Ann Hallenberg: first global ambassador

We are delighted to announce that at our London launch on 1 October, Ann Hallenberg was inaugurated into our Hall of Fame as our first global ambassador, representing her native Sweden. Ann has regularly been described as the “world’s best mezzo-soprano” and gave a sublimely mesmerising performance as she sang gratis at our launch, despite having been away from home for three weeks and suffering from an agonizing dislocated knee. That’s how much the Teatro San Cassiano project means to her. Tack Ann!

Ann Hallenberg regularly appears in opera houses such as Teatro alla Scala Milan, Teatro Real Madrid, Theater an der Wien, Opernhaus Zürich, Opéra National Paris, Théâtre de La Monnaie Brussels, Bayerische Staatsoper München and Royal Swedish Opera.

Equally at home on the concert platform she has built an unusually vast concert repertoire that spans music from the early 17th Century up to contemporary works.

Ann Hallenberg frequently collaborates with conductors such as Fabio Biondi, William Christie, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Emmanuelle Haïm, Paavo Järvi, Louis Langrée, Paul McCreesh, Marc Minkowski, Riccardo Muti, Kent Nagano, Sir Roger Norrington, Sir Antonio Pappano and Christophe Rousset.

She has recorded more than 40 CD and DVD.
