Soprano Judith van Wanroij joins Interartists Amsterdam for general managementNovember 19th 2020
We are delighted to welcome Judith van Wanroij to our Vocal & Opera roster for worldwide management, starting immediately! For the French-speaking territories, we collaborate with Judith's long-time agent Florence Brunel.
Dutch soprano Judith van Wanroij is “renowned for her intensely dramatical interpretations of rediscovered and less-known operas.” She is praised for conveying poetry and its colours in an astonishing way.
Since her debut at Opéra de Lyon in the roles of Virtù en Drusilla in L’Incoronzione di Poppea, she has performed numerous roles at leading theatres such as Teatro Real Madrid, Dutch National Opera, La Monnaie Lincoln Center New York, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Opéra national du Rhin, Opéra Royal de Versailles, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Theater Basel and the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence.
Judith van Wanroij studied with Margreet Honig at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and De Nederlandse Opera Academie. She was a first prize winner at the 2003 Erna Spoorenberg Vocalisten Presentation and took part in the Jardin des Voix 2005, the vocal academy of Les Arts Florissants and William Christie.
The core of her repertoire consists of, but is not limited to, French and Italian baroque music, French romantic repertoire, and Mozart’s vocal works. A selection of her main roles includes Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Ilia in Idomeneo and the title roles in Rossi’s Orfeo and Lemoyne’s Phèdre.
In the 2020/21 season, she sings the title role in Grety’s Andromaque at Opéra de Saint-Étienne and she revives the role of Erste Dame in McBurney’s production of Die Zauberflöte at Theater Basel. On the concert stage she will perform the role of Zirphile in Rameau’s Archante et Céphise under the baton of Alexis Kossenko, the role of Athénais in Hahn’s La Carmélite with l’Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse, Ilia (Idomeneo) with Les Talens Lyriques at the Mozartfest Würzburg. This season she has various recording projects, including Les Fêtes d’Hébé with Orfeo Orchestra in Budapest and Demarest’s Didon with Le Concert Spirituel, followed by a concert performance at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées.
Last season, she received much critical acclaim for her performances of the title role of Lemoyne’s Phèdre with the Orfeo Orchestra, released on CD by Palazzetto Bru Zane. The press went wild as Judith “leaves aside the ‘nice girls’ to whom the beauty of her timbre seems to be destined, she knows how to chisel her text in the tragic language, translating the heroine's suffering into her body.” In 2018, she had another major recording success in the title role of Alceste by Lully with Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques. The disc was nominated for a Grammy Award in the category ‘Best Opera Recording’.
As a singer with a broad concert repertoire, Judith van Wanroij is in high-demand as a soloist, having recently performed Bach’s oratorios with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orquestra Simfònica Illes Balears at the Auditorium de Palma de Mallorca with Jonathan Cohen, among others. Last season, she toured with the Camerata of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Spain performing lieder by Mahler and Berg, having previously sung Strauss Vier letzte Lieder with the ensemble.
Her ever-expanding discography includes many lesser-known operas, such as Monteclair’s Jephté with the Orfeo Orchestra and Purcell Choir for the label Glossa, Salieri’s Tarare, Les Horaces and Les Danaïdes all with Les Talens Lyriques for Aparté, Gounod’s Le Tribut de Zamora with the Münchner Rundfunkorchester for Palazzetto Bru Zane. She also recorded Gounod’s Cantatas and Sacred music with the Brussels Philharmonic and Flemish Radio Choir also for Palazzetto Bru Zane and Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Camerata RCO for Gutman Records, among many other works.
