Golda Schultz


South African soprano Golda Schultz is internationally hailed as one of today’s most talented and versatile artists, as at home in leading operatic roles as she is as featured soloist with the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors. Unanimously praised for her ​warmth of tone and sensitivity of phrasing”, Schultz trained at New York’s Juilliard School and Bayerische Staatsoper’s Opernstudio and found immediate success on both sides of the Atlantic through early operatic appearances like Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier) at Salzburger Festspiele, Contessa Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) at the Metropolitan Opera and Wiener Staatsoper.

Operatic highlights of past seasons include Micaëla (Carmen) at Opéra National de Paris and Lyric Opera of Chicago, Contessa and Liù at Wiener Staatsoper, Agathe (Der Freischütz) at Bayerische Staatsoper, Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito) at Salzburger Festspiele, Clara in Jake Heggie’s It’s A Wonderful Life at San Francisco Opera, Madame Lidoine in Barrie Kosky’s highly acclaimed staging of Dialogues des Carmélites at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and, returning each season since her debut in 2017/18, Clara (Porgy and Bess), Nanetta (Falstaff), Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), Contessa (Le Nozze di Figaro), Anne Trulove (The Rake’s Progress) and Adina (L’elisir d’amore) at the Metropolitan Opera.
