Tilling was born and brought up in Linköping, where she sang gospel and jazz music at school and in her church choir. She studied at the University of Gothenburg and then at the Royal College of Music, graduating in 1998. Her international opera career was launched the following year with her acclimed performances as Corinna (Il viaggio a Reims) at New York City Opera. Over the past decade she has performed extensively on both sides of the Atlantic, and has collaborated with major conductors including Bychkov, Andrew Davis, Pappano and Rattle. Her operatic repertory includes many Mozart roles, Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), Mélisande (Pelléas et Mélisande), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Donna Clara (Der Zwerg) and the Angel (Saint François d’Assise).

In addition to her operatic engagements, Tilling often performs in concert, recent engagements including Mahler’s Symphony no.2 at the Carnegie Hall and several performances of Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem. She has recorded songs by Schubert and Strauss, and appeared on DVD, including as Ilia (Idomeneo) at La Scala, Milan.
