Hailed by the South Florida Classical for her “luminous tones” and “lush voice,” soprano Brittany Renee Robinson amazes audiences with her finesse and shimmering stage presence. In 2018-2019 Ms. Robinson brings her Konstanze to Opera Orlando, for her house debut in the new Josh Shaw production of The Abduction from the Seraglio, and to California where she debuts with Opera San Jose. She also returns to Knoxville Opera to debut the role of Madame Herz and Nella in a double bill production of Mozart's Impresario and Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, as well as Lucia in Knoxville’s Education/Outreach Production of Lucia di Lammermoor. After great success with her first concert series, Ms. Robinson will travel back to Minnesota to perform at the University of Minnesota’s Monday Recital Series at the Ted Mann Concert Hall, as well as make her Lincoln Center debut at the David Geffen Hall in New York City!
Recent appearances have included her international debuts at the Semperoper Dresden, the Deutsches Theater München, The Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv, Israel, and the Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari, Italy in the role of Bess and Clara with the New York Harlem Theatre World Tour of Porgy & Bess and Sister Rose in Jake Heggie's riveting production of Dead Man Walking with Opera on the Avalon in Canada. National debuts have included Konstanze with Salt Marsh Opera’s production of The Abduction from the Seraglio, Musetta in Knoxville Opera’s La Bohème, featured soloist with Out of Box Opera, The Handel Choir of Baltimore, Guelph Symphony Orchestra conducted by Judith Yan, Greensboro Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Dmitry Sitkovetsky, as well as was honored to be a part of Kathleen Battle: The Underground Railroad - A Spiritual Journey as an ensemble member and soloist.
Ms. Robinson has performed with other companies such as Piedmont Opera, Chautauqua Opera, Crested Butte Music Festival, Light Opera of New York, Sounds of South Dakota, The American Institute of Musical Studies (AIMS), and the Baltimore Municipal Opera. Other career highlights include her debut with the Florida Grand Opera as Musetta in La Bohème, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Yvette in La Rondine, and the Page in Rigoletto. She has also performed the Queen of the Night (with the legendary Samuel Ramey as Sarastro) and Pamina in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, as the title role of Lakmé with Opera Theatre of the Rockies, for which her performance was praised by The Gazette as "a performance which words can do no justice, her crystal clear yet sultry voice produced a sound and spirit that equals her sensual and artistic achievement." Other roles include Tytania in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Adele in Die Fledermaus, Sr. Constance in Dialogues des Carmelites, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, Olympia & Antonia in Les Contes de Hoffmann, Alice Ford in The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Mrs. Nordstrom in A Little Night Music.
A frequent recitalist, Ms. Robinson has toured with the Siena Chamber Orchestra in Italy and across the United States. Concert engagements include her performance as a featured artist with the Wynton Marsalis’ U.S. Tour of the Abyssinian Mass with Chorale Le Chateau and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and appearances with the critically acclaimed American Spiritual Ensemble. While in Miami, Ms. Robinson was a guest soloist in the "Concert for a New Renaissance" and worked closely with the world-renowned jazz flutist Nestor Torres and the Miami Youth Symphony.
Ms. Robinson’s prestigious awards include, Senior Grand Prize Winner: Young Patronesses of the Opera, 3rd Place and Audience Favorite: Harlem Opera Theater Competition, 2nd Place and Scholarship Recipient: The Denver Lyric Opera Guild Competition Award, Rosalind Jackson Memorial Award: Crested Butte Music Festival, The Miriam Goodman Award: Chautauqua Opera and Regional Finalist: Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
