Marina Viotti was born in Switzerland and grew up in France. Her parents were both musicians, and this aroused her musical curiosity from an early age. This is why she not only studied classical music in Vienna and Lausanne, but also explored jazz, metal and chanson. In 2019, she won the "Best Young Singer" award at the renowned International Opera Award.

Her repertoire includes roles such as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Isabella in L'italiana in Algeri, Melibea in Il Viaggio a Reims, Elisabetta in Maria Stuarda (Donizetti), Adalgisa in Bellini's Norma, Dorabella in Così fan tutte or Olga in Eugene Onegin, to name a few. She performs on important stages such as the Staatsoper in Munich, the Semperoper in Dresden, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Liceu in Barcelona, the Opera in Valencia, the Opéra National du Rhin, the Theatre of Lucerne, the Opera in Zurich, the Opéra de Lausanne or the Arena di Verona in 2020 (Gala Rossini).

In 2020-21, despite the difficulties of the Covid-19 pandemic, Marina Viotti was able to make her debut at the Bilbao Opera in Il Turco in Italia, in the overwhelming double role of Muse/Niklausse (Les Contes d'Hoffmann) at the Liceu in Barcelona, in the role of Rosina (Il Barbiere di Siviglia) at the Bolshoi in Moscow and her debut as Bradamante (Alcina) in Strasbourg.

The 2021-22 season will see her return to La Scala in Rigoletto and Der Rosenkavalier and to the Opéra de Lausanne as Bradamante.

Marina Viotti is a passionate concert and recital singer, working with renowned conductors and orchestras. She likes to create her own programmes, such as her recital Love has no borders, with which she has toured Switzerland, Brazil and Japan.
