Mathilda Bryngelsson biography

Mathilda Bryngelsson, a lyric mezzo-soprano, is a Swedish opera singer who was born and raised in Gothenburg, Sweden. Growing up, she played the flute, but in her early 20s, she discovered her love of singing opera.


Mathilda received her bachelor's degree in opera performance at the University College of Opera in Stockholm in 2019. Currently, she is a young artist at Malmö Opera Academy - a master’s program/young artist program at Malmö Opera and Malmö Academy of Music.


In 2019, Mathilda appeared as Medoro in a new adaptation of Handel's Orlando with Stockholm Royal Opera/Young at the Opera at Confidencen in Stockholm. In the same year, she also played Mercedes in Carmen with the Lyric Society of Gävleborg in Gävle, Sweden. Mathilda has also performed roles such as Cherubino and Marcellina in Le nozze di Figaro, La Frugola in Il tabarro, and Konchakovna in Prince Igor. 


Apart from the operatic repertoire, Mathilda also has a thorough experience as an oratorio soloist, with performances of repertoire ranging from Mozart's Requiem to the more unusual Luther in Worms by Meinardus. In 2019, she sang the alto soloist part in Mendelssohn's Elias in der Berliner Philharmonie KMS with Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt. 


Mathilda was one of the price winners of Schloss Rheinsberg Internationaler Gesangswettbewerb 2020, but unfortunately, her participation in the summer festival was canceled due to Covid-19 in both 2020 and 2021.


During the season of 21/22, Mathilda will be part of several productions at Malmö Opera, both on the main stage and on tour.
