British soprano Robyn Allegra Parton made her Royal Opera debut in 2015 as Peg (The Virtues of Things, world premiere) in the Linbury Studio Theatre. She has since returned to the main stage to sing Barbarina (Le nozze di Figaro).

Parton read music at Oxford University and studied singing at the Royal College of Music and English National Opera’s Opera Works. Role creations include Agnes (Nothing by David Bruce) for Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Narrator (The Sea-Crossed Fisherman by Michael Ellison) for the Istanbul Music Festival. Other roles include Clelia (Octavia by Reinhard Keiser) for the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, Morgana (Alcina) for Ryedale Festival Opera, Mercédès (Carmen) for the Grand Théatre du Luxembourg, and soloist in Monteverdi's L’Orfeo for Bavarian State Opera.

Parton has sung in concert with orchestras including the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the Leipzig Gwandhaus Orchester, and appears regularly throughout the UK in recital. Her awards include the Helen Clarke Award for Garsington Opera and the Oxford Lieder Festival Prize, and she was a finalist in the Kathleen Ferrier Awards.
