This Swedish songbird will be singing the role of Judith.
We welcome Charlotte Hellekant to the AtG fam. She is making her debut with us as Judith in Bluebeard’s Castle.
She is known as one of Scandinavia’s leading mezzo-soprano with a career equally successful on both the opera stage and concert platform. She has made appearances globally at notable houses such as the Metropolitan Opera, Opéra de Paris and the Glyndebourne Festival.
Charlotte replaces Adrianne Pieczonka as Judith. Adrianne has withdrawn from the production.
We can’t wait to see Charlotte perform as Judith (a role she has previously performed at the Bergen Festival) in this thrilling reimagination of Bluebeard’s Castle.
Charlotte Hellekant, Mezzo-soprano
A compelling stage performer with a repertoire ranging from the baroque to contemporary classics, Charlotte Hellekant is one of Scandinavia’s leading mezzo-sopranos with a career equally successful on both the opera stage and concert platform. She has made her mark on opera stages on both sides of the Atlantic, notably at the Metropolitan Opera, Opéra national de Paris and Glyndebourne Festival; and has inspired some of the world’s leading composers to write especially for her. This includes Toshio Hosokawa who created the role of Murasame for her in his acclaimed Matsukaze, and subsequently wrote his monodrama The Raven for her. Lyric roles include Charlotte (Werther) with Deutsche Oper Berlin and Carmen with Royal Swedish Opera, whilst Handel interpretations include Ino (Semele) at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées and Cornelia (Giulio Cesare) for Opernhaus Zürich. She appeared as Marguérite in La Fura dels Baus’ spectacular production of La damnation de Faust at Salzburg Festival and sang the role of Judith in Duke Bluebeard’s Castle in concert at the Bergen International Festival.
