The yellow label has inked in Canadian mezzo Emily D’Angelo for unspecified projects.

Slippedisc first clocked her six years ago.

Since then, she has won the Met Auditions and a Bernstein Prize.


  • Darrell says:

    I was unaware that DG was still in the classical music business.

  • Brent P. says:

    And she’s absolutely terrific in the current ROH La Clemenza di Tito

    • Tristan says:

      not at all sorry – nothing special like the entire production – rarely seen such mediocre performance at ROH
      Frankly this house has reached a very low level

  • Straussian says:

    Congratulations to Emily! She has a terrific voice and will go far.

  • J Higgins says:

    Emily d’Angelo is a very special and charismatic artist. Sadly being a ‘yellow label’ artist no longer carries the clout it used to, but hopefully they invest properly in her and she does not produce half-baked releases that disappoint. That would be a welcome surprise!

    I too felt a little underwhelmed by her Sesto at Covent Garden: expectations were high but sadly not fulfilled. That said, I have no doubt she will triumph in other things in the future.

  • Stephen Lord says:

    I adore her and I had her as an astounding ANNIO. And she is a great, great human.
