Season 18/19September 30, 2018
I am very much looking forward to start the new season with a concert with Jonas Olsson in Vienna. We are invited by Musikverein La Prima Volta and will be performing a, for us unusual, program with music by Händel, Haydn and Schubert. To sing Arianna a Naxos has been on my wish list for a long time and I can’t imagine a better musician to delve into this music with than Jonas.
The first half of the season I have the luxury opportunity to sing many concerts and focus on concert repertoire. Highlights: I will return to Bernstein’s Jeremiah in a concert which will be broadcasted by BR and the same festival, Kirchenmusiktage, Fürth, to which I’m happy to be invited for the third time, I’ll sing a world premiere by the young composer Yulim Kim (Text Michael Herrschel). A cantata with a feminist perspective and which is dealing with “fake news” – very interesting!
Some time of mine will be devoted to the initiative Oper+ which I’ve started with a group of creative colleagues from the Nuremberg region. Oper+ is easiest to follow via the facebook page.
The first half of 2019 I’ll spend in Sweden singing Carmen at Wermland Opera. A company debut. It will be my fourth Carmen production, and they have all been very different from one another, but this time it is the Peter Brook -version which I personally find dramatically to the point. I’m very curious about the production (director: Sam Brown) and longing to even further develop my understanding of the role after the interesting work with director Barbara Schöne last season.
Some things which will happen during the season are not yet officially published but I’ll keep you updated here or through twitter!
