Biography

British soprano Robyn Allegra Parton recently made debuts for the Royal Opera House as Barbarina and for Glyndebourne Festival Opera as Agnes in the world premiere of Nothing by David Bruce. She was awarded a role in Keiser's Octavia at the 2016 Cesti International Vocal Competition to be performed at the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik in 2017.

Robyn studied with generous support at the Royal College of Music, English National Opera's Opera Works and at the Wales International Academy of Voice, following a degree in music at Worcester College, Oxford.

Finalist in the 2012 Kathleen Ferrier Awards and semifinalist in Berlin's 2013 Das Lied competition, Robyn is a Britten Pears Young Artist and the recipient of Garsington Opera's Helen Clarke Award, the Nachwuchspreis at Salzburg's Oper Im Berg Festival, Les Azuriales Festival's Most Promising Young Singer Prize, the Philip and Dorothy Green Young Concert Artist Award for Making Music, the Oxford Lieder Festival Prize, a Goldman Award from the Worshipful Company of Musicians and the Joaninha Trust Award for which she was nominated by mentor Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

Her operatic appearances include Barbarina in Le Nozze di Figaro and Peg in The Virtues of Things (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden), Agnes in Nothing (Glyndebourne Festival Opera), Excerpts in Amadeus (National Theatre), Mercédès in Carmen (Opéra-Comique de Paris/Grand Theatre de Luxembourg), Ensemble and Soloist in Monteverdi's L'Orfeo (Bayerische Staatsoper), Zerlina in Don Giovanni and Vixen in The Cunning Little Vixen (Co-Opera Co), and Belinda in Dido and Aeneas (Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme).
In 2016, Robyn received good critical acclaim for her portrayal of Morgana in Handel's Alcina for Ryedale Festival Opera, and as the Narrator in the world premiere of Michael Ellison's Sea-Crossed Fisherman at the Istanbul Music Festival.

As a concert artist Robyn has performed with ensembles including the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchester, Gustav Mahler Chamber Orchestra, LPO, RPO, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Oxford Philomusica, Luxembourg Philharmonie and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra.
