BIOGRAPHY

The German soprano Nikola Hillebrand was born in Recklinghausen, Germany and began her singing studies at the age of 17 with Prof. Fenna Kügel-Seifried at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich. While still a student, Nikola performed at the Bonn Theater as Belinda in Dido & Aeneas, Papagena and Queen of the Night in Mozart's Magic Flute as well as Marzelline in a new production of Beethoven's Fidelio.

In the summer of 2015, she made her Glyndebourne debut as Blonde in David McVicar's new production of Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio. The following season, she was again invited to Glyndebourne to sing the role of Barbarina and to cover the role of Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro. In her debut season, she was named the winner of the 50th John Christie Awards. Nikola Hillebrand also sang Blonde at the Bremen Music Festival under the musical direction of Jérémie Rhorer and in 2018 in a scenic production at the Mozart Week Salzburg under René Jacobs.

Nikola Hillebrand has been a member of the ensemble of the National Theater Mannheim since the 2016-2017 season and has sung roles such as Adele (Fledermaus), Oscar (Ballo in Maschera), Despina (Così fan tutte), Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), Poppea (Die Krönung der Poppea), Königin der Nacht (Die Zauberflöte) and Gilda (Rigoletto).

In 2017 she made her debut at the Bavarian State Opera Munich in the role of Azema in Rossini’s Semiramide. In December 2018 she could be heard as Adele in Johann Strauß’ Die Fledermaus alongside Jonas Kaufmann and under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst – a production that was broadcast worldwide.

In 2019 she was awarded the first prize of the International Song Competition “Das Lied” which takes place every two years within the Heidelberger Frühling.

Upcoming Highlights for the 2019/2020 season include Sophie in Strauss’ Rosenkavalier at the Semperoper Dresden as well as Konstanze in Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio in Mannheim. Furthermore, she will make her debut at the Musikverein in Vienna with Beethoven’s C-Major Mass together with Concentus Musicus Wien and Stefan Gottfried conducting.
