We are thrilled to announce that the great soprano Anne Schwanewilms has joined Askonas Holt. A regular at the world’s great opera houses she recently sang the Empress in ‘Die Frau ohne Schatten’ at the Metropolitan Opera, New York which prompted the New York Observer to write “In contrasting glory, debuting soprano Anne Schwanewilms fascinated as the Empress […] with a haunting shimmer in the character’s extremely high tessitura. Even more effective was her elusive stage presence. She never walked but danced, and her expressions always looked distant and enigmatic, more like an elaborately crafted mask than a human face”. We have the greatest pleasure in welcoming her to our list.
