Soprano Siobhan Stagg is one of the most outstanding young artists to emerge from Australia in recent years. Christa Ludwig has described Siobhan’s voice as “one of the most beautiful I’ve ever heard.” Siobhan began her career as a Young Artist at the Salzburg Festival (2013) and at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (2013-2015). As word of her talent spread across Europe, Siobhan was quickly engaged for important debuts at the Hamburg State Opera, Berliner Philharmoniker, Bayerische Staatsoper, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Dutch National Opera (Amsterdam), BBC Proms and London’s Royal Opera House Covent Garden, among others. Siobhan opened the 2017/18 season to great acclaim as Pamina in Die Zauberflöte at London’s Royal Opera House, Covent Garden: “Best of all was Siobhan Stagg”…” a glorious performance”
… In the current season 2018/19, Siobhan earned accolades for a “terrific U.S. debut” in the title role of Massenet’s Cendrillon (Cinderella) at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, critics praising her “absolutely stunning and powerful voice, coupled with her undeniably magnetic stage presence.” The same season, Siobhan made a “triumphant” Australian operatic debut as Mélisande in Pelléas et Mélisande for Victorian Opera, nominated for Best Female Lead in the 2019 Green Room Awards. “It’s not often a soprano comes along with the ability to sing with both thrilling frisson and total tranquility … Siobhan Stagg’s Mélisande was transcendent.”
In 2019 Siobhan is Artist-in-Association with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. She remains a principal soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, performing Adele Die Fledermaus, Gilda Rigoletto and Micaëla Carmen. Other current highlights include Pamina at the Hamburg State Opera, Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier at Opernhaus Zürich, a return to the Salzburg Festival and a debut at Festival Aix-en-Provence.
