IMG Artists welcomes mezzo-soprano Okka von der Damerau to its roster for representation in France. Ms von der Damerau will be represented by artist manager Sofia Surgutschowa out of the company’s Paris office.

Hamburg-born Okka von der Damerau, praised for her “powerful lyricism” (Bachtrack), is a member of the Bayerische Staatsoper ensemble, where she has sung roles such as Erda (Das Rheingold) and Ulrica (Un ballo in maschera).

Upcoming season highlights include a new production of Das Wunder Der Heliane at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Brangäne in Tristan Und Isolde with the Cleveland Orchestra, Mahler II. Symphony under the baton of Antonio Pappano at Enescu Festival Bucharest and under Kent Nagano in Munich and Berlin, and IX. Beethoven under Daniel Barenboim in Berlin.
