Olivia made her Couch Opera Live debut in the Premiere Episode. 

Perth Based Mezzo Soprano Olivia Sanders Robinson is most at home on the stage, described by Adelaide Now as a “splendid Cherubino” with a “sparkling personality”, and The Western Australian as “hilarious” in her portrayal of Mrs Herring in WAAPA’s 2016 production of Albert Herring. Her most recent roles include Lucretia in ICW’s Production of Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia and both Zita and La Principessa in The Cuskelly College of Music’s production of Puccini's Il trittico. Olivia has a keen interest in historical performance, having recently completed her Master of Arts (Performing Arts) on the historical performance of Schubert’s Lieder. As part of her thesis Olivia recorded Schubert lieder, influenced by the style of Johann Michael Vogl which was coached and accompanied by Stewart Smith. In 2017 she performed in Haydn’s Arianna a Naxos under the direction of Geoffrey Lancaster. Olivia is an avid choral singer who performs weekly as one of five choral scholars at the Church of the Resurrection, Swanbourne. She is often involved in concert and oratorio performances, having sung as an Alto soloist in Harmonia Australis’ Mozart's Requiem (2019). She has performed with a number of Adelaide and Perth based organisations including The Burnside Symphony Orchestra, Harmonia Australis, ICW Productions, Art Song Perth, Musica Amica, and Recitals Australia.
