Chen Reiss

Soprano Chen Reiss has established a strongly-acclaimed and distinctive career, enchanting audiences with “one of the most perfect Strauss voices one could wish for” (Classical Source), “a voice of silver brightness and clarity” (Bachtrack) with “immaculately produced and enticing tone matched by superb musicianship” (Opera News, USA).

Born in Israel, she came to prominence as a member of the ensemble of the Bavarian State Opera under the music directorship of Zubin Mehta, and has for a number of years been a resident artist at the Vienna State Opera. She has also performed leading parts at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Teatro alla Scala, Semperoper Dresden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Netherlands Opera, Wiener Festwochen, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Opera Company of Philadelphia and the Israeli Opera.

Recent highlights include her debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden as Zerlina in Kasper Holten’s production of “Don Giovanni” conducted by Marc Minkowski, her debut at Teatro Real in Madrid and Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona as Ginevra (“Ariodante”) under William Christie, and her role debuts as Susanna (“Le Nozze di Figaro”) and Aennchen (“Der Freischütz”) at the Vienna State Opera, and as Liu (“Turandot”) with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. She appeared in concert with signature repertoire including performances of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the Munich Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel, Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Daniele Gatti, and made her debuts with the Chicago Symphony under Charles Dutoit, the Philharmonia Orchestra under Lahav Shani, and the Berlin Radio Symphony under Vladimir Jurowski.
