About

British lyric-coloratura soprano Robyn Allegra Parton is described by Opera magazine as ‘stylish’, ‘dynamic’ and ‘irresistible’, and as a ‘standout’ by The Observer.

“Roles in 2018 include Zerbinetta (Longborough Festival Opera), the title role in Coraline by Mark-Anthony Turnage (Royal Opera House, Barbican Theatre) and Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Musik und Theater Saar).

In 2015, Robyn performed Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro for the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Robyn has created the roles of Agnes in Nothing by David Bruce (Glyndebourne Festival Opera), Peg in the Virtues of Things by Matt Rogers (Royal Opera Linbury), and the Narrator in the Sea-crossed Fisherman by Michael Ellison (Istanbul Music Festival). Other roles include Morgana in Alcina by Handel (Ryedale Festival Opera), excerpts of Mozart heroines in Amadeus for the National Theatre, and Clelia in Octavia by Reinhard Keiser (Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik) for which she was praised by German press Online Musik Magazin for her ‘clear high tones and clean, flowing coloratura’.

As a concert artist Robyn has performed with ensembles including the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Gustav Mahler Chamber Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Oxford Philharmonic, Luxembourg Philharmonie and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra. Robyn has recorded the title role in Charpentier’s Caecilia Virgo et Martyr for Novum and songs for soprano, oboe and piano by Stephen Dodgson for Toccata Classics.”
