Agnes Selma Weiland
Agnes Selma Weiland is an exciting, young dramatic voice, who was most recently heard in August of 2019 in the role of Aida at the Tiroler Festspiele Austria. An audience favorite at the Festspiele, in past seasons she has also sung Elisabeth in Wagner’s Tannhäuser, Helmwige in Die Walküre, the Third Norn in Die Götterdämmerung, and Elsa in Lohengrin. Earlier this season she was heard as Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus at the Mittelsächsisches Theater Döbeln.
In past seasons Ms. Weiland has appeared as the Erste Dame in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, and as Leonora in Verdi’s Il Trovatore at Theater Basel, where the soprano also sang Sieglinde in Wagner’s Die Walküre and Brünnhilde in Siegfried. Oper Leipzig saw her as Susanna in Hindemith’s Sancta Susanna, and she appeared as Ratasata/3 Mädchen, and in Hindemith’s Das Nusch Nuschi at Theater Bonn. At Opéra National de Lyon, the soprano was heard as Nella in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, and Susanna in Sancta Susanna. At Theater Bremen Ms. Weiland was heard as Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Erste Dame in Die Zauberflöte, Ghita in Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg, and as Rosalinde in Strauss’ Die Fledermaus. Theater an der Rott delighted in Ms. Weiland, an exceptional actor as well as singer, and her edgy portrayal of Zelda Fitzgerald in the world premiere of Zelda, which garnered great critical acclaim.
No stranger to the concert stage, Ms. Weiland has most recently appeared as soprano soloist in the Fauré Requiem in Potsdam, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem at Palais des Beaux Arts Brussels, Belgium, and at the Tiroler Festspiele in Austria.
