Ms. Edris received rave reviews for her role debut as Alice in Robert le Diable at Opéra national de Bordeaux. Olyrix enthused, "agile voice with a round and youthful vibrato.

Her delicate legato is precise and its lines nuanced" while Opera Online called her performance "magnificent." This is Ms. Edris' second appearance in Bordeaux, having performed Manon at the opera house in 2019.

ALL IN THE FAMILY FOR THREE YOUNG OPERA SINGERS

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

May 24, 2017

"At center stage will be Pene Pati, the brilliant young tenor who is making his first starring appearance with the company, singing the licentious Duke of Mantua. Amid the swirl of the Duke’s party will be soprano Amina Edris, Pati’s wife of a year and a half, as the Countess Ceprano. And somewhere else in the scrum, Pati’s brother Amitai will be on hand as the courtier Borsa.

'It’s incredibly unique to have all three of us on stage at the same time,' says Edris, her enthusiasm practically boiling over. 'How often do you see three family members together on the stage of an A-level opera house?'"
