Mezzo soprano Anna Stéphany joins the cast of Robert Carsen’s upcoming new production of Hänsel und Gretel at Opernhaus Zürich. Anna will sing the role of Hänsel, alongside Olga Kulchynska as Gretel, Markus Brück as the father, and Marina Prudenskaya as the Witch. Fabio Luisi conducts the Philharmonia Zürich.
Hänsel und Gretel opens on Sunday 18th November, with performances running throughout the 2018-19 until 22 April.
Later this season, Anna sings the role of Octavian, in Opernhaus Zürich’s revival of Der Rosenkavalier, also under the baton of Fabio Luisi. Following this she will make her house debut at the Teatro Real Madrid, as Clairon Capriccio.
