Since her acclaimed 1999 debut as Corinna (Il viaggio a Reims) at New York City Opera, Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling has not looked back as her mix of beautiful voice, musicality and winning stage personality has taken her to the world's most prominent opera houses, concert halls and to regular collaboration with the greatest orchestras and conductors.
A graduate of both the University of Gothenburg and London's Royal College of Music, Camilla Tilling made an early debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), a role she went on to sing at Lyric Opera of Chicago, Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre, La Monnaie and at the Munich Festival. With the Royal Opera House Covent Garden she has also appeared as as Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Dorinda (Orlando), Oscar (Un ballo in maschera), Arminda (La finta giardiniera), Gretel (Hansel und Gretel) and as Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro). At The Metropolitan Opera she has appeared as both Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Nannetta (Falstaff).
In addition to her stage work, Camilla Tilling is a highly regarded concert per- former and a regular guest of the Berliner Philharmoniker, Orchestre de Paris, Symphonie orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, NDR Sinfonieorchester, New York Philharmonic and the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Her growing discography includes three recital discs with pianist Paul Rivinius on BIS. With the Richard Strauss collection ‘Rote Rosen’ (BIS-1709) she took ‘her place among the leading Strauss sopranos of the day’ (The Sunday Times) and her Schubert recital ‘Bei dir allein!’ (BIS-1844) offered ‘Lied-singing of flesh and blood’ (Klassik-Heute.de). Reviewers of the recent ‘I Skogen – Nordic Songs’ (BIS-2154) have especially praised ‘the weightlessly soaring lyricism and almost instrumental purity’ of her voice (Opernwelt).
