Gun-Brit Barkmin debuts in Paris

21 April 2017

Gun-Brit Barkmin makes her Opéra National de Paris debut as Marie in Christoph Marthaler’s production of Wozzeck. Conducted by Michael Schønwandt, performances run from 26 April to 15 May.

One of Gun-Brit’s signature roles, her interpretation of Marie under Fabio Luisi at Opernhaus Zürich in Andreas Homoki’s distinctive production has recently been released on DVD (Accentus Music), and she next appears in this role in the autumn at Staatsoper Hamburg under General Music Director Kent Nagano. Next up for Gun-Brit is a concert performance as Strauss’ Salome with Charles Dutoit in Shanghai and Strauss’ Vier letzte Lieder with the Seattle Symphony and Thomas Dausgaard.
