Claudia Mahnke


Mezzo-soprano

Claudia Mahnke
Claudia Mahnke made her debut at the Bayreuth Festival in 2013 singing Fricka, Waltraute and 2nd Norn in Der Ring des Nibelungen. She sang her first Waltraute and 2nd Norn in the new Ring (available on CD and DVD, OehmsClassics) at Oper Frankfurt, where she has been a member of the ensemble since 2006. Her roles for the company during the 2013/14 season are the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos, Meg Page in Falstaff (both new productions) and a repeat of her unforgettable portrayal of Judith in Herzog Blaubarts Burg/Bluebeard's Castle. Roles here last season were Blanche in a new production of Der Spieler/The Gambler and Adriano in concert performances of Rienzi. Other roles with which she has thrilled audiences and critics here in recent seasons have included Brangäne (Tristan und Isolde), Marguerite (Fausts Verdammnis/The Damnation of Faust), Emilia (Otello), Giulietta (Hoffmanns Erzählungen/The Tales of Hoffmann), Charlotte (Werther), Cherubino (Die Hochzeit des Figaro/Le nozze di Figaro), Lucretia (The Rape of Lucretia), Concepción (L'Heure espagnole), Giovanna Seymour (Anna Bolena, in concert) and the title role in Hartmann's Simplicius Simplicissimus - a role for which she received many nominations for „Female Singer of the Year 2006“ (Opernwelt) when she sang it for the first time at the Stuttgart State Opera, where she was under contract for a long time before moving to Frankfurt. Guest engagements have included Brangäne at the Ruhrtriennale and Houston Grand Opera, Adriano at the Teatro Real in Madrid, Octavian (Der Rosenkavalier) in Essen and Cologne, Dorabella (Così fan tutte) at the Opéra National de Lyon, Dorabella, Cherubino, Zerlina Don Giovanni and the Composer at San Francisco Opera, Das Lied von der Erde and Brangane with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Hong Kong and appearances at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich and with the Deutsche Oper Berlin on tour in Seoul.
