Paula Murrihy has been a member of the ensemble at Oper Frankfurt since 2009. Her roles here during the 2013/14 season are Fulvia (role debut) in a new production of Gluck's Ezio, Dido Dido and Aeneas, a role with which she enjoyed a triumph at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival on tour with Oper Frankfurt, Medoro in Orlando furioso and Dorabella in Così fan tutte. Roles with which this Irish mezzo-soprano has enjoyed great success in Frankfurt in recent seasons have included Sesto (new production of Giulio Cesare in Egitto last season), Emilia (Otello), Lazuli (Chabrier's L’Étoile), Kreusa (first ever performances in Germany of Reimann's Medea), La Muse / Nicklausse (Hoffmanns Erzählungen/The Tales of Hoffmann), Tebaldo (Don Carlo), Clotilde (Norma, in concert), Scipio (Glanert's Caligula), Cherubino (Die Hochzeit des Figaro/Le nozze di Figaro) and Annio (La clemenza di Tito). Before she came to Frankfurt Paula Murrihy was a member of San Francisco Opera's Merola Program, where she took part in the world premiere of Pasatieri's Hotel Casablanca. In the spring of 2013 she sang the title role in Arthur Honegger's Judith in Utrecht. Other guest engagements in recent seasons have included appearances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, Santa Fe Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse and Dido at the Lugo Opera Festival and in Bologna. She has appeared in recital in some of the world's finest venues, including the Aldeburgh Festival, Wexford Festival, Carnegie Hall in New York, as part of the „Marilyn Horne Foundation Masterclass Series“ and, in March 2013, at Oper Frankfurt in a joint recital with Simon Bode. She won the first „Anny Schlemm Prize“ in 2010.
