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.  In 2009 she began her vocal training with Julie Kaufmann in Berlin and subsequently completed her master’s degree in lied interpretation with Christiane Iven and Donald Sulzen at the Munich Academy of Music and Theatre. Master-classes with Helmut Deutsch and Klesie Kelly-Moog gave Katharina Konradi further musical and artistic momentum in developing her career.
For the 2015/16 season Katharina Konradi joined the ensemble of the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden for three years, where she sang many important soprano roles, including Pamina, Gretel, Adele, Susanna, Zerlina and Nannetta.  Following her remarkable debut in Hamburg (Ännchen in Weber’s “Der Freischütz”), Konradi joined the ensemble of the Hamburg State Opera at the beginning of the 2018/19 season, and retains a close association there.  In the same season she made her debut as Zdenka in “Arabella by Richard Strauss at the Semperoper in Dresden; in summer 2019 this was followed by her debut at the Bayreuth Festival as the young shepherd in the new production of “Tannhäuser” (stage director: Tobias Kratzer; conductor: Valery Gergiev). She also sang one of Klingsor’s flower maidens in “Parsifal” (conductor: Semyon Bychkov). In the summer of 2021 Katharina Konradi returns to the Bayreuth Festival again in the role of the young shepherd. She made her house debut at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich as Sophie in the new production of “Der Rosenkavalier” in March 2021 (stage director: Barry Kosky; conductor: Vladimir Jurowski).  This was streamed online and broadcast live on ARTE, thereby achieving widespread public attention despite restrictions due to the Corona pandemic.
