Hire Irmgard Vilsmaier ›
«DER ROSENKAVALIER konzertant, Kennedy Center Washington DC 08.03.2014, Marianne Leitmetzerin At the top of the supporting cast, however, was Irmgard Vilsmaier, a German dramatic soprano, who blew the Roof off the place as Marianne Leitmetzerin, Sophies governess. Hopefully, she is on the Radar of the Washington National Opera, as a possible Brünnhilde for their upcoming ring. (IONARTS, Charles T. Downey, 10.03.2014)»
ROSENKAVALIER (2017)
«Die Walküre, Taipeh, 10.07 und 14.7. Brünnhilde In the title role was Irmgard Vilsmaier, who exuded energy, pluck and high spirits throughout. Pouring forth seemingly unlimited reserves of power, Vilsmaier demonstrated full command of the entire range, with husky low notes and thrilling high ones. This was a Brünnhilde more forthright than subtle, and her characterization was always convincing. Her studies with Astrid Varnay paid obvious dividends. (Robert Markow u.a für den Neuen MERKER)»
DIE WALKÜRE (2017)
«HÄNSEL UND GRETEL(Paris, Garnier Wiederaufnahme 21.11.2014) ÜBERSETZT: 1.) Imposante Gertrud, gesungen von der faszinierenden Irmgard Vilsmaier...kraftvoll, furchteinflössend..Ihr Sopran begeistert mit Frische und Autorität(artistik rezo.com, 26.11.2014) 2) Die Mutter, verkörpert von Irmgard Vilsmaier, erreicht enorme Intensität. Es vereinen sich Weichheit, Sorge und zutiefst Menschliches in Ihrer Stimme und Ihrem Spiel. Sie gibt Ihrer Figur Charakter! (Andre Tubeuf, louil et loreille, 21.11.2014)»
