About Elinor

Elinor, a prize-winning Soprano, studies at The RAM, performing classics from Opera and Music Theatre, while moonlighting as a Jazz Singer!
Singer (soprano)
London

London-based Soprano, Elinor Rose Popham, is a highly versatile young singer, currently studying at The Royal Academy of Music, generously supported by the John Clemence Trust. While pursuing a career in opera, she also has a great deal of experience in other genres and loves to perform Show Tunes and Jazz Standards, alongside beautiful opera classics, embracing different styles and characters with real energy. Elinor has recently been awarded several exciting prizes for her singing, including the Opera Unmasked Aria Prize, and the North London and John Miller Young Recitalist Prizes, as well as Runner up of the inaugural Isobel Buchanan Award. She was also selected as one of 20 semi-finalists for the National Mozart Competition in April last year, and later received her first official review from the Stage, who described her singing at Grimebourne Festival as: ‘especially poignant and vocally sophisticated.’ Elinor is keen to work with you to provide a perfect selection of repertoire, to bring a timeless and elegant atmosphere to weddings and receptions, or a even vibrant and engaging night at the opera for a special event. She is also very quick to learn new repertoire to ensure that the music for the occasion is tailored to you and your ideas, especially for funerals and memorials. Elinor is also a very experienced Jazz singer, often performing as part of the Duo, Ruby and Gold with talented pianist and composer, Alex Hall (Guildhall/RAM).

We were very lucky indeed to secure Ellie to sing at our charity event. The moment she started to sing she had the audience’s rapt attention. Her repertoire was a mix of classical arias and jazz standards and her delivery of such a wide range of material was spellbinding. She has a truly amazing voice and a personality to match. I have already rebooked her.

Meanwhile Ellie Popham showed a nice, wry wit that helped enliven an already bizarrely funny Act I ... and when it came to her set piece as the ‘Hungarian countess’ who discredits errant husband Eisenstein at the palace ball, she really turned it on. The tone of her sound in Strauss’ parody of a csárdás gained a spectacular warmth, that beamed out amid the almost surreal spotlighting (James Fitzpatrick) which picked her out so movingly as she held the ball guests spellbound. Popham, always abetted by conductor McGrath, also lent character to the set piece ensembles – her lulling Act 1 duet with Alfred, for instance, and the extended Act 3 trio with Eisenstein and Alfred; plus between those, the combative duet with Eisenstein at the ball
