Born Arbroath.

Scottish mezzo-soprano.

Karen Cargill studied at the RSAMD in Glasgow, then at the University of Toronto and the National Opera School in London, where she was joint winner of the 2002 Kathleen Ferrier award.

She quickly built up a thriving international concert career in Britain, France, Germany, Denmark and Canada. Her operatic parts range from Mozart and Rossini (Rosina and Isabella) with Scottish Opera to Waltraute in Götterdämmerung, the role of her New York Met debut in 2012. This was quickly followed by a re-engagement as Anna in Les Troyens (2013), then Magdalene in Die Meistersinger to open the 2014/15 season.
