Nadezhda Karyazina was born in Moscow in 1986, and from 2003 to 2008 was trained at the Russian Academy of the Theatrical Arts in Moscow, at the faculty of the musical theater.
After she graduated from the Academy she was admitted to the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Center, where among others she performed the roles of Laura in Tchaikovsky's Iolantha, Contessa di Ceprano in Verdi's Rigoletto, Dunyasha in Rimsky-Korsakov's The Tsar's Bride, Siebel in Gounod's Faust and Olga in Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin.
Prizes Nadezhda has won include a Diploma at the Russian Theatrical Competition 'Capital Renaissance' (2008), and she has given concerts in Italy, Germany, Poland and Russia.
Since 2010 she has been a member of the Young Artist Program of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia, where she has taken part in master-classes with Gloria Guida Borelli, Laura Claycomb, Elena Obraztsova, Eugeny Nesterenko, Luba Orfenova, Diane Zola, Richard Bado and Ann Hallenberg among others.
As well as performances at the Bolshoi Theatre, the 12/13 season and beyond will see Nadezhda appear more regularly in Europe, as she takes on a Festcontract at the Salzburger Landestheater singing the roles of Charlotte in Werther and Polinesso in Ariodante. She will also sing the role of Suzuki in Madama Butterfly at the Teatro Municipale de Santiago.
In September 2013 Nadezhda will join the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera, House Covent Garden.
