KRISTINE OPOLAIS

Soprano

Kristine Opolais is acknowledged as one of the most exciting young sopranos before the public today. In October of 2010, she made a sensational debut at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich in the title role of the new production of Dvorak’s Rusalka directed by Martin Kusej. This was followed in June of 2011 by her debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Cio Cio San in Madama Butterfly which was received with extraordinary critical and public acclaim.

Press

“Ms. Opolais seemed to live with it, growing in stature as the evening went on and radiating the kind of aura – one that demands you watch her, and sympathize with her – that defines a star… She is a performer with a tremendous future ahead of her. New York will be lucky to have her.”

Kristine Opolais – VAN Feature

May 25, 2017

Aus dem Kontext gerissene Arien, die Blicke der Anderen, Rollen, die zu nahe gehen, der Respekt vor Wagner. Für dieses Interview traf ich die Sopranistin Kristine Opolais in ihrem Hotel in Leipzig. Es war sehr warm und bewölkt und wir saßen draußen. Von Zeit zu Zeit fiel etwas Regen. Immer, wenn Opolais lachte, lehnte sie sich ein wenig nach vorne – ihre Schultern bildeten dann über ihren Arm ein Dreieck mit ihrer Hand, ihr Handgelenk drückte sie durch. Wir tranken Kaffee und aßen kleine Kuchen dazu.

„Die neue First Lady des Gewandhauses“

May 20, 2017

Eigentlich ist es erstaunlich, dass sie nun zum ersten Mal in Leipzig ist. Schließlich steht seit rund zwei Jahren fest, dass ihr Mann Andris Nelsons 2018 Gewandhauskapellmeister wird. Doch das hat Prinzip: „Wir halten unsere Karrieren ziemlich strikt auseinander und vermeiden es nach Möglichkeit, darüber zu reden, wenn wir zusammen sind.“

Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with the BSO

May 7, 2017

“The soloist was soprano Kristine Opolais, who, singing from a score, brought a light, nimble voice to the music. The opening section had a slight darkness to the sound, which added, perhaps, the weight of earthly pleasures. “Kein Musik ist ja nicht auf Erden” floated tenderly.”

Aaron Keebaugh – Boston Classical Review
