MARIE-SOPHIE POLLAK with Gluck's Orphée et Eurydice in Hamburg

The German soprano Marie-Sophie Pollak, who most recently participated in the ballet Brahms/Balanchine by John Neumeier as a vocal soloist at the Hamburg State Opera, and also took on the soprano solo in Neumeier’s choreographed version of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, now presents herself to the Hamburg audience as L’Amour in Gluck’s French version of the opera of 1774. Last October, she already made a guest appearance in this role with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin under Alexander Liebreich in Katowice – starring alongside Roberta Mameli’s Euridice and Sonia Prina’s Orfeo – where the (Italian) Viennese version of 1762 was performed. Alessandro De Marchi, an expert for historically informed performance practice of the baroque, classical and early romantic eras, conducts.
