Anna Prohaska

The Austrian soprano Anna Prohaska has sung many tragic heroine roles. Prohaska loves strong characters with a flaw. Loves drama, minor keys, and above all death scenes. All of these elements, but also fun and seduction come together in the programme Dido and Cleopatra.

With Il Giardino Armonico led by recorder player Giovanni Antonini she sings these two legendary rulers.

This concert took place on 27th September 2016 in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
