Following her celebrated role debut last year, Magdalena Anna Hofmann reprises the role of Isolde in Tristan und Isolde in October and November 2020, making her house debut at the Staatsoper Hannover.
The abridged version of Wagner’s masterpiece is based on a production by Stephen Langridge and is conducted by Constantin Trinks. Robert Künzli is Tristan, Shavleg Armasi King Marke, Monica Walerowicz Brangäne and Michael Kupfer-Radecky Kurwenal.
After her debut as Isolde last year in Hagen, Westfalenpost raved: “In front of Magdalena Anna Hofmann, the audience bows. The soprano makes her debut in Hagen as Isolde; she turns the title character into an angry warrior princess with a mysterious depth, a rich mid-range and a high range full of bittersweet splendor that makes her passion a force of nature. Magdalena Anna Hofmann is a sensational discovery in the Wagner repertoire.”
