Annette Dasch appears frequently at the Salzburg Festival, where she made her acclaimed debut in 2006, and at Covent Garden in London, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, La Scala in Milan and other leading opera houses.
With her ‘bright, focused voice’ (The New York Times), the German soprano has sung roles including Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Antonia in Offenbach’s Les contes d’Hoffmann, Eva in Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Elsa in Lohengrin, this last being particularly dear to her heart, as she has sung it nearly every year at Bayreuth since 2010.
Thanks to her love of the song repertoire, her voice also shines in small ensembles in halls like the Musikverein in Vienna, the Royal Concertgebouw and London’s Wigmore Hall.
Dasch has also built a reputation for herself singing roles in the great oratorios of Mendelssohn and Schumann, and with her recordings for Sony. Her debut album Armida was awarded an ECHO Klassik in 2008.
Dasch makes her first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in the 2016–17 season.
