Agnes Baltsa

Agnes Baltsa (born 19th November 1944 in Lefkada) is a leading Greek mezzo-soprano.

Baltsa made her first appearance in an opera in 1968 as Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro at Frankfurt Opera, before going on to appear as Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier at the Vienna State Opera in 1970. Coming under the guidance of Herbert von Karajan, she soon came to worldwide attention and became a regular at the prestigious Salzburg Festival. She became Kammersängerin of the Vienna State Opera in 1980. Her most well known performance is that of Carmen by Georges Bizet, which she has sung a number of times with José Carreras.

The greatest names in opera take to the stage for these galas from three musical centres that have come to stand as symbols of rebirth – Vienna, Berlin and Dresden. Vienna celebrates the 50th anniversary of the State Opera House’s reopening with music of humanity and rejoicing from Rosenkavalier to Fidelio, international stars fill the Dresden night with the sounds of operatic favourites, and Claudio Abbado conducts a New Year’s Eve tribute to Verdi in Berlin, closing with the life-affirming fugue the brings that curtain down on the master’s last opera, Falstaff.
