In addition, Ida Aldrian gave her house debut at the Berlin State Opera as Third Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. During the season 2017/2018 she took over the role of Dorabella at very short notice in Herbert Fritsch’s new production of Così fan tutte at the Hamburg State Opera, whose ensemble she has joined shortly after and where she will et al. appear as Hänsel (Hänsel und Gretel), Mrs. Meg Page (Falstaff) and Soeur Mathilde (Dialogues des Carmélites) during the current season.

A much sought-after artist also on the concert stage, Ida Aldrian has so far worked with several European ensembles and orchestras such as the Orchester Wiener Akademie, the Concentus Musicus Wien, the Bach Consort Wien, L’Orfeo Barockorchester, the Haydn and Minetti Quartett, the Capella Leopoldina, the Neue Hofkapelle Graz, Barucco, the Norwegian ensemble Barokksolistene and the French ensemble Pygmalion.

Highlights of her numerous concert appearances throughout Europe include a New Year’s Eve concert with the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra under Kent Nagano, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 under Simone Young and Kent Nagano, Mozart’s Requiem under Pablo Heras-Casado in Salzburg and Mendelssohn’s Elias with the Orquesta Filarmónica de Gran Canaria under Marcus Bosch. Furthermore, she sang in Schumann’s Requiem für Mignon under Cornelius Meister at the Wiener Konzerthaus as well as in Mendelssohn’s Ein Sommernachtstraum under Fabio Luisi at the Wiener Musikverein. She also took part in Claude Debussy’s La Demoiselle élue at the Philharmonie Luxembourg under the baton of Sébastien Rouland.

Martin Haselböck and his Orchester Wiener Akademie invited her to take part in Bach’s St Matthew Passion, St John Passion and Mass in B minor, which took place at the Wiener Musikverein and at Munich’s Herkulessaal. At the styriarte Festival she appeared in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, whereas at the Trigonale Festival she performed several programs as singer in residence. In addition, she appeared as Samischa at the International Bruckner Festival in Telemann’s opera Miriways with Michi Gaigg and her L’Orfeo Barockorchester, followed by Handel’s Solomon and Bach’s St Matthew Passion at the OsterKlang Festival. The Barocktage Melk invited her to take part in Handel’s oratorio Israel in Egypt under the baton of Christopher Moulds.

During the concert season 2019/2020, Ida Aldrian sang the alto solo part in Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with the Jenaer Philharmonie under their GMD Simon Gaudenz. At the Austrian festivals Attergauer Kultursommer, Donaufestwochen im Strudengau und the Musica Sacra Festival in St. Pölten, she furthermore appeared as soloist in Mendelsohn-Bartholdy’s Elias.

Ida Aldrian dedicates herself with great passion to the Lied genre, having so far appeared at Vienna’s and Graz’ Musikverein, at the Ocean Sun Festival and the Staatstheater Nurnberg along with Helmut Deutsch, with whom she gave further recitals at Antwerp’s deSingel, the Deutschlandsberger Klavierfrühling and the Lied festival “Der Zwerg” in Sindelfingen. In autumn 2019, she took part in a gala recital at Schloss Walpersdorf in Lower Austria, along with Konstantin Krimmel and Helmut Deutsch. In the current season, Ida Aldrian will return to the Musikverein Regensburg for a Lied recital with tenor Jan Petryka and pianist Saskia Giorgini. Besides her operatic appearances on the stage of Hamburg’s Staatsoper, worthy of mention is her participation as Floßhilde in the project “Wagner-Lesarten” promoted by Concerto Köln and Kent Nagano, performed in historical performance practice and presented in two concert performances at Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the Kölner Philharmonie.

A small town – nice enough, predictable, nothing doing, lame parties, annoying teachers. Infatuation, jealousy, necking. Here we have Elin and her older sister Jessica: one of them notorious for being the life of the party and hungry for life, the other prematurely staid and the girlfriend of a silent football player. Then there is Agnes. She lives with her overwhelmed single-parent father and spends most of her time in her room, writing pensive poems. Her birthday party turns out a disaster, because only Viktoria shows up, and Agnes can’t stand her. But suddenly, Elin and Jessica arrive. Because of a stupid bet – Elin has been promised money by Jessica if she kisses Agnes – a beautiful and complicated story begins. Suddenly, it’s all about something.
