Kimberly Robinson made her operatic debut as Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto in 2004 with Intimate Opera Chicago. After receiving her Graduate Diploma in Voice from the Royal College of Music (London), she went on to perform a variety of roles around Great Britain, including Musetta in La Bohème, Susanna in La Nozze di Figaro, Violetta in La Traviata, Cio Cio San in Madama Butterfly, the Wicked Witch in Hansel and Gretel and the Queen of the Night inThe Magic Flute. She provided the voice of Lady MacBeth at the British premier of N-Opera MacBeth by Akiko Asai at the Britten Theatre in London.

In Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2009 she originated the role of Margaret Scott in a special musical preview of the new opera, Salem 1692 by Previn Hudetz. She was also a weekly performer at Opera Open Mic Night. She added the role of Gretel from Hansel and Gretel, performing with Opera Unlimited (a non-profit opera outreach program for elementary schools across New Mexico).

Kimberly most recently toured the Caribbean and Scandinavia as a headline act for MSC Cruises.
