Christina Gansch makes her debut at the Staatsoper Berlin this week, singing the Waldvogel in ‘Siegfried’ conducted by Daniel Barenboim. She is joined on stage by Anna Larsson in the role of Erda.
The 2015/16 season has been a terrific one for Christina. She has sung Zerlina in concert performances of ‘Don Giovanni’ with MusicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis. The same team also recorded the opera for Sony, and the CD will be released shortly. At the Hamburgische Staatsoper she has sung Gemmy in a new production of ‘Guillaume Tell’ and Ascagne in a new production of ‘Les Troyens’. Later this summer she returns to the Salzburg Festival as Barbarina in ‘Le nozze di Figaro’ and to sing Mozart’s ‘Mass in C Minor’ with the Mozarteum Orchester Salzburg and Adam Fischer. She sings her first Ilia in ‘Idomeneo’ at the Igolstadt Festival with Concerto Köln and Kent Nagano, and then more Mozart at the the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, singing ‘Vesperae solennes de Confessore’ and ‘Coronation Mass’ with the Orchester der Academia Montis Regalis and Alessandro De Marchi.
Christina also looks forward to a number significant debuts in the coming seasons, including at The Royal Opera, Opéra National de Paris, Dutch National Opera and the Glyndebourne Festival.
‘Siegfried’ opens at Staatsoper Berlin on Wednesday 15 June 2016, with a further performance on Thursday 30 June. Find out more here.
