Ida was born in Helsingborg, Sweden, into a family of non-musicians. She saw her first opera at age 17 and fell in love with the art form instantly. She graduated with distinction from Malmö Academy of Music in 2016, where she studied singing with Britta Johansson and Conny Antonov. The same year she joined the Royal College of Music’s International Opera School (RCMIOS) where she studied with Dinah Harris, graduating in 2018 as a recipient of an Independent Opera Voice Award.


Ida is an Associate Artist of Classical Opera, was member of the Opera Studio at Staatsoper Stuttgart (2018-19), a Glyndebourne Jerwood Young Artist (2018), winner of the Anneliese Rothenberger Compeition (2019), a semi-finalist in the Kathleen Ferrier Competition (2018), an alumna of Solti Accademia di Bel Canto (2017), winner of the Lies Askonas Competition (2017) and received the Maisie Lewis Award from the Musicians’ Company (2018), of which she also was appointed Yeoman of the Company


She received several scholarships and awards during her training in Sweden, including the Aurora Lillieros Scholarship, Anna Withlock’s Memory Trust Scholarship and John Andersson I Anderslöv Foundation. Her studies in London were generously supported by the Josephine Baker Trust, Vivien & Peter Beckwith Fund and Victoria Robey OBE.

“The evening’s star performance came from the Swedish mezzo Ida Ränzlöv as Faramondo, her magnetic stage presence and consistently accomplished vocalism making her completely convincing.”
