Elinor Popham is a hugely talented soprano, with an impressive technique – not least in the bel canto repertoire – and high musical intelligence.

She deserves to go far.”


Barry Millington

Chief Music CriticEvening Standard

“A beautiful voice with warmth and musicality . . .

Engaging, honest performing."

Linnhe Robertson, Isabel Jay Prize 


 London-born Soprano, Elinor Popham, is a highly versatile singer with a natural sensitivity and musicality which flows through her work, both in opera and in concert. 

Having read English Literature at Warwick University, Elinor was awarded an MA Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music last year. She is now based in London, taking on new roles and recital projects.


Combining her love of Literature and Singing, she is also in the process of writing a selection of libretti for operatic and song projects, in the hope of bringing new audiences to opera and creating strong and nuanced writing, particularly for female characters.


An advocate for inclusivity in opera, Elinor also regularly works for the Learning & Participation department at the Royal Opera House ...



Najade - Ariadne auf Naxos

Uncovered Opera

St Mary's Festival, N1 2TX

6th September 


Having learnt this role pretty speedily as a cover for the fantastic Uncovered Opera, it was an exciting challenge to get to perform it earlier this summer.


I am thrilled to have the opportunity to perform the piece again in September for the St Mary's Festival, Islington.

Violetta - La Traviata (cover)

Instant Opera

Normansfield Theatre

6th - 8th October

I will be covering the role of Violetta for Instant Opera, alongside group of very talented castmates. This is one of my favourite roles and I really appreciate the chance to get to grips with it, with the support of the fantastic Instant Opera team.


For all upcoming and past events

"Popham's lament on loneliness is especially poignant and vocally sophisticated."
