Anna Stephany

Anna StephanyMarco Borggreve

Anna Stéphany is emerging as one of the world’s most exciting mezzo sopranos. In demand by both opera companies and orchestras, she is a firm favourite with conductors and directors, and has been praised for her stage-craft and “a superb, glowing, impassioned” voice.

Anna was a member of the ensemble at Opernhaus Zürich from 2012-15, where she made her debut as Cherubino in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro. Further roles in Zürich include Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte, Siebel in Gounod’s Faust, Nicklausse in Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann and Minerva in Monteverdi’s Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria. Her close relationship with the house has continued with Sesto in La Clemenza di Tito, a new production of Purcell’s King Arthur, Romeo I Capuleti e i Montecchi and Charlotte Werther.

One of her most coveted roles is Octavian in Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, which she sang at the Bolshoi Theatre, the Royal Swedish Opera and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

On the concert stage Anna has performed with some of the world’s finest orchestras. Appearances include the BBC Proms with the London Philharmonic Orchestra/Jurowsky; Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Berlioz’s Les nuits d’été with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Cesti’s Orontea with La Nuova Musica at Wigmore Hall, Elgar’s Sea Pictures with the Bremer Philharmoniker, St Matthew Passion with the Handel & Haydn Society/Harry Christophers, a recital with Sholto Kynoch in Lille, La damoiselle élue with the Philharmonia Orchestra/Esa-Pekka Salonen, and a programme of Handel in New York, London and Paris with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment/William Christie in a tribute to Lorraine Hunt Lieberson.

Anna made her critically acclaimed opera recording debut in 2013 in the title role of Handel’s Serse with Christian Curnyn and Early Opera Company.
