Anna Korondi (Soprano)

Born: Budapest, Hungary

The Hungarian soprano, Anna Korondi, began her singing studies in Budapest, her native city. In 1993 she graduated with distinction from the Vienna Conservatory.

Anna Korondi was a member of the company at the Komische Oper in Berlin from 1993 to 1997, then of the company at the Bonn Opera from 1997 to 1999. The next year she made her debut at the Bavarian State Opera singing the title role in the world premiere of Aribert Reimann’s La Casa de Bernarda Alba conducted by Zubin Mehta (in a production by Harry Kupfer). At the 2001 Salzburg Festival she played Adele (Die Fledermaus) in a production by Hans Neuenfels, conducted by Marc Minkowski.

Today Anna Korondi, whose repertoire extends from Baroque to contemporary music, is invited to perform with the great European orchestras and in important festivals (Bachfest Leipzig, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival). She has worked under such conductors as Howard Arman, Frans Brüggen, Adam Fischer, Enoch zu Guttenberg, Philippe Herreweghe, Yakov Kreizberg, Erwin Ortner, Eliahu Inbal, Marcello Viotti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Helmuth Rilling. She is also in great demand as a lieder singer. She will shortly be appearing at the Komische Oper in Berlin and at the 2003 Schwetzingen Festival.
