After an intense first 6 months at the Wiener Staatsoper, the season came to a close for Margaret with the final performance if the Tempest at the end of June. During the period of January-June Margaret performed the roles of Tebaldo in Don Carlos and Waltraute in Die Walküre as part of Wagner’s Ring Cycle. She also learned and understudied many roles including Miranda in the Tempest, Charlotte in Werther, Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier, Flora in La Traviata and Fenena in Nabucco. Needless to say, the summer holiday brought a welcome chance to rest!
Now as we head to the beginning of the 15/16 season, Margaret is thoroughly enjoying her break, but is also preparing her new repertoire including Hänsel in Hänsel und Gretel, Smeton in Anna Bolena, Tisbe in Cenerentola, Christa in Věc Makropulos and Olga in Eugene Onegin. Margaret's first performances will be of Giovanna in Rigoletto which opens the 15/16 opera season on the 4th of September.
