Schönberg's Erwartung at the Neue Oper, Vienna

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.

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)
