„Nikola Hillebrand als Königin der Nacht
und René Pape als Sarastro waren mit
ihren beeindruckenden Arien die stimmliche
Klammer des Abends und wurden den
hochgesteckten Erwartungen gerecht. ”
Sächsische Zeitung, Jenn Daniel Schubert
The German soprano Nikola Hillebrand is praised for her bright, shining voice with a noble timbre, her lightness and sophisticated technique, and her heart-touching, charming presentation and her nuanced design.
Still at the beginning of her career, she has already sung at many leading opera and concert halls including Bavarian State Opera, the Glyndebourne Festival and the Wiener Musikverein.
Im Herbst 2020 wird Nikola als Solistin dem Ensemble der Semperoper Dresden beitreten und hier in den großen Partien ihres Fachs wie Königin der Nacht (Die Zauberflöte), Konstanze (Entführung aus dem Serail), Gilda (Rigoletto) und Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel) zu erleben sein.
Nikola is a passionate lieder singer. She is the winner of the international song competition “Das Lied 2019” in Heidelberg (jury chairman Thomas Quasthoff) and will make her debut at Wigmore Hall in London in February 2021. There will be a crossover between song and opera in February when Nikola makes her debut alongside baritone Florian Bösch at the Theater an der Wien with the music theater “Himmelerde”.
On her way to date, Nikola has worked with conductors such as René Jacobs, Robin Ticchiati, Jérémie Rhorer, Franz Welster-Möst, Alexander Soddy, Manfred Honeck and Stephan Gottfried. As a soloist in Beethoven's C major Mass, she will be heard again after her debut at the Musikverein with this work and the Concentus Musicus in Paris. Last year she could also be heard as a concert singer in the Brucknerhaus in Linz, the Casino in Bern and in Berlin. Previous concert tours have taken her to the Laeizshalle in Hamburg, to the Mozart Week in Salzburg, the Music Festival in Bremen as well as to South Korea, Egypt and Oman, among others.
After concluding her studies in Munich, Nikola joined the ensemble of Nationaltheater Mannheim (2016-2019). She went on to performroles such as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), Despina (Così fan tutte), Gilda (Rigoletto), Norina (Don Pasquale) and Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute) on stage. She celebrated a great success with her interpretation of the title role in Monteverdi's L'Incoronazione di Poppea.
