Serena Saenz jumps in as Pamina

¡Short notice jump in! As member of the Staatsoper Berlin International Opera Studio, I was due to sing Papagena in the new production of Yuval Sharon’s production of Die Zauberflöte in all the shows, when at very short notice, I mean it was just two days before Premiere during the general rehearsal, that I was asked to jump in as Pamina to for the opening night because the great Anna Prohaska had laringitis and was undisposed.



You can imagine how I felt… immensely honored by the opportunity I was just being given, a main role debut in Staatsoper Berlin with only 24 years old conducted by Alondra de la Parra.



A DREAM.

That kept me very much alert for those two days until the opening night came. This production had an extra challenge:

I had to sing hanging from the ceiling with a 9 meter distance from the top to the bottom of the stage. With no stage rehearsal I jumped into this adventure, and so far I know it went well! 17th of February 2019 is a day for history in my career.



Next season I am going to be able to deepen Pamina role as there are many more shows to come, and working according to a plan is much appreciated.
