Orlovsky (Die Fledermaus), Lyric Opera Studio Weimar:

“Mit viel Feuer sang und spielte auch Annabella Ellis aus Bulgarien den Orlovsky und bekam für Champagner-Arien stürmischen Beifall.”
Larissa Gawritschenko und Thomas Janda, Online Merker

Rosina (Barber of Seville), Swansea City Opera: 

“Count Almaviva, hopelessly in love from afar with the beautiful Rosina, sung by mezzo Annabella Ellis, of the sparkling eyes and thrilling coloratura.”
– Andrew Liddle, Features Writer for The Yorkshire Times.

“Annabella Ellis is his feisty Rosina who is more than a match for both the lecherous guardian, Don Basilio, and is as wily as Figaro himself.”
– Mike Smith for Arts Scene in Wales.

“Making a fine Rosina is Annabella Ellis, very much the Spanish flower, which all the other characters seem to adore. Her voice, whether singing her glorious arias or the many duets, trios and ensemble parts heard within made for essential listening.”
– The Sprout.

“A star turn from Wheatley himself, matched in pace and presence by Annabella Ellis (a splendidly refusenik Rosina).”
– by Steph Power for The Stage.

“Tenor Aidan Coburn and mezzo Annabella Ellis were well-matched as Almaviva and Rosina. Both combined vocal intensity with charm, had good diction, showed great dexterity in their coloratura singing and acted extremely well. Impressively.”
– Cath Barton for Wales Arts Review.

“Håkan Vramsmo was a solid barber and surely the best singer together with Rosina (Annabella Ellis).”
– Andrea Gaini for Quench

Orlovsky (Die Fledermaus), Royal Conservatoire Scotland:

“Annabella Ellis as Orlovsky had a light voice, but made up for it in sheer verve, warming very quickly to Falke’s plans.”
– David Smythe for Bach Track 

Mrs Coyle (Owen Wingrave), Royal Conservatoire Scotland:

“The characterisations of the ladies made them quite distinct – the highly sympathetic Mrs Coyle (Annabella Ellis), of course, but the others were also treated with greater subtlety as the plot developed.”
– Opera Scotland

“Annabella Ellis as Mrs Coyle is the only character to show an iota of sympathy for Owen was part of a strong trio of women.”
– David Smythe for Bach Track 

“If the work presents problems for us in 2016, it is less that his denunciation of war seems more reasonable to most now than the appearance of misogyny in the succession of female voices lining up to denounce him, his teachers wife Mrs Coyle (Annabella Ellis) the most sympathetic to his ostracism.”
– Keith Bruce for PressReader

Fiordiligi (Cosi fan Tutte)Royal Conservatoire Scotland: 

“Richard Shaffrey was well supported by Annabella Ellis’s majestic Fiordiligi, eventually persuaded by his eloquence, then driven to real fury on discovery of the plot.”
– Opera Scotland
