Other guest engagements in recent seasons have taken her to many of the world's leading opera companies, including the Hamburg and Vienna state operas, Santa Fe Opera, Seattle, where she sang the title role in Handel's Semele, Glyndebourne, the BBC Proms and the Carnegie Hall in New York. She was invited back to sing at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg this August and appears in recital in Frankfurt in April 2016.
