Lila Palmer is a librettist whose warmth, clarity and stylistic flexibility have made her a favoured partner of established and emerging composers alike. An advanced vocal performer herself, Lila’s skill in advocating for and writing to the classically trained voice has enabled her to bridge the gap between the world of interpreter and creative. 

She is the only alumnus of the both of the two full-time degree and resident librettist development programs in existence, respectively the ROH-Guildhall Opera Makers program (London, UK) and American Lyric Theatre’s CLDP initiative.
