ABOUT ME

„Allround talent is necessary in order to make a real career these days. Evmorfia Metaxaki is a convincing example of this“

Salzburger Festspiele

Greek soprano Evmorfia Metaxaki was presented to the public at the Salzburg Festival as a „Star of the new generation CON BRIO“. She has made her successful début as Mademoiselle Silberklang in Mozart ́s Der Schauspieldirektor, and sang the role of Bastienne in Mozart ́s Bastien und Bastienne. The production Bastien/Bastienne und der Schauspieldirektor has been captured on DVD by Deutsche Grammophon.

Her performance as Giulietta in Bellini ́s Capuleti e Montecchi at the Theatre of Lübeck, was acclaimed by critics and audiences. In the 2013/2014 season, she joined the ensemble of the Theatre Lübeck, where she appeared a.o. as Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Ilia (Idomeneo), Ginevra (Ariodante), Marzelline (Fidelio), Adina (L ́elisir d ́amore), Titania (The Fairy Queen), Corinna (Il viaggio a Reims), Clorinda (La Cenerentola), Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel), Baronin Freimann (Der Wildschütz), Ghita (Der Zwerg), Musetta (La Bohème), Xenia (Boris Godunov directed by Peter Konwitchny), Dede (A Quiet Place), and Maria (West Side Story).

Evmorfia opens the 2019/2020 season at the Theater Lübeck with Mahler ´s Symphony No.2 under the baton of Stefan Vladar. She continues singing leading roles including Isabella in Milhaud ´s Cristophe Colomb, Eupaforice in Graun ´s Montezuma and Donna Anna in Mozart ´s Don Giovanni. Upcoming engagements include also her return to the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in the role of Clorinda in Rossini ´s La Cenerentola.

She has been a frequent guest with the Lautten Compagney Berlin. In 2011, she sang Armida in Händel ́s Rinaldo, and she has toured in Germany and Switzerland under Wolfgang Katschner (co-production with the Händel Festival Halle). In 2012, she took the part of Almirena (Rinaldo), and thus extended her Händel repertoire. At the 19th Magdeburg Telemann Festival she sang Rodelinda in Telemann ́s Flavius Bertaridus. Furthermore, she has made guest appearances at the Salzburg Festival, the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, the Salzburg State Theatre, the Potsdamer Winteroper, the Greek National Opera (collaboration with Graham Vick), the Staatstheater Mainz, the Staatstheater Braunschweig, the Staatstheater Cottbus, the Theater Dortmund, and the Theater of Erfurt.

From 2004 – 2010, Evmorfia was engaged by the Theater Magdeburg and she was the recipient of the prestigious „Förderpreis für junge Künstler“ (Special Prize for Young Artists). She appeared in roles such as Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Euridice (Orphée aux enfers), and Despina (Così fan tutte). She also worked with the renowned director Andreas Kriegenburg in his first opera productions, Mozart ́s Idomeneo and Gluck ́s Orpheus und Eurydike. The Gluck production was nominated for the esteemed German Theater Award DER FAUST 2006.

The Athens-born singer studied with Lilian Sukis at the University Mozarteum in Salzburg and attended master classes given by Barbara Bonney, Thomas Hampson, Stella Doufexis and Hartmut Höll. For her interpretation of Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), she received the prestigious „Lilly Lehmann“-Medal, the highest award given by the International Mozart Foundation. In 2010 she was finalist at the International Singing Competition GRANDI VOCI in Salzburg.
