Austrian-English soprano Anna Prohaska made her debut aged 18 at Berlin’s Komische Oper as Flora in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw and soon after with the Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, entering the ensemble at age 23. She has since gone on to have an extraordinary international career with some of the world’s greatest opera houses and orchestras, though the Staatsoper remains her artistic home.
Plans for the 23/24 season include Angelica (Orlando) conducted by Ivor Bolton for Teatro Real Madrid, Silvia (Violetter Schnee) conducted by Matthias Pintscher for the Deutsche Staatsoper, L’Ange in Messiaen’s St François d’Assise conducted by Kent Nagano for the Hamburgische Staatsoper and a return to Festival Aix-en-Provence. On the concert platform, Anna performs the world premiere of Rufus Wainwright’s Dream Requiem with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Mikko Franck, Kurtag’s Kafka Fragments with Isabelle Faust at the Gran Teatre del Liceu, Mozart arias conducted by Ivor Bolton for the Mozartwoche Salzburg, Mendelssohn’s Hör mein Bitten and Infelice with the Kammerakademie Potsdam, and her ‘Serpent and Fire’ programme with Il Giardino Armonico for the Grafenegg Festival. She also appears with the Phantasm ensemble at the Wigmore Hall, joins the London Mozart Players for their 75th anniversary concert conducted by Jonathan Bloxham and debuts her ‘Ophelia' programme in Paris at the Athénée Théâtre. Tours in the 23/24 season include a solo concert tour with Ensemble Modern conducted by Sir George Benjamin featuring the world premiere of Filidei’s Cantico delle Creature, a collaborative dance project with the Emanuel Soavi Company and Lautten Compagney, and a recital tour of her ‘Paradise Lost’ programme alongside Julius Drake.
