Astrid Kessler stars as Simplicius Simplicissimus in Mannheim:
Astrid Kessler takes over the premiere of Arabella at Opera Zurich, on short notice!
“.. Astrid Kessler nailed the title role, deservedly taking thunderous applause at the curtain.” (bachtrack.com – Sarah Batschlelet,03.03.2020)
Astrid Kessler wins 2nd prize in the German repertoire category in the international singing competition “Meistersinger von Nürnberg”!
“Dynamic, iridescent and lithe, sexy, self-confident and dominant she commands the stage. Astrid Kessler acts out every nuance of this conflicted character, her voice floats dreamily in tender lyrical passages and rages in dramatic coloraturas, music and emotion form an inseparable whole in her fascinating performance.” (Konstanze Führlbeck, Rheinpfalz – 11.06.2018).
