In 2010, she sang her first role, Clotilde (‘Pollicino’, H.W Henze), at the Weimar Opera House and in 2014 sang Sandrina (‘La Finta Giardiniera’, Mozart) and Rotkäppchen (‘Das neue Rotkäppchen’, Su-un Lee) in Deutsche Oper Berlin.

Her predilection for music of the 17th and 18th century led up to work with Christophe Rousset, Luke Green, Sandrine Piau and Andreas Scholl. She sang Bach Cantates with the Alte Akademie Orchester Vorpommern (Germany) and the ‘Stabat Mater’ of Pergolesi with Impulsia Ensemble in Berlin and has also performed the ‘Oratorio de Noel’ of Saint-Saëns with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra.
