Dorottya Láng



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.

The 2018/19 season will see Ms Láng return to the Hamburgische Staatsoper for the roles of Minerva in Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria and Hannah A. in Benjamin. She will also perform Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with Wiener Symphoniker and at the Wiener Konzerthaus under the baton of Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Szenen aus Goethes Faust at Stichting Omroep Muziek in Utrecht as well as her debut at the Hugo Wolf Academy in November 2018 with a Loewe song recital with Milan Siljanov. In addition, Ms Láng will give several recitals including at the Wiener Konzerthaus with Julius Drake and at the Oxford Lieder Festival with Julius Drake and Sholto Kynoch.

“Dorottya Láng nonetheless gave voice to the yearning male protagonist quite unblushingly, but also quite superbly. Hers is a rich instrument especially in its middle register, and she made the wide span of the vocal line sound effortless. The top of the voice was secure and bright, and at times as fierce as the passion of the text.”
