The sensational Finnish soprano Soile Isokoski has sung at all the leading opera houses in Europe, including the Vienna State Opera, La Scala (Milan), and the Deutsche Oper Berlin. She made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera as the Countess in The Marriage of Figaro in 2002. On that occasion, the critic of the New York Times wrote, “Ms. Isokoski ... touched on the Countess’ sense of abandonment by the Count without diminishing her regal bearing or the graceful humour she must contribute to the second act.”

Soile Isokoski studied at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and made her stage debut with Finnish National Opera. She has gone on to capture audiences and critics alike across the world, winning the coveted Pro-Finlandia medal in 2002 in honour of her notable contribution to Finnish music. Her Festival recital showcases her artistry in music by some of the greatest of all composers of classical songs – including, of course, Finland’s supreme musical genius, Jean Sibelius.
