Tuuli Takala is a soprano from Helsinki, Finland, celebrated for her ‘luscious voice’ (HBL), ‘captivating stage presence’ (Helsingin Sanomat) and her ‘rich timbre and brilliant coloratura singing’ (Opernwelt Magazine). Since 2015 she has been a member of the ensemble at the renowned Semperoper in Dresden, Germany, but she is also a frequent visitor to many international opera stages around the world.
As Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto:
“ The centre of this production is the father-daughter relationship of Rigoletto and Gilda. Every scene between [Rigoletto’s performer] and Tuuli Takala was dramatically engaging and musically captivating. Takala had the edge as Gilda; with purity of tone, dove-white in colour, a strong higher register with lovely high notes and a splendid sense of line, she dominated the evening. Dramatically she was convincing, conveying Gilda’s virginal naivety, her sense of shame and her desperate love. Keep a watchful eye: Takala is a singer worth travelling to see. “

As Marguerite in C. Gounod’s Faust:
“ The singers were mostly masters of their parts. … But the opera often, as here, belongs to Marguerite, and that role was in the excellent hands of Tuuli Takala. Both her ballad of the King of Thule and the ensuing Jewel Song were highlights of the evening, as they are of the score. Her acting covered the range from innocent girl to woman in love and finally terrified penitent. The evening belonged to her. “
