"Sensational, with a rich, soaring voice and touching stage presence"
Warwick Thomson on Nadine's performance in The Ice Break with Birmingham Opera
"The cast was uniformly committed and excellent. Nadine Benjamin's warm and penetrating soprano allied to a very sympathetic stage persona made her an excellent Nadia. Her extended death-scene was a wonderfully sincere performance."
Alexander Campbell, The Classical Source, 7 April

Recently hailed by 'Opera Now' magazine as one of their favourite top ten sopranos in "a new generation of sopranos who are destined to have impressive careers", Nadine Benjamin is in increasing demand on both the operatic stage and the concert platform. A highly charismatic and versatile British artist, she is developing great renown as an exponent of song, in particular Strauss, Verdi and contemporary American song.
Nadine has sung at the Edinburgh International Festival, the Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Opera House (Paul Hamlyn Hall and Clore Studio) and with Opéra National de Lyon. She recently performed the principal role of Imoinda in the UK premiere of The Crossing (de la Martinez) and Nadia in Tippett's The Ice Break with Birmingham Opera Company, both to critical acclaim, and will sing Desdemona (Otello) with Everybody Can! Opera on 23 October at St. James's Church Piccadilly.
Much sought-after as a soloist in both the UK and abroad, Nadine made her US recital debut at the National Opera Center, New York in September with a programme of Verdi songs and arias, and repeated this recital to great acclaim in London in December 2014. Concert performances in 2015 have included Berg's Seven Early Songs with West London Sinfonia, Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne for Plymouth Symphony Orchestra and a Gala concert alongside pianist Melvyn Tan. She will give a free solo recital at St Paul's Church, Covent Garden on 17 December, accompanied by Brian Stanborough.
In addition to her work as a performer, Nadine is a Certified High Performance Mentor and in 2014 was appointed an Ambassador for London Music Masters, a charity that encourages opportunity, diversity and excellence in classical music.
Nadine is currently being coached at the National Opera Studio as part of their 'Singers of Tomorrow' programme.
