Robyn Marie Lamp
Soprano Robyn Marie Lamp’s performances are earning her recognition and roles from rare Bel Canto gems to well-known classics. Her voice has been described as “robust, easily produced, golden but warm rather than metallic.” In the summer of 2017, she sang the role of Adele, and covered Metropolitan Opera soprano Angela Meade’s Imogene, in Bellini’s rarely heard Il pirata at Caramoor’s Music Festival. Of her Adele, one reviewer wrote, “I was especially impressed by every phrase sung by Robyn Marie Lamp as Imogene’s confidante. I’d love to hear how she’d surge through a bel canto cavatina. Keep your ears peeled.” The 2019 - 2020 season will find Ms. Lamp appearing as Clotilde and covering the title role in Bellini’s Norma with Boston Lyric Opera and appearing as the soprano soloist in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the South Florida Symphony Orchestra. She will also return to Gulfshore Opera to sing an all Puccini concert and in September 2019 can be seen portraying the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica with south Florida’s Opera Fusion.
In 2019, Ms. Lamp made her Carnegie Hall debut singing the soprano solo in Ralph Vaughan-Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem with Mid-America Productions. She also sang three Verdi Messa da Requiem’s in her 2018 – 2019 season, one of which she sang with only hours’ notice, as she filled in for an ailing soprano with the Southwest Florida Symphony Orchestra. Of her Verdi, one reviewer wrote, “Robyn Lamp has a radiant soprano voice which she handles with great expertise and ease. She plucked bell-like high As, Bs and Cs out of some celestial sphere, always interpreting the text with deep-felt emotion; her interpretation of the line “I am made to tremble and fear” was truly affecting.” She also won an Encouragement Award in the prestigious Rising Stars Vocal Competition at Vero Beach Opera and has been a three-time Regional finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
She has appeared as a Sarasota Opera Young Artist, covering Nedda in Pagliacci and performing scenes as Elettra (Idomeneo) and Natalia Petrovna (Hoiby’s A Month in the Country). In addition to her affinity for Bel Canto roles, Ms. Lamp is an accomplished Mozartian, counting among her roles Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), Fiordiligi (Cosi fan tutte), First Lady (The Magic Flute), the soprano soloist in Vesperae solennes de confessore, and early in her training, Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro). Her repertoire also includes Mimì (La bohéme), Elvira from Verdi’s Ernani, Lucrezia Borgia, Ariadne (Ariadne auf Naxos) and the title role in Anna Bolena.
Ms. Lamp’s work is critically acclaimed for bringing an “immense warmth and an ability to spin long lines of melody” to the concert stage. Her appearances have included Messiah, Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, Haydn’s St. Nicolai and Lord Nelson Masses; Fauré’s Requiem, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Petite Messe Solennelle, and Seely’s Brave Souls & Dreamers in Boston, New York, Baton Rouge, Newburyport, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale.
Ms. Lamp holds a Master of Music degree from Louisiana State University and a Bachelor of Music from Florida Atlantic University.
