Olga Pudova


Her voice is capable of producing stentorian and steely high notes as well as a magically floating pianissimo. Her coloratura work is superb, which is not a surprise considering that she was originally hired to sing the high-flying Queen of the Night in TDO's concurrent production of Mozart's The Magic Flute.


The coloratura soprano is fast becoming one of the most singers exciting of our age.

During recent previous seasons, engagements included Königin der Nacht (Die Zauberflöte) at the Dallas Opera and Semperoper Dresden, her role debut as Konstanze in and new production of Die Entführung aus dem Serail at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, and her company debut at Welsh National Opera in Stravinsky’s Rossignol, which will tour to the Royal Opera House. More recently, roles included Olympia (Les contes d’Hoffman) at the Gran Teatre de Liceu, Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos) at the Grand Theatre de la Ville de Luxembourg and Giunia (Lucio Silla) with La Seine Musicale and her role debut as Violetta in La Traviata at the Bolshoi Theatre Moscow.

This 2023 24 season, Olga will sing Zerbinetta Ariadne auf Naxos at Teatro Comunale di Bologna and Teatro La Fenice and in concert she will sing Rachmaninov the Bells with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall conducted by Vasily Petrenko.
