«""Talya Lieberman ist als Isabella eine Traumbesetzung: Jede Nuance, jede Regung scheint für ihren glockenklaren, wendigen und im Geiste der Musik klug phrasierenden Sopran geschrieben zu sein."»
Opernglas Magazin (2018)
«"With the other singers doing double or triple duty, it was difficult for any one performer to truly stand out, although Talya Lieberman, a new ensemble member who made a memorable impression earlier this season in Die Perlen der Cleopatra, sounded radiant as The Fire (here reimagined as the sun), The Princess and The Nightingale."»
Opera news (2018)
«"Und muss sich doch von Talya Lieberman die Show stehlen lassen, der blutjungen Sopranistin aus dem hauseigenen Opernstudio, die angstfrei ihre Chance ergreift, in der elaboriertesten Arie des Stücks abzuräumen, bei der sie als Rudolfs ungarische Ex-Gespielin ihre Rachegelüste in feurigem Czardas-Furor auslebt. Um in ihrer zweiten Nummer, einer irrwitzigen ägyptischen Polka mit dem Titel „When I Auditioned For The Harem Of The Shah“, gleich noch eins draufzulegen."»

Recently described by Opera News as "radiant," "poetically compelling," "delectably stylish" and "technically refined," soprano Talya Lieberman is equally at home with operatic, art song, operetta and musical theater repertoire. She was nominated 3 times for Nachwuchkskünstlerin (Up-and-Coming Artist) Kritikerumfrage der Opernwelt 2017.  From 2016-2018 she assumed the soprano position in the Opernstudio at Komische Oper Berlin, where was seen in over 120 performances in 2 seasons, including 6 premieres and performing on tour in Spain, Hungary, China, South Korea, and Japan.  She continues at KOB for the 2018/2019 season, reprising her roles in Fiddler on the Roof, Die Perlen der Cleopatra, L’enfant et les Sortilèges, and Die Zauberflöte (on tour in Australia, New Zealand, and New York City), as well as adding the role of Dorothy in a critically acclaimed production of Pierangelo Valtinoni's new operatic version of The Wizard of Oz. Among other highlights from last year's season are the lead role in a premiere of Paul Abraham's operetta Märchen im Grand Hotel, and Zerlina in Herbert Fritsch's production of Don Giovanni.

Prior to moving to Germany, she performed with Cincinnati Opera as Lucy in the world premiere of Fellow Travelers, with Opera Columbus as Musetta in La Bohème, and Wolf Trap Opera as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro.  She is an alumna of Internationale Meistersinger Akademie, Wolf Trap, Merola Opera Program of San Francisco Opera, the Chautauqua Institution Voice Program, as well as the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and Duke University.  Among other prizes, she is a multiple-year winner in the Kurt Weill Foundation's Lotte Lenya Competition.
