Welsh soprano, Llio Evans, hails from the famous village on the island of Anglesey, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
With her sparkling vocal tone and charming stage presence, Llio particularly revels in coquettish and comic roles.
Recent highlights include Celia (Iolanthe) for English National Opera, Iris (Semele) for Garsington Opera, Cilla (Waxwings) for English Touring Opera, and The Little One in the revival of Music Theatre Wales' production of The Golden Dragon (Eötvös).

"Above all, though, it’s a tribute to Llio Evans’s performance as the one character who doesn’t shift identity, and whose story holds everything together."
