After studying piano at the music school of her hometown Lesnoy.[1], Elena Stikhina studied singing at Moscow Conservatory and from 2012 to 2014 at Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre [2] in Moscow. Having completed her studies, Stikhina became a soloist at the Primorsky Opera and Ballet Theater in Vladivostok in 2014, and from 2017 a soloist at Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg.

Stikhina has been performing globally at the most important opera houses since 2016. 2017 saw her American debut as Floria Tosca in Puccini's Tosca in Boston's Lyric Opera[3]. In May 2018 she sang Senta in Richard Wagner's Flying Dutchman for the first time under the baton of Valery Gergiev in the Gasteig, Munich and Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Germany. In December 2018 Stikhina debuted at the Met as Puccini's Suor Angelica and in April 2019 as Cio-Cio-San in Puccini's Madama Butterfly at Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam[4]. In 2019 Stikhina also debuted at the Salzburg Festival in the title role of Cherubini's Médée[5][6] and at the BBC Proms in London as Tatjana in the letter scene of Tschaikowski's Eugene Onegin[7].
