• Biography


    Called “Spellbinding” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Greek-American soprano Jamie Chamberlin has been recognized for her abilities as a singer and actress.

    Recently, ArtsInLA hailed her Cunegonde in Long Beach Opera’s "Candide" as “Jaw-dropping.” Highlights of the 17-18 season include Hazel George in the US Premiere of Philip Glass’s "The Perfect American" at LBO (she also makes her Chicago Opera Theater debut with the same production), a role debut as Lucia in "Lucia di Lammermoor" with Pacific Opera Project, and a return to LBO as the Foreign Woman in "The Consul" opposite Patricia Racette. Additionally she will sing Faustine in Stewart Copeland’s (of the rock band The Police) new opera "The Invention of Morel," and Isolde in Frank Martin’s "The Love Potion." Jamie also makes her Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra debut in spring of 2018, singing Mahler’s "Fourth Symphony" and Poulenc’s "Gloria," and in the summer, she can be heard at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as a featured soloist with The California Philharmonic.


    Most notably, Jamie garnered national attention when she starred as Marilyn Monroe in the US Premiere of Gavin Bryars’ "Marilyn Forever" at LBO, for which Opera News praised her “shimmering tones” and “star-struck vulnerability”. Other roles include Soprano II in Glass/Ginsberg’s "Hydrogen Jukebox," and Anne Sexton in Susa’s "Transformations" with San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Program.


    A champion of new music, Chamberlin’s world-premiere performances include the Soprano solo in Salonen’s "Wing on Wing," Elyn Saks in "The Center Cannot Hold" in collaboration with Pacific Opera Project/ UCLA, and Lisa in the Delos Recording of Mark Abel’s opera "Home is a Harbor."


    Chamberlin’s distinctive voice can also be heard on the Delos recording "Terrain of the Heart" for which Fanfare Magazine hailed her as “a powerful operatic presence”, and in the Coen Brother’s 2016 film, "Hail Caesar!," singing Offenbach’s Barcarolle during the epic water ballet scene.
