Paula Murrihy has been a member of the ensemble at Oper Frankfurt since 2009. Last season this Irish mezzo-soprano enjoyed triumphs in two new productions, singing two roles for the first time: title role in Antonio Cesti's LʼOrontea and Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier, a role she sings at the Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam and Suttgart Opera this season. Roles in Frankfurt in 2015/16 are Hänsel in last season's wonderful new production of Hänsel und Gretel, Tebaldo in Don Carlo, Polissena in Handel's Radamisto and the title role in Bizet's Carmen - both new productions. In 2014 she sang Dido in Oper Frankfurt's wonderful staging of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas at Los Angeles Opera – a role she sang in Frankfurt when it first opened and on tour with the company at the 2013 Edinbrugh Festival. Other recent guest engagements have included the title role in Arthur Honegger's Judith in Utrecht, appearances at Covent Garden in London, Santa Fe Opera, the Boston Lyric Opera, the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse and the Lugo Opera Festival. Paula Murrihy has appeared in recital at the Aldeburgh Festival, Wexford Festival, the Carnegie Hall in New York and will give her second recital at Oper Frankfurt this season. Recent concert work has included the St. Matthew Passion with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Hindemith's Marienleben with the Real Filharmonia de Galicia. Earlier on in her career she was awarded a scholarship by San Francisco Opera's Merola Program and in 2011 she won the first »Anny-Schlemm-Preis«.
