Equally at home in both traditional and contemporary opera, Robyn made her professional debuts in 2015 for the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden singing Barbarina in David McVicar’s production of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, and Peg in the world premiere of The Virtues of Things by Matt Rogers. Following her early training in historical performance practice with conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Robyn took part in Monteverdi’s Orfeo production for the Bayerische Staatsoper in 2015 with conductor Ivor Bolton and director David Bösch. In 2016, Robyn was awarded a Cesti Singing Competition prize for the creation of a role of Clelia in  Octavia by Reinhard Keiser at the Innsbruck Early Music Festival.

A keen interpreter of Mozart, Robyn performed the roles of Susanna, Zerlina, Pamina and the Königin der Nacht while studying music at the University of Oxford and the Royal College of Music, London. In 2017, Robyn performed extracts from Mozart’s operas in Peter Schaffer’s play Amadeus for the National Theatre, London.
In 2018 Robyn sang the role of Konstanze/ Die Entführung aus dem Serail for the first time in two productions, at the Musik und Theater Saar as well as at Theater Görlitz. Her re-invitation to Theater Görlitz for Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni was cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Robyn received great critical acclaim for her performances as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos by Richard Strauss for Longborough Festival Opera in 2018. An exploration into romantic repertoire continued with Helmwige in Wagner’s Die Walküre at Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, with conductor Juraj Valcuha in 2019. In 2020 she became an ensemble member at the Theater für Niedersachsen in Hildesheim where she shone with her virtuoso vocal technique and musicality with roles such as Amelia in Mercadante's "I Briganti" and Giovanni Pacini's Medea as well as Violetta/ La Traviata and Michaela/ Carmen and well established herself in the bel canto field.  In 2020, a return to the Longborough Opera Festival as Adina in Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore was canceled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

Cultivating a love for contemporary opera, Robyn created the role of Agnes in Nothing by David Bruce for Glyndebourne Festival Opera. In 2018, Robyn returned to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden to sing the title role in Coraline by Mark-Anthony Turnage, a part she would reprise in Swedish for the Folkoperan, Stockholm in February 2020. For this latter performance, Robyn was awarded the ‘Friends of Folkoperan 2021 Soloist Award’. In 2019, Robyn  took over the part of Jen in Philip Venables’ acclaimed 4.48 Psychosis at the Opèra National du Rhin. She plays Jen once more in December 2021 at the Philharmonie de Paris with Ensemble Intercontemporain. She has also appeared in "Heart Chamber" by Chaya Czernowin at Deutsche Oper Berlin and in Jules Maxwell's "The Lost Thing" for the Linbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

With the start of the season 22/23 she has become an ensemble member at the Theater Münster, where she makes her debut as Thamar in Leben des Orest (Ernst Krenek), Gilda in Rigoletto, as well as 5. Magd and Schleppträgerin /Elektra, she sings also the role of Rita in a world premiere of Great Open Eyes by Manuel Zwerger and Carmen C. Kruse. 

As a concert artist Robyn has performed with ensembles including the Leipzig Gewandhaus, Gustav Mahler Chamber Orchestra, London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Orchestra of the Age of
Enlightenment, English Baroque Soloists, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Luxembourg Philharmonie and the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra. Recently she has been heard with the Streicherakademie Bozen and the Collegium Musicum Bruneck in concerts in Italy with Joseph Haydns' Ave Regina Coelorum and the Creation Mass. Once again in Italy, she performed under the direction of Michael Hofstetter an with the Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto in Padua in Mendelssohn's " Lobgesang”, whereupon she has been invited by Michael Hofstetter to the International Gluck Festival 2024 for concerts in Gotha and Bayreuth to perform in C.W. Glucks' La clemenza di Tito/Servilia.

In 2023/24 Season, Robyn will appear at the Theater Münster,  in exciting premieres as Astrate in. F. Schreker's "Der Schmied von Gent", Micaela/ Carmen and Amélite/ Zoroastre by J.P.Rameau,  as well as she returns to a role of Gilda in Rigoletto, which will now also take her as a cover to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden London and on a ROH guest tour to Japan under the direction of Antonio Pappano.

Numerous recordings document the artist's career. In 2023, Robyn released her first solo album  Burnished Gold on Stone Records, featuring the songs from the Vienna Secession with pianist Simon Lepper as an accompanist. The album immediately made it into the top ten of the British classical music charts, with the centerpiece being the Seven Early Songs of Alban Berg.

Other projects include role debuts with Micaela/ Carmen and Amélite/ Zoroastre by J.P.
