Anna Prohaska gives her Dutch opera debut after a recent success with arias for “Dido and Cleopatra” the the Concertgebouw’s Groote Zaal. She appears in Handel’s staged Oratorio “Jephtha” as the title character’s daughter Iphis, who is to be sacrificed by her warrior father to win the war. Having worked with Claus Guth on revivals of his Don Giovanni and Così fan Tutte at the Salzburg Festival it was especially exciting to create a new character from scratch with him.  Ivor Bolton conducts the baroque orchestra Concerto Köln who she has just collaborated with on Rameau’s “Les Indes Galantes” at the Munich Opernfestspiele last summer after numerous concerts in Salzburg.  She is also re-united with friend and long-time colleague Bejun Mehta from Agrippina and Orféo ed Euridice (Staatsoper Berlin).
