Soprano Amina Edris has been hailed as a “revelation” (Forum Opera) and praised for her “lustrous” tone (Opera News). Born in Egypt and raised in New Zealand, she has blended her cultural background to create her own unique artistic identity, performing a variety of roles ranging from baroque music to world premieres with a focus on French repertoire. Recent career highlights include Manon and Juliette at the Opéra National de Paris, Cleopatra in the world premiere of John Adams’ Antony and Cleopatra at San Francisco Opera, and Alice in the acclaimed recording of Meyerbeer’s Robert le Diable.

Amina’s 2023/24 season includes five role debuts and several house debuts. She begins her season with a return to the Canadian Opera Company where she debuts the role of Mimi in La Bohème. She continues with three more role debuts: Liu in Turandot at Teatro di San Carlo, and the title role of Thaïs at Opéra de Toulon, and Beatriz in The Exterminating Angel by Thomas Adès at Opéra National de Paris. In the spring, she embarks on a recital tour of North America alongside tenor Pene Pati and pianist Robert Mollicone, and on the concert stage, she performs Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 for the first time with the Philharmonie Luxembourg. She concludes her season with a final role and house debut, as Caroline (Rosalinde) in Die Fledermaus at Opéra de Lille, performed in French.
