Ruut Karhula

The two talented young singers, Sanna Iljin and Ruut Karhula, both study at the Helsinki Conservatory, with which we have the privilege to collaborate. Sanna is fresh from winning second prize at the prestigious Timo Mustakallio singing competition, and Ruut has just completed her studies at Lahti University of Applied Sciences. Both are also dedicated pianists and Sanna studies in Erik T. Tawaststjerna’s class at the Sibelius Academy. In L’incoronazione, the pair play the valet (Sanna) and the servant girl (Ruut), a frisky teenage couple discovering the meaning of love, and their sensual duet provides a lighter interlude in the middle of the opera. #poppeankruunaus #orpheusmuses #baroqueopera#lincoronazionedipoppea #youngtalents
