“Amongst this very energetic cast, Eleanor Ross was the most magnetic performer of the ensemble; her performance sparkled with real playfulness, her singing was beautiful, and although everyone else tried valiantly, she alone managed to make the music sound natural and logical.”
(One Stop Arts)
“Eleanor Ross’s charmingly sung and characterful Belinda…”
“Soprano Eleanor [Ross] in particular was entrancing, with perfect intonation even in the highest register, and unforced clarity, whether against the other soloists or the full choir.”
Soprano Eleanor Ross trained as an oboist at both the Royal College of Music and the Norwegian Academy of Music, and then as a singer with Dennis O’Neill at the Wales International Academy of Voice. Eleanor was an OperaWorks artist at English National Opera 2013-14, and now studies privately in London with Neil Baker.
Notable solo engagements include the Villa-Lobos ‘Bachianas Brasileiras No.5’ at Cadogan Hall, Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ at St John’s Smith Square, ‘The Ultimate Opera Gala’ with Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Dennis O’Neill and the orchestra of Welsh National Opera, and a new CD of Handel cantatas with Dame Ann Murray and The Amade Players.
Recent opera roles include Konstanze (Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail, Mozart) on tour with Pop Up Opera, Lili (Carina, Ansdell-Evans) in workshop with English National Opera, Juliette (Romeo et Juliette, Gounod) with Riverside Opera, and Cover Dalinda (Ariodante, Handel) for the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence. Eleanor returns to the Opera in Oborne festival later this year as various roles in a selection of opera scenes, but first joins English Touring Opera for their Spring 2017 tour as an ensemble member in Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Patience’, Shepherd Boy & ensemble in Puccini’s ‘Tosca’ and as Alona in their new education opera ‘Different’ by Llywelyn Ap Myrddin.
