“…delicioso” (Delicious) – Diario de Jerez (2017)

“Robin brings everything to the stage, from her sweet and elegant voice to her versatile acting. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Robin’s repertoire can be technically demanding, because she makes it look so easy—especially when her character is so engaging.” – Living Myth Magazine (2017)

“…a rewarding performance, dramatically aware and meticulously sung… sure-fire accuracy… dazzling.” – Review Vancouver (2016)

"[Hahn] is the stand-out performer… She is the type of singer whose lovely soaring soprano notes elevate all others around her…” – Review Vancouver (2014)

“…Nothing short of stunning. [Her] voice cascades over the rest of the ensemble adding a layer of technical brilliance that is a pleasure to hear.” – Vancouver Presents (2014)

“...a talent beyond words. On many occasions, listening to her voice made the hair on my arms stand on end.” – lifeintheburbs.ca (2013)

“…stole the show.” - The Langara Voice (2013)

“Priceless as Norina... handling the transition from nunnery novice to wanton flirt not only in her acting, but also in her well-nuanced vocal skills.” – Opera Canada Magazine (2013)

“Robin... was superb. Her coloratura was effortless... I waited for ‘Glitter and be Gay’ and just relaxed into her excellent performance of it (And in my head was Barbara Cook!)” – Hilary Clark, reviewer writing for Opera Canada Magazine (2013)

Praised for her effortless technique, rich vocal tone and compelling stage presence, young Canadian soprano Robin Hahn performs actively around the world, from Germany to New York to Disneyland and all across Canada, and is rapidly garnering attention as a talent to watch on the operatic stage. Recent Canadian appearances have been hailed as “nothing short of stunning” (Vancouver Presents) and “dramatically aware and meticulously sung” (Review Vancouver). Recent appearances include a set of concerts alongside renowned soprano Janice Baird in Sanlùcar, Spain this season, with the final program broadcast in its entirety on Spanish television; a live performance singing on the Grande Canal in Venice as part of the filming of David Rocco's La Dolce Vita; and an appearance singing in When I Am Old / When I Get Young with the English Theatre Berlin.

From 2012 to 2017, Robin was a roster artist with Vancouver’s Opera Mariposa. Roles with them include mainstage turns as Norina in Donizetti’s Don Pasquale, Lucy in Menotti’s The Telephone, and Mlle Silberklang in Der Schauspieldirektor, as well as covers of Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica and Serpina in La serva padrona. She has also starred in the world premiere of the musical revue The Butterfly with Mariposa’s theatre wing, stepped in last-minute for an ill colleague as Maria Callas in their production of Terrence McNally’s Master Class, and sung scenes as Oscar in Un ballo in maschera under their banner. To date, Robin has appeared in over a hundred concerts, events and operas with the company.

In the 2016-2017 season, Robin was thrilled to perform all over her native Canada. In the fall and winter she appeared with Vancouver Island Opera as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, a favourite role, then joined Burnaby Lyric Opera to appear as Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel for the second time with the company. She finished the year with a national tour across Canada as a featured soloist in Enchanting China with the Chinese Broadcasting Chinese Orchestra, performing with acclaimed Royal Opera House tenor Xue Haoyin under the baton of maestro Peng Jiapeng. Other appearances that season included covers of the role of Olympia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann and an evening returning to the role of Despina in Così fan tutte. She also performed in two major gala concert events with Mariposa during that year, where reviewers proclaimed that Robin “brings everything to the stage, from her sweet and elegant voice to her versatile acting. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Robin’s repertoire can be technically demanding, because she makes it look so easy—especially when her character is so engaging” (Living Myth Magazine).

In 2015-2016, Robin was delighted to return to the role of Serpina in La serva padrona, covering it for West Coast Opera. She also made several exciting role debuts in the operetta and soprano musical theatre repertoire that season and the year before, from Valencienne in Die Lustige Witwe to Mrs. Nordstrom in Sondheim’s A Little Night Music and Meg March in Howland’s Little Women – a performance for which she won a CTC Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical in White Rock, Canada.

Robin’s other previous roles include from both the operatic and musical theatre repertoire include all three soprano roles in Gianni Schicchi (Lauretta, Nella, and La Ciesca), Cunegonde in Candide, Musetta in La bohème, Aninka in Brundibar, Annina in La traviata, Noemie (cover) in Cendrillon, Papagena and Pamina (cover) in Die Zauberflöte, Young Heidi in Sondheim’s Follies and Laurey Williams in Oklahoma!. Partial roles performed in both New York and Canada include Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte and Suor Genovieffa in Suor Angelica.

A committed singing actor since the age of ten, Robin has been appearing in theatre and film since her childhood. In recent years, she has played Ophelia in Eidola at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, a theatrical role in which she sang much of the character’s mad scene from Thomas’ Hamlet; appeared as Blastoff! Chorus in the Hilary Duff film What Goes Up; and appeared in the Canadian television show Alice, I Think as the German-speaking character Gretel.

Robin studied at the Marcel A. Deshautels Faculty of Music in Winnipeg, Canada, and is an alumna of the New York Opera Studio, the New England Vocal Studio, and the Lyric Opera Studio Weimar. She is thrilled to be a winner of the Metropolitan Opera competition’s Encouragement Award 2015.
