  • American mezzo soprano Ronnita Miller continues her upward career trajectory in Season 2016-17 in her fourth season as a member of the permanent ensemble at Deutsche Oper Berlin; new roles this season include Ulrika Un Ballo in Maschera and Madelon Andrea Chenier as well as appearing in revival performances of some of the roles that have brought her the admiration of Berlin audiences such as Marthe Schwertlein Faust and her signature roles in Der Ring des Nibelungen, Erda and First Norn. She joins Semperoper Dresden as Erda under the baton of Christian Thieleman. Guest appearances elsewhere include the role of Armando Le Grand Macabre under the baton of Simon Rattle with both the London Symphony Orchestra and the Berlin Philharmonic, as well as Verdi’s Requiem at Opernhaus Hannover.

    Miss Miller joined the ensemble at the Deutsche Oper Berlin for the 2013-14 Season and made her house debut with the roles of Grimgerde Die Walküre and First Norn Gotterdämmerung; other roles there since have included Anna Les Troyens, Dryade Ariadne auf Naxos, Bianca The Rape of Lucretia, Alice Lucia di Lammermoor, Filipevna Eugene Onegin, Wowkle La Fanciulla del West, Geneviève Pelléas et Mélisande, Mama Lucia Cavalleria Rusticana, Marcellina Le Nozze di Figaro, Third Lady Die Zauberflöte, Fenena Nabucco, and Maddalena/Giovanna Rigoletto.

    Recent career highlights include her role debut as Fricka Die Walküre with the Odense Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Alexander Vedernikov; Mary Der Fliegende Höllander at Ravinia Festival, a role she previously sang at Los Angeles Opera, and her debut as Mistress Quickly in Los Angeles Opera’s Falstaff.  She sang at Cincinnati’s May Festival in Mahler’s Eighth Symphony and in a special anniversary performance of Nathaniel Dett’s The Ordering of Moses under the baton of James Conlon which was also presented at New York’s Carnegie Hall in a live broadcast performance.

    A Florida native, Ronnita Miller received her Masters of Music from the Manhattan School of Music, and graduated from the prestigious Juilliard Opera School before spending two years in the Domingo-Thornton Young Artist Program at Los Angeles Opera.  She made her company debut as La Badessa Suor Angelica in 2008 before joining the cast of Joachim Freyer’s controversial production of Der Ring des Nibelungen in the roles of Schwertleite and Flosshilde while additionally covering Erda.  She won further acclaim during her tenure in the program on the main stage in roles of Berta Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Marcellina

    Future appearances include the artist’s return to San Francisco Opera in revival performances of Zambello’s Ring.

    • Le Grand Macabre
      Barbican, London January 2017

      ...the scintillating Elizabeth Watts and Ronnita Miller duetted sensuously as the love couple, Amanda and Amando.
      Financial Times, 18 January 2017
      The cast is admirable, with accomplished standouts from Peter Hoare’s Piet the Pot, Ronnita Miller’s vocally luscious Amando…
      The Stage, 17 January 2017
      …Ronnita Miller and Elizabeth Watts clung and clutched musically at one another in a sequence of X-rated duets…
      The Independent, 16 January 2017
      Vocal beauty was turned on when needed: notable were Ronnita Miller and Elizabeth Watts as Amando and Amanda…
      Bachtrack, 16 January 2017
      Ronnita Miller and Elizabeth Watts were superb lovers (Miller singing the role as a woman and not en travestie), and went a long way to putting the sex back into their relationship by musical means, giving us some really seductive singing. They made this difficult music sound luxuriously easy.
      Planet Hugill, 16 January 2017
      The mezzo-soprano Ronnita Miller and the soprano Elizabeth Watts were seated primly in white lab coats and dowdy court shoes, unable to lay a hand on each other although their voices entwined lusciously.
      Opera, March 2017
    • Eugene Onegin, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      December 2016

      In the role of governess, the mezzo Ronnita Miller impressed with her supple and generous voice. There is no doubt that the biggest roles for her fach are still to come.
      Opera Online, Laurent Vilarem, 16 December 2016
    • Un ballo in maschera, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      November 2016

      One of the other vocal joys of this opera comes with the low, low depths of mezzo Ronitta Miller. Verdi’s gloomy sorceress is not made of flighty wisps, but is rather rooted in earth. Her voice is therefore required to be mesmerically deep, and Miller delivered bewitching results.
      Bachtrack, Stephen Crowe, 22 November
      More alto then mezzo, Ronnita Miller impresses with her lower register...
      Forum Opera, Jean Michel Pennetier, 19 November
    • Das Rheingold, Semperoper Dresden
      October 2016

      Ronnita Miller's short appearance as Erda created great anticipation for her return later in the saga., Vincent Guillemin 15 October 2016
      Ronnita Miller did well in the part of Erda.
      Beckmesser, José M. Irurzun 15 October, 2016
    • Deutsche Oper Berlin, Die ägyptische Helena
      April 2016

      Yet again, Ronnita Miller's versatile alto is sensational in the role of alleswissende Muschel.
      Oper Aktuell, Kaspar Sannemann, 1 April
      ...Ronnita Miller excelled. Hers is a rich, deep mezzo voice.
      Seen and Heard International, Mark Berry, 10 April
    • Cavalleria Rusticana, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      September 2015

      In the supporting roles mezzo-soprano … Ronnita Miller [took the eye] as Mamma Lucia; such a natural actress.
      Michael Cookson, Seen and Heard International, 16 September 2015
    • Pelléas et Mélisande, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      September 2015

      Making her mark as Geneviève was mezzo-soprano Ronnita Miller in quite splendid voice.
      Michael Cookson, Seen and Heard International, 12 September 2015
    • The Flying Dutchman, Ravinia Festival
      August 2015

      Mezzo-soprano Ronnita Miller, also very good, completed a winning ensemble as Senta's nurse, Mary.
      John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, 16 August 2015
      Also effective in their smaller roles were ... Ronnitta Miller as Mary... Miller’s Mary breathed haughty disapproval at the frivolousness of the female chorus.
      John Y. Lawrence, Chicago Classical Review, 16 August 2015
    • Faust, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      June 2015

      Ronnita Miller almost stops the show in the minor part of Marthe; she has a generous voice and knows how to make the most of it.
      Shirley Apthorp, Financial Times
      Ronnita Miller as Marthe Schwertlein is in every way stunning and forceful, and the only (self-) ironic silver lining of the evening.
      Frederik Hanssen, Tagespiegel
      Ronnita Miller looked and sounded majestic in the mezzo role, surely the plum of all the vocal sections in Berlioz’s trans-genre work.
      Carlos Maria Solare, Opera August 2015
      Ronnita Miller was sexily amusing as the ‚over-ripe‘ (Méphistophélès’s words, not mine!) Marthe.
      Carlos Maria Solare, Opera Magazine November 2015
    • Romeo et Juliette, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      April 2015

      Miller sang with a plummy richness, her ample voice filling the house. One wishes that Berlioz had seen fit to write more music for the mezzo, as Miller was worth the evening alone.
      Christie Franke, Bachtrack
    • La fanciulla del West, Deutsche Oper Berlin
      March 2015

      Honorable mentions also go to Ronnita Miller for her stentorian Wowkle; Miller is wasted in the role; her voice big enough to be heard down the street and she brings enormous presence to the stage.
      Christie Franke, Bachtrack
    • Salome, Deutsche Oper Berlin at the BBC Proms
      August 2014

      The smaller roles were well done, especially Ronnita Miller’s rich-sounding Page.
      Erica Jeal, The Guardian
      ... supported by the Page of Ronita Miller, who impressed with her poise in this small but important role.
      Robert Hugill, Opera Today
      ... with Ronnita Miller touchingly supportive as Herodias’s Page ...
      Richard Whitehouse, Classical Source
      ... a major presence in a smaller role, Ronnita Miller as the "Page"...
      David Nice,
      And what an ear-catching voice with dusky low notes from Ronnita Miller as Herodias’s Page.
      Edward Seckerson
    • Falstaff, Los Angeles Opera
      November 2013

      Ronnita Nicole Miller, however, is the model. She does not overdo the comedy of Mistress Quickly and instead lets her increasingly impressive creamy mezzo do it for her. Having come up through the ranks of L.A. Opera, she gets better with each appearance.
      Mark Swed, LA Times
      LA Opera’s own Ronnita Nicole Miller as Mistress Quickly was a knockout as her character deftly led Falstaff into a plot to expose his lies.
      Georja Umano, LASplash
      Florida mezzo Ronnita Nicole Miller scored yet another success as Dame Quickly.

    • La Cenerentola, Los Angeles Opera
      March 2013

      As portrayed by Stacey Tappan and Ronnita Nicole Miller, the stepsisters, Clorinda and Tisbe, were an adorable duo. From the moment they appear in their overstuffed underwear and bright wigs, through every resonant note sung, they inhabited their characters with divine silliness. Soprano Tappan, vocalized with agile grace; and Miller, recently heard as the Nurse in LAO’s Flying Dutchman, has a powerful and versatile voice, singing both bel canto and Wagnerian roles successfully.
      Jane Rosenberg, Seen and Heard International
      The two stepdaughters are played to appropriate extremes by soprano Stacey Tappan and mezzo Ronnita Nicole Miller. Both offer crisp musicality even as they romp.

    • Der Fliegende Hollander, Los Angeles Opera
      March 2013

      Très bonnes prestations de Matthew Plenk (le pilote) et de Ronnita Nicole Miller (la nourrice).
      Hervé Le Mansec, ResMusica
      Ronnita Nicole Miller’s portrayal of Mary, Senta’s nurse, was beautifully sung and well acted.
      Jane Rosenberg, Seen and Heard International
      Ronnita Nicole Miller and Matthew Plenk sang gracefully as Mary and the Steersman.
    • Albert Herring, Los Angeles Opera
      February 2012

      Ronnita Nicole Miller’s droll Florence comes close to stealing the show.
      Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
      Curran gets involved and well-timed performances from many in the cast including Ronnia Nicole Miller as Florence Pike.
      Brian, Out West Arts
      All cast members are exceptional including […] the housekeeper (Ronnita Nicole Miller’s Florence Pike).
      Christie Grimstad, ConcertoNet
      Those surrounding him (Alek Shrader), pillars of the community all, made striking figures: Ronnita Nicole Miller, she of the velvety mezzo as housekeeper Florence Pike.

    • Romeo et Juliette, Los Angeles Opera
      November 2011

      Ronnita Nicole Miller’s soft and conservatively comforting voice makes a wonderful Gertrude.
      Christie Grimstad, ConcertoNet
      Ronnita Nicole Miller was Juliet’s resounding nurse.
      Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
      Mezzo-soprano Ronnita Nicole Miller (the Nurse) displayed a rare richness and depth of tone.

    • Eugene Onegin, Los Angeles Opera
      September 2011

      And speaking of local favorites, how about the great Ronnita Nicole Miller who turns in another wonderful performance here as Filipievna.
      Brian, Out West Arts
      Ronnita Nicole Miller -- a young American singer with a rich mezzo who has done several small roles with the company -- as Filipievna, Tatiana’s nurse.
      Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
      Ronnita Nicole Miller’s Filipievna personifies comfort, peace and stability which is pleasingly supported by her smoky and nurturing mezzo voice.

      The mezzo-soprano Ronnita Miller brought a rich voice and noble phrasing to the role of the fateful earth goddess, Erda.
      Anthony Tommasini, New York Times
      On the female side, Ronnita Miller was an impressively earthy Erda.
      Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times
      Ronnita Miller is radiant as Erda.
