Born in Buenos Aires, Argentinean-German soprano Natalia Hurst appears with versatility and irreverence in comic opera roles as Lucy (Menotti’s The Telephone) or Despina (Mozart’s Così fan tutte) and also in lyric characters as Pamina (Mozart´s Zauberflöte); she brings powerful food for the soul in each of her appearances, with an engaged perspective to re-hear the voice of women. As a graduate of Vienna University for Music and Performing Arts, she’s been singing around the world under direction of distinguished conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Marc Minkowski, Mariss Jansons, among others. Her album debut Lieder der Unterwelt (Underworld songs), with songs by Kurt Weill, Hugo Wolf and Arnold Schönberg is available at Spotify & Apple Music.
Concert premiere: Saturday 8th May
