Greek-Canadian soprano Andromahi Raptis has been hailed as “a name to remember” (Toute la Culture). Currently an ensemble member at the Staatstheater Nürnberg, she will sing Despina (Così fan tutte) and Atalanta (Xerxes), Tangolita (Ball im Savoy) as well as the first soprano in Rihm’s Jakob Lenz. Andromahi debuted in two world premieres last season, at the Komische Oper Berlin as the Rooster in the children’s opera Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten and at the Staatsoper Hamburg as Elisabeth in Jan Dvořák’s Frankenstein, for which she was praised as “a discovery” (Das Opernmagazin).

In 2016, the young soprano was a member of the studio of l’Opéra de Lyon, France, where she portrayed the part of Bubikopf in Der Kaiser von Atlantis by Viktor Ullmann. She took Munich’s Prinzregententheater by storm in 2017 with the demanding part of the Controller in Jonathan Dove’s Flight. Other operatic roles have included Musetta (La Bohème), Ilia (Idomeneo), Mabel (The Pirates of Penzance) and Amanda (Der Teufel auf Erden), along with Clorinde (Dr. Faust jun.) with Gärtnerplatztheater and Johanna (Sweeney Todd) with Oper Halle. For the 2015 Kurt Weill Festival, she performed Bessie in Mahagonny Songspiel and the Soprano Solo in Royal Palace. In Toronto, she was a chorus member with 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 Bayerische Rundfunk Orchester under the baton of Ulf Schirmer as well as Konstantia Gourzi’s Eros with the Bayerische Staatsorchester. In 2014, she sang the Soprano in Claude Vivier’s Kopernikus with the Münchener Biennale International Contemporary Music Theater Festival.

In the concert realm, Andromahi has been heard as the first soprano in Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Schwäbischer Oratorienchor and in Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Daimler Orchester in Munich. She also enriched her connection to German art song at the Franz Schubert Institut in 2012.

After moving to Germany in 2013, Andromahi obtained a Master’s of Voice from the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München as well as a Master’s of Opera from the Theaterakademie August Everding. She holds an Honours Bachelor’s degree in Voice from the University of Toronto, Canada.

“…whoever can handle the coloratura of a modern opera, for example, is also capable of much more. In “Flight”, this pertains to Andromahi Raptis…very sexy, very marvelous.”

"Mention particulière pour Andromahi Raptis, soprano tenant le rôle de la Fille coiffée à la garçonne dont la voix nous a particulièrement marqué avec une très belle projection et un timbre très agréable. Un nom à retenir."

"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."
