Artist Profile

Barbara King

From winning the Québec Provincial Gymnastics Championship on Floor to thrilling audiences with her “exquisite vocal command of a three octave range”, Canadian mezzo soprano Barbara King is no stranger to the stage and displayed her gymnastics and dance abilities as Olga and a Grisette with Edmonton Opera in their 2015 production of The Merry Widow.

In 2017, Ms. King sang the lead role of Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier with Opera by Request in Toronto, made her debut as a soloist with the Rocky Mountain Symphony Orchestra and was pleased to return to sing with Edmonton Opera in their production of Elektra as The Confidante and with Opera Kelowna in their Opera in the Park and Opera under the Stars summer concert series.

Ms. King has had the pleasure of singing with Calgary Opera, Edmonton Opera, Opera Kelowna, Opera Nuova, Tuscia Opera Festival in Viterbo, Italy, Mercury Opera, Opera by Request, Amalfi Coast Music Festival in Italy, Barrie’s Colours of Music Festival, Cowtown Opera and Calgary Concert Opera Company.
