Judit Németh

“Judit Németh as Kundry, sovereign at any time, leaves a strong impression, with dark and soft timbre in Herzeleide-narrative, but also the strength of the dramatic attack.” 

The Hungarian soprano Judit Németh has an extraordinary stage-presence, a beautiful voice and a perfect German.  She is especially known for her intense interpretation of  Wagner’s great heroines, such as Fricka (Hungarian State Opera and Wagner in Budapest Festival, Canadian Opera, Teatro Nacional de Sao Carlos Lisboa, Semperoper Dresden, Deutsche Oper Berlin) Brangäne (Hungarian State Opera and Wagner in Budapest Festival), Venus (Hungarian State Opera, Teatro alla Scala di Milano, Bayreuth Festival, Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona, Nationaltheater Mannheim, Den Norske Opera Oslo), Waltraute (Bayreuth Festival), Ortrud (Bayreuth Festival, Semperoper Dresden) or Kundry (Bayreuth Festival, Hungarian State Opera and Wagner in Budapest Festival, Palau de les Arts Valencia, Richard Wagner Festival Wels). 

In 2007, she made her highly acclaimed debut as Brünnhilde (Die Walküre) in Budapest and sang this role also at the New National Theatre Tokyo and in the new production of Achim Freyer at the Nationaltheater Mannheim. In 2012/13 the Brünnhilde in Siegfried and in Götterdämmerung were following. As frequent guest star at the Hungarian State Opera and the Wagner in Budapest Festival she sang there amongst others Kundry, Fricka, 2. Norn (Götterdämmerung), Phèdre (Hippolyte et Aricie), Amme (Frau ohne Schatten), Emilia (Otello) and Gertrud in Ferenc Erkel's opera Bánk bán. Her plans for the season 2016/17 include Fricka, Kundry, Lucia (Cavalleria rusticana) and again Gertrud (Bánk bán).

Judit Németh has worked with important conductors such as Chris Badea, Richard Bradshaw, Myung-Whun Chung,  Dan Ettinger, Ádám Fischer, Iván Fischer, Lamberto Gardelli, Daniele Gatti, Wolfgang Gönnenwein, Lorin Maazel, Nicholas MacGegan, Christoph Perrick, Helmuth Rilling, Donald Runnicles, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Christian Thielemann, Tamás Vásáry and Sebastian Weigle.
