Fiordiligi in Cosí fan tutte
"Soprano Sanna Gibbs' guilt-ridden Fiordiligi pours buckets of water over herself without trembling on a single note."
- Dagens Nyheter
"...Sanna Gibbs sings Konstanzes' three great arias with passion and admirable coloraturas, while her high notes fills the acoustics of the theater.."
Borås Tidning, Helen Flensburg
The Swedish soprano, Sanna Gibbs, studied at the Stockholm Operastudio 67 and the Musical Theater Program at Kulturama after which she completed her studies at the University College of Opera in Stockholm.

Blumenmädchen in Christoph Loy’s production of Wagner’s Parsifal at the Royal Swedish Opera, where she was re-engaged for two world premiere operas, performing the roles of Lucy in Borisova-Ollas’ Dracula, as well as
Ilon in The Long Long Journey by J. Ramström.

At Malmö Opera she sang Juliette in Roméo et Juliette on a national tour in a collaboration between the Malmö Opera and the Swedish National Touring Theater.
“Sanna Gibbs, a rising star”
- Financial Times, Guy Dammann
"I would like to particularly highlight the soprano Sanna Gibbs (Cyane) and the tenor Wiktor Sundqvist (Atis). There are no blind spots in their acting. With such singers, who do not open for applause until the very end...
...the applause is all the longer – and louder."
- Expressen, Gunilla Brodrej
She has also appeared as Konstanze in Die Entfhürung aus dem Serail, Jenny in The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny at Norrlandsoperan, Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Läckö Castle and as Papagena and First Lady in Die Zauberflöte at Confidancen as well as Cyane in Proserpin.
She has sung at Stockholms Konserthus with the Stockholm Symphony Orchestra and performed with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra and Norrlandsoperans Symphony Orchestra.
Ms Gibbs is the recipient of the Barbro Salén Scholarship in 2014; the Anders Wall Scholarship in 2013; the Joel Berglund Scholarship in 2012; the Sigrid Paskell Scholarship also in 2012 as well as several scholarships from the Swedish Royal Academy of Music.
