emily Hodkinson as Larina in Opera Holland Park's Young Artists Performance of Eugene Oneg

"It is amazing what difference a wig and cap can make. Having met Emily Hodkinson at a Young Artists event earlier in the year I was very struck by how different her Madame Larina was from the real Emily. This Larina was very poised and centred, cool almost and she had a Jane Austen-esque sense of floating through life unaware of the little dramas eddying round her."

Eugene Onegin, Opera Holland Park (Young Artist)

Planet Hugill, June 2022

Emily is a mezzo-soprano hailing from Nottingham. 

A graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Alexander Gibson Opera School and the University of York, she was a 2022 Opera Holland Park Young Artist, and winner of the Rodney Gibson Early Music Prize at the 2021 Patricia Routledge National English Song Competition.

The 2023-24 seasons includes her solo debut at Glyndebourne as Sylviana in The Merry Widow, her debut with the Hallé, the premiere of Nobody/Somebody with Northern Ireland Opera, Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro for Saffron Opera Group,  her first Angel in The Dream of Gerontius for Nottingham Harmonic Choir, chorus at Glyndebourne, and covering the roles of Nerone and Ottavia in The Coronation of Poppea with English Touring Opera.

With a voice described as 'silvery, mellifluous and warm', Emily is forging a path as a dynamic and exciting young operatic lyric mezzo-soprano.

When not singing, Emily can be found repairing watches and helping at the family pick-your-own farm, growing thousands of pumpkins and sunflowers!
