ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:

Aleksandr Antonenko has conquered the world's most famous opera-theatre and concert halls over the last ten years, performing almost 30 roles for tenors. Since 2004, he has become the most internationally renowned Latvian tenor, who has successfully debuted in Berlin's operas, Dresden Semperoper, Oslo and Stockholm Royal Opera, Geneva, Paris, Rome and Munich Opera Houses, Vienna State Opera, London Covent Garden and New York Metropolitan Theatre. Led by conductor Riccardo Muti, Antonenko's debut as Otello in the prestigious Salzburg Festival in 2008 was a success. A year later, he successfully debuted at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York, where Antonenko now returns regularly, playing the leading tenor roles.


German mezzo-soprano Deniz Uzun is the 37th finalist of the International Belvedere Competition for young opera soloists. She had already performed at the Baden-Baden Festival with Berlin Philharmonic during her studies, playing the role of Armelinda in Jules Massenet's "Cendrillon". In 2013, the young singer was invited to participate in the Heidelberg Spring Festival at the Lied Academy, to work with Thomas Hampson and Thomas Quasthoff. Deniz has also sung in the productions of Bavarian State Opera, and has been a soloist of the Zurich Opera since 2016.
