German opera star and Lied interpreter Anja Harteros is one of the most versatile sopranos of her generation. Equally at home in the Italian repertoire as in the works of Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, she travels the world performing these roles. Anja Harteros has been closely associated with the Semperoper since launching her career at the end of the 1990s, thrilling Dresden audiences again and again in opera, concerts and recitals. Anja Harteros has previously appeared in a recital of works by Richard Strauss, and in the 2018/19 season performed a matinee of works by Schumann, Schubert, Brahms and Wolf. In the 2020/21 season Anja Harteros will also delight local audiences with a new programme of song, accompanied by her pianist Wolfram Rieger.
