German soprano Anna-Luise Wagner recently completed a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, researching seventeenth-century opera singer, writer, and courtesan Margherita Costa. Alongside her studies, Anna worked as dramaturg and translator on high-profile opera productions in Germany, Austria, Italy, and the US. She also founded Marginalia, an interdisciplinary performance collective bringing academic research to life on stage. As a soprano, onstage highlights include Fatime/Les Indes galantes (Ensemble OrQuesta), Susanna/Le nozze di Figaro (HGO), Clorinda/La Cenerentola (Random Opera), The Artist/hunger by Joanna Ward (Edinburgh Festival Fringe), as well as several roles with Cambridge University Opera including Cleopatra/Giulio Cesare, Micaëla/Carmen, Adina/L’elisir d’amore, title role/Sāvitri, and Despina/Così fan tutte. Anna also created the title role of Green Opera’s Fillu, a Lieder-opera telling the love story of Eugenie Schumann, daughter of Clara and Robert, and the Austrian soprano Marie Fillunger. Upcoming roles include Amore & Damigella/L’incoronazione di Poppea with Ensemble OrQuesta at the Grimeborn Opera Festival.
