The “excellent” (Kurier) young Hungarian mezzo-soprano Dorottya Láng has earned international acclaim for her “ravishing” (Musik Heute) and “impeccable” talent. John Allison writes in The Telegraph that “she quickly showed herself to be a singer of great musical poise. …with rich and even tone rising to a pure top.”
Born in Budapest in 1986, Ms Láng studied at the Universität für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Wien (Vienna’s University of Music and the Performing Arts) with Claudia Visca. Her awards and honours include Prize Winner of the 2012 Emmerich Smola Competition, Third Prize at the 2011 Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation Song Competition and Prize Winner at the 2013 Mozart Academie competition in Aix-en-Provence.
Highlights of her 2016/17 season included Angelina in Renaud Doucet’s "La Cenerentola" and Hermia in Simon Phillips "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" at Hamburgische Staatsoper; Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 in the new Elbphilharmonie under Kent Nagano; Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in her Tonkünstler debut; a Schubertiade recital debut with Helmut Deutsch; and a further recital with Mr Deutsch at Budapest’s Palace of the Arts.
