Meet Olivia

American soprano Olivia Boen had an early start on the operatic stage when at the age of six, she appeared at the Lyric Opera of Chicago as one of the gingerbread chorus children in Hänsel und Gretel. In the 2022-23 season, she comes full circle as she makes her debut as Gretel at the Staatsoper Hamburg, where she will be joining the International Opera Studio. She will also be making role debuts as Musetta (La bohème), Barbarina (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Anna (Nabucco), among others.

This year, she has performed at the Barbican with both the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Schools Symphony Orchestra, with whom she sang first Four Last Songs. At Cadogan Hall this June, she will make her debut with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra singing Beethoven’s “Ah, Perfido!” with Sir Andrew Davis.
