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.”
