Magnificent Miah – Mozart Diva du Jour

Internationally acclaimed soprano Miah Persson performs Mozart throughout the world.

At the end of this month Miah Persson sings Donna Elvira in a new production of Don Giovanni  at the Champs Elysees in Paris.  This is not the first time that Miah has sung the role (she performed it at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2011) but is yet more confirmation of her pre-eminence amongst today’s leading interpreters of Mozart. Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte is another role which Miah has made her own, having performed it at the Vienna State Opera, Metropolitan Opera New York and at the Bayerische Staatsoper, among others. The start of this season saw Miah on tour with René Jacobs and Berlin’s Akademie fur Alte Music singing Pamina in Die Zauberflöte. This was followed by Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro at the Vienna Staatsoper and in February of this year she made her debut as the Countess in the same opera with the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Ivan Fischer, performances that are repeated this coming summer at the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York.  This year also sees Miah take Fiordiligi to Tokyo before returning for Susanna when the Vienna State Opera present performances of Figaro at the Bolshoi in Moscow.  She will also record Aspasia in Mozart’s first opera, Mitridate, with the Classical Opera Company and perform in his Requiem with Runnicles and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
