Elza van den Heever
Elza van den Heever, a member of the Ensemble at Oper Frankfurt from 2008/09-2012/13, sang the role of Princess Helene for the first time when this production first opened last season. Roles with which this soprano thrilled audiences in Frankfurt in the past have included Desdemona (Otello), Elisabeth de Valois (Don Carlo), Giorgetta (Il trittico), Elektra (Idomeneo), Antonia (Hoffmanns Erzählungen/The Tales of Hoffmann), Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito), Elsa von Brabant (Lohengrin) and Elisabetta in Maria Stuarda, which she sang for the first time here in concert before making her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York with it in 2012. Elza van den Heever sang her first main operatic role - Donna Anna in Don Giovanni - in 2007, when she was a San Francisco Adler Fellow. Recent guest engagements have included productions at the Hamburg State Opera, the Opéra National de Bordeaux, Opéra National in Paris, the Theater an der Wien, Dallas Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Canadian Opera Company in Toronto. During the 2013/14 season she will sing Donna Anna at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Giselda in Verdi's I lombardi alla prima crociata at the Hamburg State Opera, Ellen Orford in Peter Grimes at English National Opera in London and the title role in Anna Bolena at the Opéra National de Bordeaux.
