BIOGRAPHY

Her performances as Tatyana (Eugene Onegin) in Baden-Baden and Paris helped make the Slavonic repertoire and its heroines the international calling card of Orla Boylan. Critically acclaimed interpretations of Janácek’s Jenufa and Kát’a Kabanová have taken her to Deutsche Oper Berlin, Staatsoper Hamburg, Oper Köln, Opéra de Lyon under Lothar Koenigs, and Glyndebourne Festival Opera under Jirí Kout and Markus Stenz. More recently she sang Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta for Opera Holland Park and Lisa (The Queen of Spades) for Komische Oper Berlin with equal success. The title roles in Arabella, Ariadne auf Naxos and, most notably, the British stage premiere of Die Liebe der Danae for Garsington Opera under Elgar Howarth have established her as a respected interpreter of Richard Strauss. In concert she has appeared in Britten’s War Requiem at the Perth International Festival under Paul Kildea, scenes from Berg’s Wozzeck with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Andrew Davis, Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi, Delius’s Idyll and Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3 with The Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder, and Berg’s Sieben frühe Lieder and Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder with the Sinfonieorchester St Gallen under Jirí Kout and the Hallé Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder.
