About

Fatma Said (born 1991 in Cairo) is an Egyptian soprano living (as of 2022) in London. She has appeared on many international stages, including the Teatro San Carlo (Naples), Staatsoper Hamburg, Royal Opera House Muscat, Wexford Opera in Ireland, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Vienna Konzerthaus, Royal Albert Hall, and Carnegie Hall. She played roles in the operas Falstaff, L'enfant et les sortilèges, La Cenerentola and The Barber of Seville. She sang at many well-known festivals such as the International Music Festival in Bad Kissingen, the Schumann Festival in Bonn and the 9th and 10th D-Marine Turgutreis International Classical Music Festival in Turkey. She was an artist-in-residence at the Konzerthaus Berlin in 2022/23.

Fatma Said grew up in Cairo, where she attended the Deutsche Schule der Borromäerinnen Kairo. Her father, Ahmed Hassan Said, was the first president of the Free Egyptians Party founded during the Arab Spring.

Said's early focus was tennis, but following the recommendation of her school choir teacher she received her first singing lessons at the age of 14 with soprano Névine Allouba. In 2009 she got accepted to study classical singing at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler Berlin where she received her Bachelor of Music in 2013 and Master of Music in 2018 under Prof. Renate Faltin. She then received a scholarship at the Opera Academy of La Scala in Milan, becoming the first Egyptian soprano to ever sing at La Scala. In 2016 she was seen as Pamina in Peter Stein's production of The Magic Flute at La Scala in Milan.

Said is also known for her social commitment. At TEDxCairo in 2011, she sang “The Day the People Changed”, a new song she participated in composing about the Egyptian revolution. In 2013, she worked with composer Eugenio Bennato at the Teatro San Carlo on an educational project about the Arab Spring. She represented Egypt on Human Rights Day several times and appeared at the United Nations in Geneva together with Juan Diego Flórez where she committed herself to the musical education of children and young people. In 2016 she was the first opera singer to receive the Creativity Award from Egypt. She was also honored by the National Council for Women that same year. On 25 September 2021 she performed at Global Citizen Live in Paris, along with Elton John, Ed Sheeran, and other well known stars.
