No one will have forgotten her sublime interpretation of Rusalka at the end of the 2012-2013 season. The press, too, were ebullient in their praise of the performance. Reviews included the likes of: “Camilla Nylund is a staggeringly good Rusalka, admirable in her sincerity and finesse.” Without doubt one of the greatest performers of the repertories of Wagner and Strauss, the Finnish soprano adores Lieder and excels in this domain, regretting that she has been unable to devote more of her time to the genre. We must be glad therefore that her extremely busy calendar allows her to appear in Geneva, where a feast for our eyes and ears is assured. Camilla Nylund performs for us melodies from her country, and Lieder by Mahler, not forgetting works by Wag- ner and Strauss in which she stands out like no other.
