BIOGRAPHY

The young austrian mezzo-soprano Patricia Nolz is right now a student at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Since 2019 she has been studying for a Master's degree in Lied and Oratorio with Florian Boesch and Claudia Visca. She is the winner of the Casinos Austria Rising Star Award 2019 and was awarded at competitions such as the ÖJAB Music Competition Vienna and the Osaka Music Competition in Japan. In 2019 she was an Anny Felbermayer scholarship holder.

On the opera stage Patricia Nolz has so far performed at the Schönbrunn Palace Theatre (Hänsel in Hänsel und Gretel, Filipjewna in Eugene Onegin, title role in Oreste, Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro, Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia), among others, at the Arnold Schönberg Center, at the Clairmont Concert Hall Tel Aviv, at Schloss Perchtoldsdorf (Dido in Dido and Aeneas), in Soligen and Remscheid (Bradamante in Alcina), as well as at the Herbsttage Blindenmarkt (Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus).

In autumn 2020 she was highly acclaimed for her excellent debut as Cherubino in a new production of Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro at the Theater an der Wien, conducted by Stefan Gottfried and directed by Alfred Dorfer. After two years in the Opera Studio of the Vienna State Opera, where she celebrated her first successes as Cherubino in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro, and as Zerlina in a new production of Mozart's Don Giovanni under the direction of Philippe Jordan, she will join the ensemble of the Vienna State Opera from the 2022-2023 season. Patricia Nolz will appear in roles such as Zerlina/Don Giovanni, La Musica & La Speranza in Monteverdi's L'Orfeo, as Rosina/Il barbiere di Siviglia, Wellgunde/Rheingold & Götterdämmerung. In the new production of Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro conducted by Philippe Jordan and staged by Barrie Kosky, she will take on the role of Cherubino and in the new production of Strauss's Salome she will embody the Page. Another highlight in the 2022/2023 season is her debut as Rosina in a new production of Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia at the Opéra national de Lorraine in Nancy.

Patricia Nolz has performed in numerous concerts and is an accomplished lied singer. Recent highlights have included Beethoven's IX Symphony with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by Karina Canellakis, Bach's B minor Mass with the Ensemble Barucco under Heinz Ferlesch, Mozart & Haydn arias with the Concentus Musicus and Stefan Gottfried at the Harnoncourt Days in St. Georgen, her debut at the Vienna Musikverein with Purcell's Fairy Queen with the Concentus Musicus and conducted by Stefan Gottfried, as well as a benefit gala in aid of war refugees from Ukraine at the Vienna Stadthalle, which was broadcast on ORF III. Future highlights include her participation in a Brahms evening as part of the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, as well as Bach's St. John Passion with the Concentus Musicus conducted by Stefan Gottfried at the Vienna Musikverein.
