Soprano Lydia  Dahling is establishing herself as an engaging performer. This spring, she made two role debuts, Pamina in The Magic Flute with Columbia Bach Society and the Voice in Don Carlo with Vocal Productions NYC. Called "sweet voiced" by Opera News, her other roles include Lisette in La Rondine and the title roles of L'incoronazione di Poppea and Alcina.

In addition to opera, Dahling has also participated in world premiers by works of several emerging composers. In 2014, she debuted with the NYC new music consortium Tenth Intervention. She also serves as Vocal Coach with the Columbia Bach Society.

Dahling earned her Bachelor of Music from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and her Master of Music from Mannes College The New School for Music. A native of Indiana, she resides in New York City.
