Ellen Williams

Praised by The Guardian for her "poise and promise, her voice agile with silvery charm", Ellen has performed in theatres and concert venues both internationally and across the UK including Cadogan Hall, Royal Concert Hall Glasgow, Bridgewater Hall, the Wales Millennium Centre and St. David’s Hall where she was a finalist in the Welsh Singers Showcase 2018 and performed with the BBC Orchestra of Wales.

Equally at home on the operatic stage as the concert platform, in 2018 Ellen joined the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company for performances at the International Gilbert &Sullivan Festival in The Harrogate Royal Hall, in Buxton Opera House and theatres across the country on their UK tour cast as Aline in The Sorcerer, Plaintiff in Trial by Jury and Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance, where her waltz aria was “superbly sung with soaring top notes” (Seen and Heard International). Ellen returned to the company this summer to sing the roles of Yum-Yum in The Mikado and Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance. "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" (Buxton Opera House 2018). Her Semele with Mid Wales Opera "sang with both grace and agility... revealed distinct promise" (Seen and Heard International), and further operatic roles include Zerlina (Don Giovanni) at the COSI Opera Festival in Italy conducted by Leslie Dala, First Niece (Peter Grimes) in the Dartington International Summer Festival, Lady Harriet (Martha) for Burry Port Opera, and Valletto/Fortuna (L’incoronazione di Poppea) for Ensemble OrQuesta. During her studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Ellen was awarded the Aneurin Davies Memorial Prize and the Elias Soprano Prize and was fortunate to sing the role of Nannetta (Falstaff) conducted by Carlo Rizzi, Barbarina and cover Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), Emmie (Albert Herring), Cinderella in Massenet’s Cendrillon, and scenes as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) and Lakmé in gala concert with the Orchestra of Welsh National Opera. Two particular highlights during her studies were singing the role of Nannetta in excerpts from Verdi’s Falstaff in a celebratory concert for HRH the Prince of Wales in Buckingham Palace, and performing Baroque favourites with Rachel Podger and Badinerie in the Dora Stoutzker Hall.

In concert, Ellen was delighted recently to sing the soprano solo in Haydn’s Creation in the Brangwyn Hall. Ellen has also sung Orff’s Carmina Burana in Gloucester Cathedral conducted by Adrian Partingon, Bach’s Magnificat and Christmas Oratorio in Llandaff Cathedral, and Handel’s Messiah in St. David’s Hall, and very much looks forward to returning here to sing the Fauré Requiem in October. Ellen has performed in many UK classical music festivals including the ‘Winning Professionals’ recital at Fishguard International Music Festival and the Royal British Legion Wales Festival of Remembrance concert in St. David’s Hall, and appeared as The Minstrel in the Welsh premiere of The Bards of Wales conducted by Karl Jenkins, performed in the opening ceremony of the National Eisteddfod of Wales, to which Ellen owes many of her early successes in singing. In 2014 Ellen released her debut EP Skylark on the Welsh label Sain, and that same year was delighted to be invited to support Rhydian Roberts on his UK tour.
