Sophie Koch Mezzo-soprano
Season 24/25 Artist


First Prize by unanimity at the Paris Conservatoire, Sophie Koch made her professional debut in France but her career quickly took an international turn. 

She is a regular guest artist on the greatest international stages. She performs in Brussels, Barcelona, Zurich, London, Dresden, Vienna, and at the Metropolitan Opera New York, as well as at the Salzburg, Aix-en-Provence and Edinburgh Festivals. 

In the 2018/19 season, she returned to the Vienna Staatsoper to sing Fricka (Das Rheingold), the Komponist (Ariadne auf Naxos) and Charlotte (Werther). The 2019/20 season saw her debut at the Teatro Colón Buenos Aires as the Muse/Nicklausse (The Tales of Hoffmann) and her return at the Théâtre du Capitole, Toulouse, in her role debut as Kundry (Parsifal). 

In the 2020/21 season, she performed Federica (Luisa Miller) in Marseille, and many concerts throughout Europe. Her highlights of the 2021/22 season included her role debut as Marie (Wozzeck) and Sieglinde (La Walkyrie) in Toulouse, as well as her performance of the Komponist at Teatro alla Scala and at the Florence Maggio Musicale. 

In the 2022/23 season, she will make her role debut as Isolde (Tristan and Isolde) in Toulouse, and sing Octavian (Der Rosenkavalier) at Semperoper Dresden, and Gertrude (Brett Dean’s Hamlet) at Bayerische Staatsoper. 

She has portrayed all the major roles of Mozart and Strauss. Most recently, she has decided to dedicate more time to the French and German repertoires, thus performing Charlotte, Marguerite (The Damnation of Faust), Fricka and Waltraute (Der Ring des Nibelungen) and Venus (Tannhäuser). 

Her extensive discography reflects her artistic work, for which she was awarded the Christel Goltz Prize of the Semperoper Dresden in 2001 and the title of Österreichische Kammersängerin of the Vienna Staatsoper in 2016.
