News & Reviews

We are pleased to announce that the exciting young Austrian mezzo-soprano Sophie Rennert will sing the role of Giacinta in Classical Opera’s performances of Mozart’s La finta semplice at Birmingham Town Hall (2 June) and the Queen Elizabeth Hall (6 & 8 June). She replaces the originally advertised Emily Edmonds, who has had to withdraw for personal reasons.

Sophie graduated with distinction from the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts, and has won several awards, including 2nd Prize and Audience Prize at the 2016 International Cesti Competition for baroque opera in Innsbruck. In 2013 she was selected for the prestigious Young Singers Project at the Salzburg Festival, and from 2014 to 2016 she was a member of the Konzert Theater in Bern, where her roles included Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro), Dorabella (Così fan tutte) and Sesto (La clemenza di Tito). She has worked with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Camerata Salzburg and the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, and she made her UK début in December 2017 in recital with Graham Johnson at Wigmore Hall.
