Golda Schultz

Cape Town-born soprano Golda Schultz says she never dreamt of the remarkable things she's accomplished in her opera career so far.

Schultz has performed in productions and opera houses across the world, including The Met Opera in New York and and La Scala Opera House in Milan.

The South African opera sensation says one of her greatest career highlights is performing at the Salzburg Festival in Austria in 2015.

Most recently, she has starred as Clara in the Met’s production of “Porgy and Bess" - a thrilling experience which she says was a true privilege to be a part of.

Schultz is visiting her family in Cape Town but she's based in Munich, Germany where the quality of singers and musical directors is unmatched.

She describes to Pippa Hudson the surprising journey that has moulded her into the artist that she is today.

I was desperate to do anything creative along with my journlaism degree.

A lot of the things that I have achieved, I don't really think I dreamed were possible. I didn't actually know that they were dreams that I wanted.
