Welcome

Louise Kemény, soprano

Louise Kemény is a British-Austrian opera singer and concert soprano.

Most recent opera engagements include house debuts at Opernhaus Zurich in a staged production of Monteverdi’s Vespers, conducted by Riccardo Minasi, at Opéra de Lille as Helena in a new production of Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Laurent Pelly and as Seleuce/Tolomeo at Handelfestspiele Karlsruhe, conducted by Federico Maria Sardelli.

In the season 2023/24, Louise Kemény will give her house and role debut at Theater Basel as Agathe/Der Freischütz and at Wiener Kammeroper in Richard III., a pastiche based on Shakespeare’s play with music by Henry Purcell. In concert, she will perform Stravinsky’s Les Noces with Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal under Kent Nagano, Bach’s Weihnachtsoratorium with the Orchestra Sinfónica de Navarro in Pamplona, as well as appear at Internationale Händelfestspiele Göttingen, the London Handel Festival and perform works by Mozart in New Year’s concerts with Het Residentie Orkest and Richard Egarr.

“a beguilingly flowery timbre, radiant upper register
and a very moving voice”

  • Ach! Ich fühl’s#tbt one of the boldest starts to any aria I’ve ever done - around 18 seconds in there’s an audible difference when I turn around, from singing in a tunnel to an opera house - facing upstage, no monitor, no audible foldback, singing into the distant point of extreme perspective that formed the set……I’m reminded of this because my godmother came to see Der Freischütz last weekend in Basel. She asked me what has been my favourite ever thing to sing… and it’s still this. I have loved every role and character I’ve been able to explore (musically and dramatically) but something about Pamina is just synonymous for me with the pleasure of singing and making music.(It absolutely blows my mind that with all of its innovation and daring, Der Freischütz had its premiere just 30 years after Die Zauberflöte 🤯)Like Der Freischütz, this was a role debut AND revival production. Unlike Der Freischütz we had 3 days rehearsal. I was so incredibly fortunate to work with @hermeshelfricht - his generosity and vulnerability (particularly in this aria) were amazingly wise (beyond his years!) so calming, so inspiring. I think my godmother may have been at this performance too. Here’s to all the extraordinary people in our lives who travel great distances to support us. Thank you.
