Austrian soprano Magdalena Anna Hofmann has in recent years gained wide recognition especially in the German language repertoire, obtained remarkable success at her role debut as Isolde in Tristan und Isolde in Hagen, which earned her a nomination as Best Soprano of the Year by the Opernwelt magazine. Another career-turning debut was Senta in Der fliegende Holländer at the Opéra de Lyon.

After this Bologna Fidelio, Magdalena Anna Hofmann’s upcoming engagements include Sieglinde in Die Walküre with the Cracow Philharmonics, Isabel in Lessons in Love and Violence by George Benjamin at the Theater St. Gallen, and Leonore in Fidelio at the Theater Heidelberg.
