Praised as "delightfully over the top" and "most enjoyable to watch and listen to", Emily Geller is a New York-based mezzo-soprano. She is a versatile artist employing her rich and unique lower register and masterful acting skills in new works, opera and operetta, music theater, and oratorio.
Emily was recently a part of New York Opera Fest where she received rave reviews for creating the role of the image-obsessed Hollywood Mother (Sylvia) with a love for plastic surgery in the world premiere of Chunky in Heat with Experiments in Opera.
"As Mother and Father, contralto Emily Geller and baritone Joshua Jeremiah brought layers of complexity to their seemingly shallow and emotionally stunted characters."
- Steven Jude Tietjen, Opera News
"Geller possesses an amazing mezzo-soprano voice with a lower extension that has to be heard to be believed. At times, it could be cold, almost masculine sounding, but warm and dreamy at others."
- Rick Perdian, Seen and Heard International
"As the mother, Emily Geller is busy warding off sorrow with botox, the plastic surgeon’s knife and starvation. Ms. Geller is a thrilling contralto, tripping off high and low notes as she tips around in her spikes."

"Everything about this production is so uniformly superb it's hard to single out an individual for praise."
- James Jorden, Observer
