Melancholic Far-East-Operetta over New Year

Having been born in Vienna, Kristiane Kaiser is taking over the role of the Viennese aristocratic daughter Lisa in Lehár’s operetta The Land of Smiles at the Cologne Opera. The performances in concert-version conducted by Stefan Soltesz and with Cologne’s rising tenor-star Young Woo Kim as Chinese Prince Sou-Chong are taking place on New Year Eve and on January 4th, 2020.

Kristiane Kaiser enjoys cultivating also her lyric competence continuously in addition to the dramatic roles which she conquered in recent years (Tannhäuser-Elisabeth, Salome, Senta). Thus appearances as Mozart’s Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) at her Vienna home-theatre on December 12th and 17th as well as on January 2nd, 2020 are framing her Cologne guest-appearances.
