5 Mar 2024

IMG Artists is delighted to welcome soprano Anna-Louise Cole to our roster for general management. She will be represented by Artist Manager Isabella Pitman.

Anna-Louise Cole is an Australian dramatic soprano, who has made a series of important role debuts in recent years, to universal acclaim. Her roles include Brünnhilde (all operas), Sieglinde, Turandot, Lady Macbeth, Elsa, Chrysothemis, Venus (Pariser Fassung), Tosca and Aïda. She has worked with conductors including Phillipe Auguin, Andrea Battistoni, Umberto Clerici, Asher Fisch, Johannes Fritzsch, Pietari Inkinen, Renato Palumbo and Leonardo Sini, and with directors including Neil Armfield, Chen Shi-Zheng and Luigi De Angelis / Fanny e Alexander.

Anna-Louise has been a winner and finalist in many singing competitions, including the AIMS and Sundell Study Awards, the Elizabeth Connell International Singing Competition for Dramatic Sopranos, the Herald Sun Aria, the German Opera Scholarship and the Lady Fairfax New York Scholarship from the Opera Foundation for Young Australians.

Anna-Louise has appeared in numerous opportunities on the concert platform and in recital in Melbourne, Sydney and Vienna. Highlights have included performances of the soprano solos in Mahler’s 2nd and 8th Symphonies (Magna Peccatrix), Rossini’s Stabat Mater and Mozart’s Mass in C Minor and recitals of operatic arias and Lieder, including Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, Lieder by R Strauss and J Marx, and Berg’s 7 frühe Lieder.

Anna-Louise said, “I’m truly thrilled to be joining IMG Artists, particularly at this pivotal point in my career. I’m really excited to work with Isabella and the rest of the team. It’s wonderful to begin a collaboration with such passionate individuals, who really love opera. I can’t wait to see what the next chapter will bring!”

Isabella said, “It was such a special moment hearing Anna-Louise sing for the first time. She has a stellar top of the voice and a brilliant directness of communication.  Anna-Louise is already a well-known Wagnerian in Australia, and I can’t wait to get started and begin using that momentum to expand her work in Europe too.”
