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

In 2012, she took the part of Almirena (Rinaldo), and thus extended her Händel repertoire.

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.

In 2010 she was finalist at the International Singing Competition GRANDI VOCI in Salzburg.
