Robin has been cast in a vast array of independent theatre and music works alike. Always pushing the envelope and working with various multi-disciplinary arts Robin has become known for pioneering the emergence of innovative theatre and music.



Over the past few years Robin has worked for both local and international and has established herself as an asset to any show.


Known throughout the classical world for her unconventional approach to music this singer will hold you spellbound by her vocal acrobatics and thrilling stage performances. No song is a problem for this eclectic performer. Internationally acclaimed soprano Robin Botha landed the much coveted role of 'Christine Daae' in 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Earning rave reviews, Robin won the prestigious 2012 Fleur Du Cap Award for "Best Actress in A Musical" in her musical debut. Robin continued excelling in musicals appearing in Cape Town Opera’s production of 'Show Boat' and proceeded to get outstanding reviews for her portrayal of 'Magnolia Hawkes' in the United Kingdom tour. (The production was nominated for a "UK Theatre Award" for Best Touring Production) After returning to South Africa Robin was chosen as 'The Voice' in The Underground Dance Theatre in their production of MODE, a new work commissioned by The Baxter Theatre. MODE was then staged successfully at The National Arts Festival 2015 and Die Vryfees 2015. Robin graduated from The College of Music at the University of Cape Town. Here she performed various roles such as Manon (Manon), Helena (A midsummer night's dream) and Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutti) in a National Tour of South Africa. As well as appearing on opera and musical stages she has also headlined music festival stages across South Africa with her various electronic bands. Combining her operatic style with modern music production she has worked with some of South Africas most highly regarded music producers for film and radio. Not a performer to be put in a box Robin was chosen as resident front singer and MC of Cape Town's Burlesque Supper Theatre Club VAUDEVILLE. (Cape Town and Namibia) Her performances included opera, comedy cabaret, pop, swing and dance. As an added bonus for any event Robin has incorporated aerial hoop into her opera performances and can be seen singing high above the heads of an audience for a truely spectacular and unique visual element. Noted performances for corporates include Allen Gray Year End Function, Beverly Hills Hotel 50th Birthday, Body Spectre Awards, Old Mutual Awards, Deloitte Awards, Avis Roadshow (SA), Womens day Convention CTICC, Diamond Works, Steenberg and MCQP Launch. This year sees Robin co-directing and producing for the first time in a collaborative, exclusively South African production titled 'In Opstanding' to be performed at The State theatre in October. With her theatrical performances and fearlessness onstage this singer brings new life to an old art form.


Robin Botha made every bit as big a splash on opening night. It might be premature to say that a star is born, but I'm going to stick my neck out anyway. The actress exudes real class and didn't put a foot wrong for the entire evening. She also shares good chemistry with Roxmouth, giving their scenes a real charge, something that was sorely lacking in the 'Phantom' production of 2004. I have often felt that the role of Christine is a pretty thankless one, requiring little more from an actress than to hit those high notes and look blandly pretty, but Botha's range is such that she actually delivers a more three dimensional Christine than I thought was possible.

The Next 48 Hors
Robin Botha played the almost perennially happy character of Magnolia ‘Nolie’ Hawks who falls in love with the suave gambler Gaylord Ravenal in what must be the quickest courtship in the history of musical theatre. For her audition at the Trocadero club Nolie’s big number ‘Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man’ was convincingly sung by Botha with suitable charm and vulnerability, and crystal clear diction. Complementing each other delightfully Gaylord’s duets with Nolie ‘Make Believe’ and ‘You Are Love’ generated an engaging onstage chemistry.

Seen and heard International, Lyric Theatre, The Lowry, Salford, United Kingdom
Botha as Christine delivers a brilliant performance. An experienced opera singer and inspired by electronic opera and all things burlesque, Botha brings to her part a curious mix of classic opera with a modern accessible streak. Her voice is powerful and she just about raises the roof of the Artscape without, it seems, too much effort. Botha’s voice is complemented by that of the charming Roxmouth, who appeared very comfortable in his leading role.

Cape Times
Robin Botha as Christine was sparkling, with a sweetness of voice and manner that belied the power of her voice.

Daisy Ions

What's on in Cape Town
In stark contrast, soprano Robin Botha as Magnolia goes to the other end of the vocal range, but with matching beauty and colour. While these two have the limelight most, it is worth noting that the entire casts vocal ability is simply brilliant.

Laura Orton

The Reviews Hub
Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote phrases for the original lead soprano, Sarah Brightman, to showcase her capacity to soar. Robyn Botha does the role full justice and her voice flies effortlessly ever upward.
