Camilla Tilling, soprano
April 16 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$70
“The excellent Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling” (Los Angeles Times) “sounds at the height of her powers, her voice still limpid, fresh and youthful, her interpretative skills those of a mature artist” (The Sunday Times).
“It’s difficult to resist the purity of her sound, the loveliness of her pearly, bright tone…and unfailing musicality” (Gramophone). “She sings with an unaffected directness, allowing the music to speak for itself” (Opera Now).
