Wolfgang Rihm’s Dionysos marks Mojca’s return to Staatsoper Berlin

This July German soprano Mojca Erdmann returns to the Staatsoper Berlin in Wolfgang Rihm’s opera Dionysos. A champion of new music, Mojca will sing Ariadne, a role she originated when Rihm’s opera was premiered at the Salzburg Festival in 2010. Her role debut garnered high praise from the the New York Times, which marveled at how Mojca “dispatches the vocal leaps and high-flying outbursts of this super-demanding role with clear tone, ease and expressivity.” You can hear Mojca in Rihm’s Dionysos at the Staatsoper’s Schiller Theater July 8, 10, 13, and 15.
