Two opera recordings, both starring Mojca Erdmann, are now available for purchase and pre-order. The German soprano’s acclaimed performance as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier, captured in a live performance at the 2014 Salzburg Festival, was recently released on C Major DVD and Blu-ray. Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss, the performance also features Krassimira Stoyanova as the Marschallin, Sophie Koch as Octavian, and Günther Groissböck as Baron Ochs. Franz Welser-Möst conducts the production, directed by Harry Kupfer.
In April, Mojca’s star turn in Lulu at the Staatsoper Berlin will be available on Deutsche Grammophon DVD and Blu-ray. Mojca sings Berg’s eponymous femme fatale in this 2012 production, directed by Andrea Breth and opposite Deborah Polaski, Michael Volle, Thomas Piffka, and Stephan Rügamer under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. Mojca returns to this production this month, once again with Maestro Barenboim at the podium.
