Ann Hallenberg


The Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg regularly appears at major opera houses and festivals, including  at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Venice’s Teatro la Fenice, Madrid’s Teatro Real, Theater an der Wien, Opernhaus Zürich, Opéra National Paris, Théâtre de La Monnaie Brussels, Netherlands Opera Amsterdam, Bayerische Staatsoper München, Staatsoper Berlin, the Salzburg Festival, and the Edinburgh Festival.

Her operatic repertoire includes a large number of roles in operas by Rossini, Mozart, Gluck, Handel, Vivaldi, Monteverdi, Purcell, Bizet, and Massenet. Having built an unusually vast concert repertoire that spans music from the early-17th to 20th centuries, Hallenberg is also highly sought after as a concert singer and she frequently appears in concert halls throughout Europe and North America.

Hallenberg has performed with many of the world’s great orchestras and enjoys a special and close collaboration with the
ensembles Les Talens Lyriques, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, and Europa Galante. She regularly works with conductors including Fabio Biondi, Gianluca Capuano, William Christie, Teodor Currentzis, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, and Emmanuelle Haïm.

She has recorded more than 40 CDs and DVDs. At the 2016 International Opera Awards in London, her solo CD Agrippina won the award for Best Operatic Recital. This was her second win in the category, following her victory in 2014.
