About

Feisty, fiery, vocally secure and dramatically impressive

Hugh Canning (Nedda Pagliacci, OHP)

Julia Sporsén recently had a major success in Stockholm singing Violetta Valery in Verdi’s La Traviata at Folkoperan. Before that she also made a great impression in the role of Kumudha in John Adams’ opera A Flowering Tree at the Gothenburg Opera. Other main roles include Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, Antigone in the world premiere of Julian Andersson’s Thebans and the title role in Martinu’s Julietta, all at English National Opera in London. She has sung Michaela for the Royal Swedish Opera and Nedda and Gilda for Opera Holland Park in London. In the 2016/2017 season she is singing Michaela, Pamina an Elsa-Lill (Herr Arnes Penningar by Gösta Nyström) for the Gothenburg Opera.

This coming Summer, Julia will debut the title role in Kat’a Kabanová by Janacek at Opera Holland Park in London.

Julia is also a keen lieder singer and has done a number of concerts together with the accompanist Joseph Middleton, for example at the Wigmore Hall.

She did her training at the Royal Academy of Music in London, by whom she was recently appointed an ’Associate’.
