A new title role: Handel’s most seductive heroine

In December, Sydney debuts the title role of Handel’s Semele in a production by Barrie Kosky at the Komische Oper Berlin, the theater where Sydney had her international debut in 2015 as Cleopatra in Handel’s Giulio Cesare. Sydney will also perform Pamina in Kosky’s Die Zauberflöte with the company this season.
