Finnish opera singer Karita Mattila is one of the world’s premiere divas, having earned the title through consistent and solid work that astounds and mesmerizes audiences across the globe. Tall, athletic, and gifted with excellent vocal talent, she challenges herself both physically and intellectually with the roles she chooses. Able to sing in seven languages and to interpret a wide range of roles, Joshua Kosman of the San Francisco Chronicle praised her “stylistic elusiveness.” Bridget Paolucci noted in American Record Guide that “Mattila moves easily on stage, giving her performances a sense of naturalness and fluidity. As an actress, she not only understands the depth and complexity of the characters, but has the extraordinary ability to communicate what she understands.”
