Aside from standard repertoire, Nina has given recitals featuring newly composed works and has given many premieres.

Since then, Nina has been cast in a number of operatic roles: highlights include Olympia (Tales of Hoffmann), Fiordiligi (Cosi fan Tutte), Die Konigin der Nacht (Die Zauberflote), Miss Wordsworth (Albert Herring), the Governess (The Turn of the Screw), Vitellia (La Clemenza di Tito), Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), and the role of "Zerlina" in Time Zone Theatre's Mozart-Medley "A Night in Vienna", which went on a 2 month UK Tour, in May/June 2017. Nina's Musical background: Nina has a BMus(Hons) and PG Dip in viola performance from the Birmingham Conservatoire, where she studied with Rivka Golani. Nina worked for many years as a freelance viola player with orchestras such as the RSNO, Scottish Ballet and many others.

The second half of the evening was a production of the Mozart medley A Night in Vienna. Set in the reception area of the Vienna Grand Hotel and including songs from Mozart’s most famous Operas: Don Giovanni, The Magic Flute, Cosi fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro. Two men vie for the love of one woman and use all the tricks in the book to win her. Aidan Coburn, Nick Dwyer and Nina Kopparhed are all wonderful and the English libretto by Pamela Schermann is at times hilarious. Brilliantly acted by all three performers and Aidan Coburn’s singing is so beautiful I was almost moved to tears. A thoroughly enjoyable evening

Nina really came into her own in her performance of three songs by Frank Bridge...The standard throughout was extraordinarily fine both musically and technically
