Vera Trifanova Resume

      At http://www.veratrifanova.com is a new site of Vera Trifanova, coloratura soprano. Apart from information common to such resources, such as the bioghraphy, the repertoire, concert schedule and photos, the site features a large number of the recordings and videos of the singer's concert performances in avi, mp3, mpeg and wma formats.

Among those are such classical coloratura arias as Mozart's Koenigin Der Nacht, Hofman's Olympia, R. Strauss' Zerbinetta, Johan Strauss' Adele as well as such jewels of oratorial and baroque music as Handel's Gloria In Excelsis Deo, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, Bach's Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen and Melani's cantata Qual mormorio giocondo.

Vera Trifanova graduated cum laude from the Mannheim Opera School in Germany. While she was studying there, in 2003, she became a finalist of the Viotii contest in Italy, then a semi-finalist of the Queen Elizabeth contest in Belgium in 2004 and debuted in the opera theater in Baden-Baden and Heidelberg Staatstheater.

The singer often takes her opera and baroque programmes on the road with orchestras directed by such conductors as Klaus Arp, Heinz-Rüdiger Drengemann, Klaus Eisenmann, Ronald Techet, Peter Schumann, Markus Zepp and Volker Christ.

At a jubilee festival in Zwingenberg in 2007, Vera performed the aria of Koenigin Der Nacht in Mozarts's Die Zauberflute. The next year she performed in the premiere of «Hands in the cave» by the contemporary composer Carola Gribari in Heidelberg.

This year Vera Trifanova is graduating from the Musikhochschule Mannheim post-graduate department.
