Linda Mallik was born in Stockholm, Sweden by Indian-Swedish parents.

After graduating from Kungsholmens Musikgymnasium, with classical studies in Latin and Greek - Linda Mallik became a piano student at Edsbergs Musikinstitut. She then worked many years as a classical concert and chamber musician, and later as an orchestral conductor. In 2009 Linda decided to make a shift to what had always been an interest equal to music - theatre and literature. After two years of studies at the University College of Opera staging works like Tosca, Rake's Progress, Aida, Siegfried, Wozzeck she made her official debut as stage director at Folkoperan with her own adaption and translation of Gounods's Faust, graduating the same year with a Master of Arts in stage directon.

Since her debut 2011, Linda has been much in demand as stage director, staging the works of the opera repertoire in opera houses all over Sweden.

With an explicit wish to tell a story through music, to intertwine musical expression with scenic action into an inseparable unit, Linda Mallik finds herself dedicated for musical drama. Working closely with composers on different projects gives Linda the possibility to explore and expand the borders of the artform. It has resulted in the premiere of her own musical play "Liam and the Five Challenges" for Norrbottensteatern in 2015, with composer K. Hansén, "Calamity Jane", by Rebecka Cardoso for Teater Halland with composer J. Engström and Aurora by J. Dominique at Berwaldhallen.

Besides Swedish and English, Linda speaks several languages and with a sensitive ear for how words take place in music, she made several acclaimed translations of opera libretti like Zaide, The Cunning Little Vixen and soon to come, Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny at NorrlandsOperan in fall 2016.
