 Update me on new releases by Tomowa-Sintow

Anna Tomowa-Sintow (b1941)

When very young, Tomowa-Sintow portrayed Madama Butterfly’s child at the Stara Zagora Opera, where her mother sang as a member of the chorus. Having begun studying the piano when she was six years old, at sixteen she won a national singing competition and went on to study singing at the Sofia Conservatory with Georgi Zlatev Tcherkin and Katia Spiridonowa, graduating with diplomas in voice and piano: for her final examination she made her stage debut as Tatyana / Eugene Onegin.

Tomowa-Sintow then joined the Leipzig Opera in 1967, making her debut in the company’s Opera Studio as Abigaille / Nabucco. At Leipzig she studied many roles with the company’s general music director, Paul Schmitz, who had worked with Richard Strauss. Her parts at Leipzig included the title roles in Madama Butterfly, Manon Lescaut and Arabella, as well as Violetta / La traviata, Leonora / Il trovatore, Desdemona / Otello and Donna Anna / Don Giovanni. She moved to the Berlin State Opera (East Germany) in 1972, adding to her stage repertoire the Countess / Le nozze di Figaro, Fiordiligi / Così fan tutte, Tatyana, Elisabeth / Tannhäuser, Elsa / Lohengrin, the Marschallin / Der Rosenkavalier and the title parts in Ariadne auf Naxos, Aida and Tosca. Remarkably, she was made a Kammersängerin after only her first year with this company.
