Greek-Canadian soprano Andromahi Raptis has been hailed as “a name to remember” (Toute la Culture). She most recently made her debut at the Komische Oper Berlin as the Rooster in the world premiere of the children’s opera Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten. In 2016, she was a member of the studio of l’Opéra de Lyon, France, where she sang the part of Bubikopf in Der Kaiser von Atlantis by Viktor Ullmann.

Other main operatic roles to date include the Controller (Flight), Musetta (La Bohème), Ilia (Idomeneo), Mabel (The Pirates of Penzance) and Amanda (Der Teufel auf Erden), along with Clorinde (Dr. Faust. jr.) with Gärtnerplatztheater. For the 2015 Kurt Weill Festival, she performed Bessie in Mahagonny Songspiel and the Soprano Solo in Royal Palace.  In Toronto she was a regular chorus member of Opera Atelier of Toronto, under the artistic direction of Marshall Pynkoski.

Fascinated by contemporary music, Andromahi has premiered several new works, such as Oriol Cruxient’s Manifest with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra under the baton of Ulf Schirmer and Konstantia Gourzi’s Eros with the Bavarian State Orchestra. In 2014, she sang the Soprano in Claude Vivier’s Kopernikus with the Munich Biennale International Contemporary Opera Festival.

In the concert realm, the young soprano has been heard in Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Daimler Orchestra in Munich and as the first soprano in Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Swabian Oratorio Chorus. She also enriched her connection to German art song at the Franz Schubert Institute in 2012.

After moving to Munich, Germany, in 2013, Andromahi obtained a Master of Voice from the Munich University of Music and Performing Arts as well as a Master of Opera from the Theatre Academy August Everding. She holds a Honours Bachelor of Voice from the University of Toronto, Canada.
