Bio

Finnish soprano Sofia Kallio studied at the University of Music Karlsruhe in Germany under Professors Mitsuko Shirai and Roland Hermann. Currently her teacher is the brazilian soprano DeKanel-Starling. Ms Kallio has participated in several masterclasses with prominent teachers such as KS Felicity Wheathers, KS Brigitte Fassbaender, Prof. Elisabeth Werres and Sherrill Milnes.  Already during her studies she was hired by Strasbourg Opera Studio in France, where she sang e.g. Vitellia in La Clemenza di Tito (Gluck) and Lucrezia (Respighi). After Strasbourg Ms Kallio was appointed to Pforzheim Opera. She spent three years there singing all central soprano roles such as Tatyana, Musetta, Susanna and Nedda. From 2008 to 2014 Kallio was a soloist in Coburg Opera, Germany. She continued singing a large number of central soprano roles. She was critically acclaimed, in particular her interpretation of Massenet's Manon was praised. Her other crucial roles in Coburg were Liu, Gilda, Pamina, Marie (Battered Pride), Armida, Violetta and Donna Anna. In 2005 Sofia Kallio made her sensational debut at the Savonlinna Opera festival. She has also sang at the Kokkola Opera, Würzburg Opera as well as Meininger Opera. Ms Kallio has won several international prices. She recieved the Wagner-Scholarship and last year she was given the Gottlob-Frick-Medaille.  Sofia Kallio has been praised for not only her warm mezzo-like timbre, her musicality, but also for her versatile and unique stage acting. Mrs Kallio is an exceptional and experienced opera singer with vast experience from different productions. Her recent change of fach from lyrical soprano to a full dramatic Wagnerian soprano has been described as astonishing. She is a perfect example of a memorable Scandinavian voice.  _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Die finnische Sopranistin Sofia Kallio lebt und singt seit 2001 in Deutschland.
