Cyndia Sieden

Coloratura soprano Cyndia Sieden moves between the Baroque, classical, and contemporary repertoire with extraordinary accomplishment and considerable acclaim. She has sung with many of the most prestigious symphony orchestras in the world, including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Atlanta Symphony, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and at New York’s Mostly Mozart Festival. Sieden is also much in demand for Carmina Burana, the oratorios of Handel, Mozart, and Haydn, works of Bach, Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, and concert performances of operas, including most of Mozart’s oeuvre, Candide, and Ariadne auf Naxos.

Sieden has performed at most of the world’s greatest opera houses, including Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper, Paris’ Opéra Bastille, Barcelona’s Gran Teatre de Liceu, Brussels’ La Monnaie, and London’s English National Opera, as well as in Beijing and Australia. Her Metropolitan Opera debut was an acclaimed performance as Berg’s Lulu. She frequently performs Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos (Munich, Japan, Vienna) as well as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier (Paris’ Châtelet) and Aminta in Die schweigsame Frau (Palermo). Her performance in the high-flying role of Ariel in the premiere of Thomas Adès’ The Tempest at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden garnered her rave reviews. London’s Daily Telegraph said “her ability to keep control over the stratospherically high writing for Ariel [is] astonishing.” The Times called her “sensational,” and The New Yorker, “Brilliant.” She has garnered equally enthusiastic acclaim for her portrayal of The Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and as Blondchen in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Her Archiv recordings of these two works, both conducted by John Eliot Gardiner, affirmed her status as one of the preeminent Mozart interpreters of her generation.
