In April 2015 Magdalena Anna Hofmann returns to Vienna in one of her most important roles, Frau in Schönberg’s Erwartung at the Neue Oper. The soprano has debuted the piece in 2013 in a new production by La fura dels Baus at the Opéra de Lyon and earned strong praise from the international press (“Hofmann, utterly engrossing here as the Woman… It was virtuoso, riveting stuff…” Hugo Shirley, Opera).
In Vienna, Hofmann will sing the part under the musical direction of contemporary music expert Walter Kobéra and in a new production by Elisabeth Gabriel.
Performances on 21, 23, 25 & 26 April 2015.
More information on the website of the Neue Oper Wien.
In March 2015 Hofmann had a huge success as Carlotta in Schreker’s Die Gezeichneten at Lyon Opera House (“Hofmann’s ease in managing both the length and the manifold vocal demands of the role was apparent; it was beautifully crafted, sung with aplomb, and in perfect harmony with her supple, never clichéd acting.” Robert Quitta, Opera Lounge)
