Liudmyla Monastyrska was born in Ukraine and made her debut in Kiev in 1996 singing the role of Tatiana in Eugene Onegin. She made her first appearance in the West in 2010 at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin and at the Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago in the title role of Tosca. From then on, her career took on an international dimension. The lead role in Aida opened the doors to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, La Scala in Milan, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Houston Opera and the Hollywood Bowl (with Gustavo Dudamel). Since then, she has been invited back to London’s Royal Opera House Covent Garden (singing the roles of Lady Macbeth in Macbeth under the baton of Antonio Pappano; and Abigaille in Nabucco with Nicolà Luisotti). She has also made return appearances to La Scala in Milan (in Nabucco, and singing the role of Santuzza in Cavalleria rusticana), as well as to the Deutsche Oper in Berlin (in the role of Odabella in Attila). She has also sung with the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome and the Cleveland Orchestra (Verdi’s Requiem) and performed at Valencia’s Palau de les Arts (as Leonora in La Forza del Destino under the direction of Zubin Mehta), the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona (as Lucrezia in I due Foscari), at the Berlin Staatsoper (as Lady Macbeth), at the Salzburg Festival (as Santuzza). During the 2015 / 2016 season, she performed the title role of Tosca in Houston and at the Metropolitan Opera, Santuzza at the Metropolitan Opera, Abigaille at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, and she made her debut at the Vienna Staatsoper in Aida. Liudmyla Monastyrska appears on the DVDs of Macbeth and Nabucco recorded at the Royal Opera House (Opus Arte).
