The whole country knows her name and many of the world’s prominent opera houses have her name inscribed in their annales. Erika Miklósa started her career at the Hungarian State Opera at the age of 20, and she has remained loyal to the institute even in the busiest periods of her singing career. The gala to celebrate her 25-year-long career was an enormous event; the 30th anniversary was held among the restrictions of the pandemic, without an audience. Now, the coloratura soprano will meet her audience face to face on three separate occasions. This time, her directness will be paired with a special program: her storytelling will involve music that is especially important to her and that she has never sung before, accompanied by a sole piano, reflecting on the most important stations of her life with the help of a slideshow.
