Erika Miklósa made her debut at the Erkel Theatre in the role of Papagena in Die Zauberflöte in January 1991 at the tender age of 19, making her the youngest member in the history of the Opera. It was also Mozart’s masterpiece in which the Queen of the Night became her most iconic role that she first sang in Mannheim in 1992 and subsequently earned her worldwide recognition.
The coloratura soprano has appeared in a wide range of other memorable productions like Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Gilda (Rigoletto), Norina (Don Pasquale), Frasquita (Carmen) and Adele (Die Fledermaus), and she has also sung the title roles of Lakmé and Lucia di Lammermoor.
At her gala concert on 27 March 2021, she is to perform excerpts from all these pieces with her favourite colleagues, soloists Péter Balczó, Erika Gál, Zsolt Haja, Lilla Horti, István Horváth, Mihály Kálmándy, Ildikó Komlósi, István Kovács, Ágnes Anna Kun, Boldizsár László, Zoltán Megyesi, Rita Rácz, Csaba Sándor, Atala Schöck, Tibor Szappanos, Csaba Szegedi, János Szerekován and Bernadett Wiedemann.
