Canadian-Greek soprano Andromahi Raptis has been hailed as “a name to remember” (Toute la Culture). Currently based in Munich, Germany, she is pursuing a Masters in Opera at the August Everding Theater Academy, where she is studying with Ingrid Kaiserfeld. In 2016, she was a member of the Opera Studio of L'Opéra National de Lyon, France in Der Kaiser von Atlantis by Viktor Ullmann, where she sang the part of Bubikopf. 

The young soprano's other main operatic roles to date include Musetta (La Bohème), Ilia (Idomeneo), Mabel (The Pirates of Penzance), the Soprano (Kopernikus), Amanda (Der Teufel auf Erden), as well as Clorinde (Dr. Faust jun.) with Gärtnerplatz Theater. For the 2015 Kurt Weill Festival, she performed Bessie in Mahagonny Songspiel and the Soprano Solo in Royal Palace. Andromahi sang Pamina and Papagena in a children's production of Papageno und die kleine Zauberflöte with Concierto München. She was also a regular chorus member with Opera Atelier of Toronto, under the artistic direction of Marshall Pynkoski. 

Her fascination with contemporary music only continues to grow. In 2015, she gave the world premiere of Konstantia Gourzi's Eros with the Bavarian State Orchestra. With the Munich Biennale International Contemporary Opera Festival, she has performed the world premiere of Phone Call to Hades and sung the Soprano in Claude Viver’s Kopernikus.

She completed a Masters in Voice at the Munich University of Music and Performing Arts and holds an Honours Bachelor of Music in Voice from the University of Toronto, Canada, where she studied with Lorna MacDonald.

In February 2017, Andromahi will sing the Controller in Jonathan Dove's Flight with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Ulf Schirmer at Prinzregententheater in Munich, Germany.

"A particular mention for Andromahi Raptis, the soprano in the role of the Girl with Bobbed Hair, whose voice made a particular mark on us with a very beautiful projection and a very lovely timbre. A name to remember."

   - Elodie Martinez, Toute la Culture
 

 

 "...the ravashing and crystal-clear soprano Andromahi Raptis..."

   - Beate Langenbruch, Bachtrack

 

Praise for Musetta

"Solely Musetta, sung by the young Greek-Canadian soprano Andromahi Raptis, felt the enjoyment of being on stage. In high-heels and leopard print she was the coquette seductress, with a flexibly capable voice and a secure top."      -Münchener Merkur


"Andromahi Raptis as Musetta, totally Moulin Rouge in black lace and leopard print, guarantees goose bumps, vocally as well as optically. Her waltz is guaranteed to remain unforgotten by the audience."     -Münchener Merkur


"When was the frivolous and ultimately compassionate Musetta so sexy and could furthermore sing so erotically charged as Andromahi Raptis?"     -Süddeutsche Zeitung
