Robin
Johannsen

soprano

Berlin-based American soprano Robin Johannsen studied singing at the University of Cincinnati. She began her career as a young artist with the Deutsche Oper Berlin, after which she joined Leipzig Opera. She has gone on to establish an international career both on the opera stage and in concert with a special affinity for the baroque and classical repertoires.

The ‘superbly agile and fresh-sounding’ (Opera News) soprano has sung opera roles such as Konstanze in Mozart’s Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Norina in Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, and the title role of Telemann’s Emma und Eginhard.

Johannsen’s numerous concert engagements have included performances with the Dresden Philharmonic, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and RIAS Kammerchor, amongst others. She has a close working relationship with René Jacobs and the Freiburger Barockorchester, but has also collaborated with Marin Alsop, Teodor Currentzis, Andrea Marcon, Christian Thielemann, and many other conductors.

In 2014, Sony Classical released her first solo disc, In dolce amore, a world premiere recording of baroque arias and cantatas by Antonio Caldara, conducted by Alessandro De Marchi.

In the 2020/21 season, Robin Johannsen performs for the first time with the Concertgebouworkest.
