Andrea Baker

“Andrea Baker had a real triumph as Brangäne. Her exquisite diction and luscious full tones melt to a colorful and complex interpretation of Isoldes maid – It was pure pleasure.”

The mezzo-soprano has a wide repertoire: Amneris, Ortrud, Küsterin, Klytämnestra, Herodias, Magdalene, Amme, Erda, Venus, Waltraute, Fricka and Brangäne, but also Stolzius' mother, Begbick and Auntie (‘Peter Grimes’). She is also preparing Kundry, Venus (Paris version), Kostelnicka and Dalila. As a regular guest at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, she has performed there as Amma und Kader (‘Schönerland’) and returns as Ulrica 2018/19. In 2019/20, she leads the opera ‘Treemonisha’ to Toronto. At the same time, she is very successful with her recital ‘Sing Sistah Sing!’ on the international stages, with which she impressively opens up the repertoire of the “African American female voice”.
