Linda Miller, lyric coloratura


Linda Faye Miller received international recognition for her appearance in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award winning film Age of Innocence. Her onscreen performance, as Swedish soprano Christine Nilsson singing the love-duet from Gounod’s Faust, opens the film, igniting the love story between Michelle Pfeiffer’s and Daniel Day-Lewis’ characters.

In Calgary and Edmonton, she appeared twice for Alberta Ballet singing Four Last Songs of Strauss in the ballet of the same name by renowned choreographer, the late Rudi van Dantzig, who commended her for her “touching and magnificent singing.” She also sang in Alberta Ballet’s Carmen and Carmina Burana.

Under the baton of Hans Graf, Linda gave numerous performances, including Clärchen’s lieder in the rarely performed incidental music to Beethoven’s Egmont, in the leading role of Alice in Verdi’s Falstaff, Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Ms. Miller’s voice defies a narrow classification, enabling her to sing lyric coloratura roles as well as more dramatic spinto roles. Linda made her stage debut as Constanza in Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio with the Toronto Operetta Theatre, an aria from which is on this afternoon’s programme.

Among numerous radio and television appearances, she recalls an interview on CBC’s Morningside with Peter Gzowski as a “delightful highlight.”

An alumnus of University of Toronto’s Voice Performance department, Ms. Miller brings excellence in musicality, interpretation and language to vocal mastery.

Linda will be accompanied on piano by Mimi Park.
