Ivi Karnezi

The Greek-Norwegian soprano Ivi Karnezi sings Rosalinde in our brand new version of Die Fledermaus spring 2024.

The Greek-Norwegian soprano Ivi Karnezi studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, as well as at Hochschule für Musik "Hanns Eisler" in Berlin. Her professional debut was at Opéra de Lyon in 2010. This lead to her first leading role as Donna Anna in Mozart's opera Don Giovanni at Opernfestival Gut Immling in Bavaria in Germany. Later she became a member of the soloist ensemble at Staatstheater Braunschweig (Braunswick) where she made large role debut as Elisabetta di Valois in Don Carlo by Verdi, Vitellia in Mozart's La clemenza di Tito, Mimi in Puccini's La bohème, Micaela in Bizet's Carmen, Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow by Lehár – and as Tatjana in Eugen Onegin by Tchaikovsky.

In 2021 Karnezi had her debut as Aida at Den Jyske Opera in Denmark, and afterwards, was invited to sing Aida at Staatstheater Braunschweigs Open Air festival the next year (2022).

Autumn 2022 she attended galla concerts in Trondheim together with Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, before she visited Bergen National Opera for the first time, as the Mother in Menotti's family opera Amahl and the Night Visitors (December 2022).

This spring (2024) Ivi Karnezi was Rosalinde in our brand new version of Die Fledermaus, and in December we can look forward to meeting her again, as the Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors.
