Annina Gieré – Lyric Soprano
Annina Gieré (*1991, Zurich) is a multi-faceted artist: first and foremost a classical singer and active on the opera stage, but also at home as an actress on the theatre stage, in the song and concert repertoire and also in cross-over style.
Annina studied classical singing at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne with Frédéric Gindraux, completed her Master’s in Advanced Vocal Studies at the Wales International Academy of Voice in Cardiff/UK with Dennis O'Neill and is currently being trained vocally by Heidi Wölnerhanssen.
Active as a singer and actress in Switzerland and abroad, her performances have taken her to Italy, France, Spain, England, Denmark, the Netherlands, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, the USA and Colombia.
Among her opera roles already performed on stage are Susanna (Mozart, Le Nozze di Figaro), Ilia (Mozart, Idomeneo), Fiordiligi (Mozart Così fan tutte), Arminda (Mozart, La Finta Giardiniera), Giulietta (Bellini, I Capuleti e i Montecchi), Musetta (Puccini, La Bohème), Manon (Massenet, Le portrait de Manon; Manon), La dame blanche (Boieldieu, La dame blanche), Émilie (Rameau, Les Indes galantes) and others.
Annina also travels regularly as an actress, especially in plays in the style of Commedia dell'arte, in German, French, Italian, Spanish and English, often with ArscomicA side by side with Maestro Antonio Fava.
In addition, Annina enthusiastically devotes time to developing her own projects, such as currently a literary-musical song recital around Goethe's character "Mignon" from Wilhelm Meister's apprenticeship years, or a French programme with accordion - a dialogue between French baroque music and chanson.
Also worthy of note in Annina’s career is her participation as the sole singer and actress in Daniel Ernst's Fernwehoper, a virtual reality computer game that has won numerous prizes around the world.
Annina is fluent in German, English, French, Spanish and Italian. Apart from her profession - but often integrated into it - she loves dance, languages, Latin American boleros, Greece and chocolate!
