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 2016-2017 she made her international debuts at the Semperoper Dresden, the Deutsches Theater München, The Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Tel Aviv, Israel, and at the Petruzzelli Opera House in Bari, Italy in the role of Bess and Clara with the New York Harlem Theatre World Tour of Porgy & Bess. She also made her debut as Konstanze in the a new Josh Shaw production of The Abduction from the Seraglio with Salt Marsh Opera, appeared as a guest soloist with the Handel Choir & Orchestra of Baltimore, returned to the role of Musetta in Knoxville Opera's Education/Outreach Production of La Bohème, and performed the role of Sister Rose in Jake Heggie's riveting production of Dead Man Walking with Opera on the Avalon in Canada. Upcoming engagements include multiple Messiah concerts around the New York City area, returning to Knoxville Opera to debut Madame Herz and Nella in a double bill production of Mozart's Impresario and Puccini's Gianni Schicchi, as well as making her Lincoln Center debut at David Geffen Hall!
In 2015-2016, she was as a soloist with the Guelph Symphony Orchestra performing in their Season Opening Gala Concert conducted by Judith Yan, was featured as the Soprano Soloist in Haydn's Creation with the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Dmitry Sitkovetsky, was honored to part of Kathleen Battle: The Underground Railroad - A Spiritual Journey as an ensemble member and soloist, and reprised the role of the Queen of the Night with Piedmont Opera's production of The Magic Flute.
Ms. Robinson has performed with companies such as Chautauqua Opera, Opera on the Avalon, Crested Butte Music Festival, Opera Theatre of the Rockies, Light Opera of New York, Sounds of South Dakota, Bay Area Summer Opera Theatre Institute (BASOTI), 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 Die Zauberflöte, as the title role of Lakme 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, Blondchen in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor, Sr. Constance in Dialogues des Carmelites, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, Olympia & Antonia in The Tales of 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. Recent 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: MET National Council Auditions.
