Karita Mattila

Karita Mattila


The lyric beauty of her singing and innate sense of theatre have set Karita Mattila apart as one of the most sought-after dramatic sopranos in the world today.

In demand by every major opera house and festival, Mattila performs with the world’s greatest conductors, including James Levine; Colin Davis; Christoph von Dohnányi; Bernard Haitink; Antonio Pappano; Simon Rattle and Esa-Pekka Salonen. She has also enjoyed outstanding collaborations with major stage directors: Luc Bondy in his highly acclaimed Don Carlos, which she performed in Paris, London and at the Edinburgh International Festival; Lev Dodin in his productions of Elektra for the Salzburg Easter Festival and Pique Dame and Salome at Opéra national de Paris; Peter Stein for his Simon Boccanegra in Salzburg and Don Giovanni in Chicago; and Jürgen Flimm for his Fidelio at the Metropolitan Opera.

Other critically acclaimed roles include Kostelnička (Jenůfa) with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and with San Francisco Opera under Jiří Bĕlohlávek; Sieglinde (Die Walküre) for Houston Grand Opera; Marie (Wozzeck) and the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos for the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and Emilia Marty in Janáček’s Věc Makropulos for the Metropolitan Opera, the Finnish National Opera and at the BBC Proms.
