Renowned worldwide as one of the finest interpreters of Mozart's works, Sophie Karthäuser has earned such praise by singing her first ever Pamina under the baton of Renė Jacobs at La Monnaie and her debut Susanna led by William Christie with Opėra de Lyon.
She has appeared in several other Mozart roles, such as Tamiri (Thėȃtre des Champs-Elysėes), Sandrina (Theater an der Wien), Serpetta (Berlin Konzerthaus), Despina and Zerlina (Thėȃtre Royal de la Monnaie) and Ilia (Aix-en-Provence Festival, Salzburg Mozartwoche, Bremen, Thėȃtre des Champs-Elysėes and Theater an der Wien).
