The German opera and lieder singer Anja Harteros is one of her generation’s most versatile opera stars. Equally at home in the Italian repertoire as in the works of Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, she interprets these roles all over the world. From the start of her career at the end of the 1990s, Anja Harteros has been closely associated with the Semperoper, returning frequently to perform in opera, concert and recital. In November 2020 she returns to Dresden’s opera stage in the role of Tosca. Previously, Semperoper audiences have enjoyed Anja Harteros’s recital of songs by Richard Strauss as well as a matinée recital of works by Schumann, Schubert, Brahms and Wolf in the 2018/19 season. Now, together with her pianist Wolfram Rieger, Anja Harteros is returning to Dresden for the 2020/21 season with a new lieder programme.
