Barbara Senator

Soprano

Vita

Born in Leipzig Barbara Senator is actually developing to one of the more interesting full lyric Soprano voices (direction lyric-dramatic) especially for the Romantic repertory. So she already had great success with the roles of the Goose Girl in E.Humperdincks KÖNIGSKINDERN or as Fox in L.Janaceks THE CUNNING LITTLE VIXEN at Semperoper Dresden.

Following postings as a member of the Young Ensembles at the Bayerischen Staatsoper and a member of the Staatsoper Hannover, she was a member of the permanent ensemble at the Semperoper Dresden between 2010 and 2016 where she debuted as Rosina, Komponist, Donna Elvira, Contessa Almaviva and Pamina

Lauded for her beautiful tone, a high musicality and lovely legato culture she currently continues her studies with KS Irmgard Boas and is working as free-lanced artist since season 2016/17.

She has given guest performances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden (LES TROYENS), in der Royal Albert Hall, at the Dutch National Opera (RING DES NIBELUNGEN), at the Glyndebourne Festival (COSI FAN TUTTE, RUSALKA), at the Festival Aix-en-Provence, at the Wiener Festwochen (DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE), at the Bayerischen Staatsoper in Munich (DIDO AND AENEAS), at the Theater Basel (COSÍ FAN TUTTE), at the Opera Vlaanderen (DES KNABEN WUNDERHORN), at the Staatsoperette in Dresden (Contessa d´Almaviva/LE NOZZE DI FIGARO und Sylva Varescu/DIE CSÁRDÁSFÜRSTIN) and at the Theater Erfurt (Donna Elvira/DON GIOVANNI).

Sir Antonio Pappano / Sir Charles Mackerras / Jiri Belohlavek / Ivor Bolten / Zubin Mehta / Daniel Barenboim / Adam Fischer / Jun Märkl / Fabio Luisi / Cornelius Meister / Martin Haselböck / Daniel Harding / Lothar Zagrosek / Ennoch zu Guttenberg / James Gaffigan / Stefan Soltesz / Alessandro de Marchi / Riccardo Frizza / Vladimir Jurowski / Hartmut Hänchen.
