Christina Raphaëlle Haldane

British-Canadian soprano Christina Raphaëlle Haldane enjoys an active performing career in the UK, Europe, Asia and North America. Highlights from the 2014/15 season included a return to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, to cover Fiorilla IL TURCO IN ITALIA, Mercedes CARMEN for the Cambridge Philharmonic, as well as sell-out recitals for Handel House London and the Oxford Lieder Festival.  This year she covered Nella in the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden’s production of IL TRITTICO and will return in 2017 to cover the role of Silvia in Thomas Adès’ THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL.

In January 2012 Ms. Haldane made her mainland European stage debut, singing Cleopatra to the Cesare of Franco Fagioli, in Finnish National Opera’s new production of GIULIO CESARE IN EGITTO. This success was quickly followed with Handel’s SOLOMON in Krakow with the Capella Cracoviensis conducted by Maestro Alessandro de Marchi. She made her international operatic debut singing the title role in LA FILLE DU RÉGIMENT for Musica Viva Hong Kong in 2010, returning in January 2011 to perform Adina in ELISIR D’AMORE. Her performance as Lucinda in Mendelssohn’s DIE HOCHZEIT DES CAMACHO for the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra/European Opera Centre with Vasily Petrenko has also been released on recording in 2014. Other recent performances include Clorinda LA CENERENTOLA at Iford Arts, a role in which she previously made her debut with Scottish Opera. On the concert stage, her Viennese Programme with the Brighton Philharmonic was described as “superb”. The 2013 season also saw her return to her native Canada, to celebrate her Acadian roots by performing a French song recital for the 51st Festival Acadien. Christina joined the Britten centenary celebrations in 2014 by returning to the Cambridge Philharmonic to sing the role of Second Niece PETER GRIMES. She is dedicated to performing contemporary music and was delighted to contribute to the workshops for Mark Anthony Turnage and Richard Thomas’ new opera ANNA NICOLE at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden.
