ABOUT

Soprano Anush Hovhannisyan [pron: anoush hovanisian] is praised as "hypnotically striking" (The Arts Desk), "glamorous, excitingly temperamental" (The Sunday Times) and her voice as "rich and vibrant, smoky and spiritual" (Music OMH).

Anush studied singing at the Yerevan State Conservatory and at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Winner of First and Public Prizes, as well as a test Deutsche Grammophon recording contract, at the 2016 Stella Maris Competition, and of the 2014 Concours Suisse Ernst Haefliger Competition, Anush was also a member of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme in Royal Opera House Covent Garden 2013-2015.

Her performances, except of the variety of roles on the ROH, have also included Lucilla (La scala di seta) at the Linbury Studio Studios, the soprano solos in Gloria for the Royal Ballet and Verdi Requiem for the Royal Opera House’s Learning and Participation department on tour in France, Sitâ (Le Roi de Lahore) for Chelsea Opera Group, Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni) at the Teatro Verdi, Trieste, and Anitra (Peer Gynt) with the Philharmonia Orchestra, Lady in Waiting (Macbeth) for the Royal Opera’s 2015 tour to Japan. Her recordings include Songs by Scriabin for Decca’s complete piano anthology of his music.

Conductors with whom she has worked include Jonathan Santagada, Renato Balsadonna, Semyon Bychkov, Gianluigi Gelmetti, Nicola Luisotti, Daniel Oren, Mark Wigglesworth, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Sir Antonio Pappano.

Current engagements include Adina (L’elisir d’amore) in Florence, the title role in Maria Stuarda at the Stadttheater Klagenfurt, Shostakovich Symphony No. 14 with the Southbank Sinfonia, Verdi Requiem at City Halls, Glasgow, the opening of the 2017 Al Bustan Festival in Beirut, and Emma (Khovanshchina) for her Proms debut in Royal Albert Hall.
