Praised for her "beautifully ruby-throated quality" (Classical Voice North Carolina), Minnesota native Victoria Erickson is establishing herself as a promising and vibrant soprano. ​Most recently, Ms. Erickson toured Madagascar as a featured soprano with Minnesota-based company Really Spicy Opera, where she performed concerts and participated in outreach around the island.


Previously, Erickson spent the summer and fall of 2021 as an Emerging Artist with Seagle Festival, where she sang the role of Harmony Twichell in the world premiere of Harmony with music by Robert Carl and libretto by Russell Banks. In 2020, Erickson made her international debut with Really Spicy Opera, performing the title role of Émilie in André-Modeste Grétry's 1781 comic opera Émilie ou la belle esclave in Paris.


In 2019, Erickson received the Encouragement Award at the North Dakota-Manitoba District of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and covered Nedda in Greensboro Opera's production of Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. She also made her Greensboro Opera mainstage debut as Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors in December 2019.


 Also in the 2018-19 season, Erickson performed the role of Blanche in Dialogues des Carmélites with Saltworks Opera, the Resident Opera Company of the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and portrayed Alice Ford in Verdi's Falstaff, where Voix des Arts praised her for her "pointed wit, and sparkling tone wielded with comedic potency" (UNCG Opera Theatre). 


 Other previous engagements include Liù in Turandot (North Carolina Summer Opera), Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, and Granny in a children's touring opera production of Little Red Riding Hood (UNCG Opera Theatre). Erickson received an Encouragement Award at the Charlotte Opera Guild Competition (Opera Carolina) in both 2017 and 2018 and was a finalist for the Student Artist Competition at the UNCG School of Music.


 Additionally, Erickson received a merit-based scholarship to attend Berlin Opera Academy and was awarded a Colburn Fellowship with SongFest in Los Angeles, California. Other opera credits include Maggie in The Clever Artifice of Harriet and Margaret (Really Spicy Opera) and The Baron in an all-female production of Cendrillon (Garden of Song Opera).


 A versatile performer, Erickson has also appeared in musical theatre roles such as Rapunzel in Into the Woods (Phipps Center for the Arts, College Light Opera Company) and Hedy LaRue in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (College Light Opera Company), in addition to performing in a touring revue of Irving Berlin songs with Seagle Festival in Fall 2021.

During the 2022-23 season, Erickson looks forward to recording a new opera with Opera Arlington, Meow and Forever, performing on the "Effective Auditioning" masterclass and singing the roles of Alcina/Dame Disincantata in Caccini's La liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina with Opera Reading Project, and performing as the Soprano Soloist with St. Clement's Episcopal Church Choir during their residency at St. Albans Cathedral in the United Kingdom in August 2023. She lives in the Twin Cities metro area, where she offers private voice lessons and writes a blog about vocal injury, resiliency, and artistry at The Shifting Soprano.
