Ditte Højgaard Andersen
The Danish soprano Ditte Højgaard Andersen is one of Scandinavia’s leading coloratura sopranos. She holds Baroque music close to her heart, but during the last years she has developed her repertoire to include both Mozart and the romantic repertoire.
Ditte started her career as a principal soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin (2006-08) where her highlights included Sophie/DER ROSENKAVALIER, Susanna/LE NOZZE DI FIGARO, Fiaker-Mili/ARABELLA, Waldvogel/SIEGFRIED, Lisa/LA SONNAMBULA, Pepa/TIEFLAND and a staged performance of Carmina Burana.
Future engagements include Eurilla in Haydn’s ORLANDO PALADINO at the Drottningholm Festival in Stockholm, Mozart’s MASS IN C MINOR in Frankfurt, Toulouse, Grenoble, Lyon, Krakow, Budapest and Tokyo with Les Musiciens du Louvre and the conductor Marc Minkowski, Rosmene in Handel’s IMENEO in Hamburg with the conductor Fabio Biondi as well as Bach’s MASS IN B MINOR in Vienna, Essen, Amsterdam and Lausanne with the conductor Marc Minkowski
Ditte has recorded Servillia/LA CLEMENZA DI TITO with Adam Fischer, Bauci in Gluck’s BAUCI E FILEMONE and Cirene /ARISTEO with Christophe Rousset, Artenice in Terradella’s SESOSTRI and a cd with arias and cantatas by Italian baroque composers for the record label Berlin Classics.
In 2004 Ditte graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Opera in Copenhagen with Susanna Eken as her voice coach.
