Claudia Mahnke
After her return from the 2014 Bayreuth Festival, where she sang Fricka / Waltraute / and 2nd Norn in the Ring and Judith in our production of Bluebeard's Castle at Los Angeles Opera, Claudia Mahnke returns to Frankfurt to repeat her wonderful portrayal of the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos and sing Ottavia in a new production of Monteverdi's Lʼincoronazione di Poppea, the Foreign Princess in Rusalka and Kundry (role debut) in Parsifal. She has been a member of the ensemble at Oper Frankfurt since 2006, where her most recent roles have included Meg Page (Falstaff), Judith (Herzog Blaubarts Burg/Bluebeard's Castle), Blanche (Der Spieler/The Gambler) and Adriano (concert performances of Rienzi, available on CD/OehmsClassics). In earlier seasons she also thrilled the audiences with performances of 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) and the title role in Hartmann's Simplicius Simplicissimus. Earlier on in her career Claudia Mahnke was under contract in Stuttgart, who bestowed the title of Kammersängerin upon her in 2006. She received several nominations for »Singer of the Year« in Opernwelt magazine for her interpretation of Simplicius Simplicissimus in Stuttgart. Guest engagements have included appearances at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, 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 and San Francisco Opera, and appearances with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo (Das Lied von der Erde, Brangäne and, in 2014, Fricka in a concert performance of Das Rheingold as part of the Spring Festival) and in Seoul, with the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
