Hermann Klein - 7 April, 1891

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, pages 353-4:

On the second night of the season (April 7) Emma Eames made her London debut as Marguerite in "Faust," that being her first appearance on any stage save the Paris Opera, where she had  been a favorite for the two preceding years. Her singularly rich, flexible soprano voice, her refined and expressive singing, and her graceful bearing won for her warm admiration and instantaneous success. She looked Goethe's heroine to the life, and her conception of the character charmed alike by its naturalness and its tender womanly feeling.
