This week Olena Tokar
makes her debut as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro
with Leipzig Opera where she is a member of the Artistic Ensemble.
Olena said: “I personally love the opera Le nozze di Figaro. Susanna is flirtatious, playful and crafty and these qualities are found in every woman. If a woman wants something, no one can stop her. The role of Susanna for me is long-awaited and very important. For such roles, you need youth, freshness and energy. Now, this is my moment!”
This marks the start of a very busy season for Olena in Leipzig, with other performances including Hänsel und Gretel, Faust, La bohème, Lobgesang, Die Zauberflöte, Parsifal, Die Götterdämmerung, Das Liebesverbot and Arabella.
Olena will close 2015 by returning to the UK for the annual Manchester Camerata New Years’ Day Viennese Gala Concert.
Performances of Le Nozze di Figaro
begin on 14 November 2015. For more information on Olena’s work with the Artistic Ensemble, please visit the Leipzig Opera website
