Anna Kissjudit

Mezzo-soprano

Hailed as ‘the Berlin discovery of the year’, 27 year old Hungarian mezzo-soprano / contralto Anna Kissjudit is a prodigious talent, having already debuted the role of Erda under the baton of Christian Thielemann in the new Ring Cycle at the Staatsoper Berlin, where she is an ensemble member. Future seasons see Kissjudit make debuts with  Hamburg State Opera, the Bayreuther Festspiele, Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Berliner Philharmonic.

In the 2023/24 season she makes a hugely anticipated debut as Ježibaba in a new production of  Rusalka at Staatsoper Berlin where she also can be heard as Erda Das Rheingold and Siegfried, Gaea Daphne and Third Lady Die Zauberflöte. In concert, she appears with the Brandenburgisches Staatsorchester Frankfurt in Rossini’s Stabat Mater, and as St Catherine in Honegger’s dramatic oratorio Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher with the Berlin Philharmonic under the baton of Alan Gilbert.

Last season in Berlin Kissjudit sang Gaea in Romeo Castellucci’s new production of Daphne and Third Lady in Die Zauberflöte as well as Erda. On the concert platform, she performed Mahler Symphony No.3 with Orchestre Philarmonique de Strasbourg in Strasbourg and Paris, and Beethoven Missa Solemnis with the Staatskapelle Berlin.

An alumna of the International Opera Studio of the Staatsoper Berlin, she has sung in previous seasons Tetka Jenůfa; Kate Pinkerton Madama Butterfly; and Chambermaid in Claus Guth’s new production of Janáček’s Die Sache Makropulos.

On the concert platform, she made her debut at the Berlin Philharmonie under the musical direction of Daniel Barenboim in Bruckner Te Deum and appeared at the Wagner Days festival at Müpa Budapest in Die Walküre under the direction of Ádám Fischer.

Press

Kissjudit gives the vision an unmistakable face, self-confident, strong-willed. Completely effortless, dramatically captivating with a deep foundation and expressively powerful euphony, steps to meet Wotan. Kissjudit unravels this difficult game with relentless emphasis.

The Berlin discovery of the year – because she sings Erda with a tenderness, as if it were a lullaby.

rbbKultur

It goes without saying that Anna Kissjudit uses her short Erda appearance to exude earthy tones. by itself. Musically, this prelude is breathtaking.

Opern.news

Anna Kissjudit can take the limelight as mother Gaea.

Berliner Morgenpost

Anna Kissjudit as Mother Gaea, on the other hand, takes you to the deepest depths with her full organ. Her aria – a terrific swan song.
