“Nina Kopparhed [was] wonderful…Brilliantly acted” Sally Knipe, Londontheatre1.com, about TimeZone Theatre’s “A Night in Vienna” May 2017 (2017)

There was a magical clarity of interwoven lines, supporting and commenting upon your beautifully nuanced and well-characterized singing. This was an ensemble that clearly loved the music, enjoyed playing together and captured the audience under its spell. The quality of the music-making was compelling as we became increasingly aware of fusion of subtly changing colours and dynamics of independent parts. And on top of this was your gift of using voice, facial expression and discreet body language to convey the changing emotions and moods the songs demanded. The music came alive and I, for one, heard them in a new light. I have never heard a better performance of the Shepherd on the Rock, live or on disc. ...I have had exceptional feedback from members of last night’s audience, all of them overwhelmed by the friendly and informative atmosphere created, and the wonderful music they heard."

Originally from Sweden, Nina moved to the UK to study at the Birmingham Conservatoire as a viola player. After graduating, Nina spent years building up a successful freelance career, but, after getting her first opportunity to sing as a soprano soloist whilst working with an orchestra in Brazil, Nina changed direction. On her return in 2008, she started having singing lessons with the international soprano Judith Howarth and made her UK debut as a soprano soloist in 2011.

Nina is now working as an opera singer, oratorio soloist and recitalist and has performed in the UK, Sweden, Italy, Brazil, Bolivia as well on board the cruise ship Saga Sapphire on a cruise down the coast of Africa.

Operatic role highlights include Zerbinetta, the Governess, Miss Wordsworth, Vitellia, Lucia (I due Timidi), Olympia and Die Königin der Nacht.

Upcoming non-operatic work ranges from: appearing as a soloist for a concert of music by Handel and Telemann with the Telemann Ensemble in Glasgow, to giving the premiere of Anthony Esland’s song cycle "The Amherst Chronicles", at the Harrow Summer music festival 2019.
