Katharina Konradi

Katharina Konradi was born in Bischkek, Kyrgyzstan, and is the first soprano from this country to have an international career as a lied, concert and opera singer. She has been a member of the Hamburg State Opera since 2018. She sings the major soprano roles and it was not long before other renowned opera houses offered her engagements, for instance the Semperoper in Dresden as Zdenka in Arabella by Richard Strauss, the Bayreuth Festival as the young shepherd in the production of Tannhäuser and the Bavarian State Opera in Munich as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss. Katharina Konradi is also highly sought-after as a concert soloist in major concert halls. She has given concerts with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, the Symphony Orchestra of the MDR or the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Maestri as Thomas Hengelbrock, Manfred Honeck, Paavo Järvi, Kent Nagano, Daniel Harding and Gustavo Dudamel. She also performed in the traditional ZDF Advent Concert 2021 together with the Staatskapelle Dresden under the baton of Petr Popelka in the Frauenkirche Dresden. Lied interpretation is a special passion for the young soprano. She regularly gives recitals at international places as the Schubertiada in Vilabertran, Schubertiade in Hohenems/Schwarzenberg, Wigmore Hall in London, Zarzuela Theatre in Madrid, the Boulez Hall in Berlin or the Konzerthaus in Vienna. She enjoys an artistically fruitful association performing chamber music together with the Trio Gaspard and the Schumann Quartet. In 2016 she won the German Music Competition and was supported until the end of 2021 by the BBC in the context of the New Generation Artist programme.
