"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."

"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."

Emily appeared in the October 2018 edition of WAG Magazine in the feature "A Mighty Mezzo" by Jena Butterfield.
