Mezzo-soprano and vocal coach Nathalie Senf looks back on eight years of engagements in Germany („Festvertrag“). In the last seasons (2009 – 2014, Theater Plauen Zwickau) she developed a dramatic repertoire singing roles like Venus in Wagner’s Tannhäuser, Ulrica in Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera, Margaretha in Schumann’s Genoveva and Hedwige in Rossini’s Wilhelm Tell.

Interpreting music by French composers is one of her assets. She staged both Carmen by Bizet and Charlotte in Massenet’s Werther twice (both in Oldenburg, Carmen also in Plauen Zwickau, Charlotte also in Freiberg). She appeared in concerts singing Les nuits d’été by Berlioz and mélodies by Massenet. In may 2013 she performed Anna in Meyerbeer’s Vasco de Gama as a guest in Chemnitz. It is one of her great wishes to perform the cycle Harawi by Messiaen and to be part in a production of Dialogues des Carmélites by Poulenc, which illustrates another major interest: music from the 20th an 21st century. Nathalie Senf allready appeared in works by Moritz Eggert, Mauricio Kagel, John Adams, Peter Eötvös, Benjamin Britten, Arnold Schönberg, Victor Ullmann and others. In 2013/2014 she sang Naemi in Joseph Süß by Detlef Glanert at Theater Plauen Zwickau.

During her engagements at Oldenburgisches Staatstheater („Fest“ 2006 – 2009) and at Theater Plauen Zwickau („Fest“ 2009 – 2014) Nathalie Senf has built a broad repertoire. Apart from the roles already mentioned she interpreted: Cosí fan tutte (Dorabella), Die Csardasfürstin (Sylva Varescu), Die Fledermaus (Orlofsky), Hänsel und Gretel (Hänsel), Madama Butterfly (Suzuki) and others.

Nathalie Senf is member of Frauenrausch, a charming, new founded trio.

From 1999 to 2004 she studied in the class of Prof. Yaron Windmüller at the University of Music Saar in Saarbrücken/ Germany, where she graduated as an opera singer and vocal coach.
