biography

“It was bound to happen, a star born... in the 21st century. Density, core, simplicity, character, mastery: remember this name,” Diapason  writes of soprano Libby Sokolowski. In the upcoming 2024-2025 season, she makes role debuts as Fata Morgana in Prokofiev's Die Liebe zu den drei Orangen, Lady Macbeth in Verdi's Macbeth, and the title role of Puccini's Tosca at the Theater St. Gallen. Since transitioning to the dramatic soprano repertoire, she has performed in St. Gallen to great acclaim as Elvira (Verdi: Ernani), Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus), Sieglinde (Die Walküre, “Der Ring an einem Abend”), and the soprano soloist in a scenic production of Verdi's Messa da Requiem, for which she was praised for her "full, broad, dramatic soprano".

In the summer of 2021, Ms. Sokolowski was invited to perform with the Tiroler Festspiele Erl in a Gala concert of opera arias and scenes with the Orchester der Tiroler Festspiele Erl, presenting operatic works by Tchaikovsky and Verdi. The same summer she was a participant of the Internationale Meistersinger Akademie in Germany where she performed scenes from Puccini's La rondine. Later in the 2021-2022 season, Ms. Sokolowski was invited to join the prestigious Académie de la voix at the Fondation des Treilles, exploring scenes from Donizetti's Anna Bolena and Verdi's Il corsaro with soprano Patrizia Ciofi. During her studies at The Juilliard School, Ms. Sokolowski performed in Lincoln Center’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater and Alice Tully Hall in leading roles of Handel’s Teseo, Handel's Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno with Juilliard415 led by William Christie, Nicolai's Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor, and in concert with the AXIOM ensemble in a performance of Stravinksy's Three Japanese Lyrics. She has been praised by outlets such as Opera News for her ​“rich, excellent instrument,” “considerable artistry,” “fine phrasing,” and “articulate, lyrical, and confident” singing. 

She completed her Bachelor studies at The Juilliard School where she was a full scholarship recipient under the generous support of the Kovner Foundation.

"​Libby Sokolowski succeeds brilliantly as Elvira. Her round, full soprano is able to develop the necessary fire for the lover and woman desired by three men. Her voice is huge, but without sounding like it directly."

“​In the leading roles, Christopher Sokolowski as Gabriel von Eisenstein and Libby Sokolowski as his wife Rosalinde von Eisenstein​ are convincing with their euphonious tone, playfulness, and clear understanding of the text.”
