Soprano Robyn Marie Lamp has served as Opera Fusion’s Company Manager since 2016. In her duties, she oversees production details, rehearsal and performance schedules, correspondence with venues and artists, contract management, coordination of the website, and ticketing services.
Ms. Lamp’s performances are earning her recognition and roles from rare Bel Canto gems to world premieres. 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. She was also seen in the title role of Ariadne auf Naxos in a reduced version of Strauss’ opera with south Florida’s Opera Fusion. 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 2017 – 2018 season will find Ms. Lamp appearing as the soprano soloist in Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem and making her debut with Orchestra Miami singing the First Lady in Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
In 2016, Ms. Lamp created the role of Romaine Patterson in Michael Ross’ politically charged opera Not In My Town in Opera Fusion’s world premiere production. The Palm Beach Arts Paper praised her “large and attractive voice, well-suited for her big aria…” and her “warmth and personality”. She also took first place winner in the prestigious Lois Alba Aria Competition and was a finalist in the South East Region of 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 and contemporary roles, Ms. Lamp is an accomplished Mozartian, counting among her roles Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), Fiordiligi (Cosi fan tutte), 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, Blanche de la Force (Dialogues of the Carmelites), and the title role in Anna Bolena.
Ms. Lamp’s work on the concert stage is critically acclaimed for “displaying a wonderful covered sound that blossomed richly as the music ascended.” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer). Her appearances have included Messiah, arias from Korngold’s ravishing Die tote Stadt, Ralph Vaughan-Williams’ Dona nobis pacem, Haydn’s St. Nicolai and Lord Nelson Masses; Fauré’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and Seely’s Brave Souls & Dreamers in Boston, 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.
