Opera répétiteur, pianist
Katalin Zsubrits is a Hungarian pianist from Sopron. She earned her repetiteur diploma in Cardiff, UK in 2021 (University of Wales – Wales Academy of Voice & Dramatic Arts).
Between 2008 and 2019 she spent a total of eight years in the Middle East (Kuwait, Qatar, UAE – Dubai and Abu Dhabi) as a solo pianist. It is almost comical that it was in Abu Dhabi that she realized that she had to work with opera singers.
In 2014 Katalin was the first musician in the UAE who got a full time contract as a musician at a hospital. Ever since then it became a tradition in the UAE that hospitals provide live music performances in the belief that music has healing effects and can create a stress-free atmosphere. Katalin gave recitals in the USA, Hungary, UK, UAE and Indonesia. She started working at the Hungarian State Opera House in 2021.
In 2022 she created the Opera Studio Sopron Young and Emerging Artists Program to organize opera masterclasses by known Hungarian opera singers.
