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.

In the 2022-23 season Evmorfia makes her debut in the title role of Richard Strauss’ Salome. Having begun with the lyrical repertoire, her debut as Salome marks a shift to a more dramatic register. She continues singing leading roles including the Contessa Almaviva in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro (directed by Stephen Lawless).  As a champion of an unusually wide range of repertoire, Evmorfia will perform songs by Franz Lehár, Paul Abraham and Victor Herbert in a first showing production ˋˋSing mich um den Verstand´´staged by Bernd Reiner Krieger. Notable concert appearances include Beethoven´s 9th Symphony under the direction of Stefan Vladar.

A notable Governess, her most recent performances of The Turn of the Screw were acclaimed by critics and audiences. In 2014 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), Seleuce (Tolomeo), Marzelline (Fidelio), Giulietta (Capuletti e Montecchi), 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), Isabelle (Christophe Colomb), Dede (A Quiet Place), and Mrs.Coyle (Owen Wingrave).

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), Despina (Così fan tutte), and Maria (West Side Story). 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. During her studies, she received scholarships from the Mozarteum University of Salzburg, the Gianna-Szel-Foundation and the Lions Club Salzburg. In 2010 she was finalist at the International Singing Competition GRANDI VOCI in Salzburg.

NEWS & REVIEWS

OPERNGLAS,  June 2022

The Turn of the Screw

„…Ideally cast was the leading role of the Governess. Evmorfia Metaxaki was able to show the whole range of her singing-acting qualities. From the smallest pianissimo to the radiant fortissimo she confidently kept the tension bow. Brilliantly musical and richly coloured with a melodious, flexible, assertive soprano voice, all facets and subtleties of her role interpretation came to bear, creating the oppressive atmosphere that the piece needs…“
