Margot Rödin (Mezzo-soprano)

Born: March 12, 1935 - Stockholm, Sweden

The Swedish mezzo-soprano, Margot Rödin, was educated from 1956 to 1961 at the Music Academy Stockholm and in the Opera School of the Royal Opera by Ingeborg Berling, Ragnar Hultén, and later by the teachers Wilhelm Freund, Erik Werba und Gerald Moore.

Immediately after finishing her studies, Margot Rödin was invited by the Royal Opera Stockholm to sing her debut role as Mercedes in Carmen. Since 1962 she appeared almost annually at the Festivals of Drottningholm, particularly as GluckíOrpheus and as Clarice in Rossiniís Pietra del paragone. She has been highly estimated George Frideric Handel and Mozart interpreter (Bradamante in G.F. Handelís Alcina, Apollo in Il minister fido, Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro, Dorabella in Così fan tutte). In addition, she appeared successfully in roles such as Mrs. Herring in Brittenís Albert Herring, Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream by the same composer, Meg Page in Verdiís Falstaff, Rosina in The Barbier of Sevilla, Olga in Eugen Onegin, Octavian in Rosenkavalier, and the title heroine in Drömmen om Thérèse by Werle.

Margot Rödin was also a great Lieder interpreter. She appeared successfully in the Scandinavian capitals, and in 1968 in London. In the area of the oratorio, she made a name for herself as a Bach singer.

Among her recordings: HMV Swedish Society Discofil (Barfotasången by A. Petterson).
