After obtaining her BA degree in classicalsinging at the University of Miskolc Béla Bartók Music Institute, Zsófia Mózer graduated the opera master’s program at the Mozarteum University Salzburg in 2020 under the instruction of the conductor Kai Röhrig and the director Karoline Gruber. During the last years of her studies, she joined the international opera studio of the Salzburger Landestheater, where she featured in roles such as Dorothea(Donizetti: Viva la Mamma), Edelknaben(Wagner: Lohengrin), Fatima and Meermädchen(Weber: Oberon),and DaisyStuart MacRae Anthropocene in this contemporary opera’sfirst premiere outside of England.
Other roles Zsófia Mózer has performed on stageinclude Dorabella(Mozart: Così fan tutte), Bastien(Mozart:Bastien und Bastienne), Lisetta(Haydn: Il mondo dellaluna), Hermia(Britten: Midsummer Night’s Dream), Grisostomoand Pedrillo(Telemann: Don Quichotte auf der Hochzeit des Comacho)and in Arnold Schönberg’s theatrical production Pierrot Lunaire. Shealso regularly performs as a concert singer, and was the alto singer in oratorios such as Rossini: Petite Messe Solennelle, Mozart: Requiem,and Pergolesi: Stabat Mater. Lied singing also plays a very importantrole in her life.
As an actress and singer, the credibleportrayal of her roles and continuous development are very important for Mózer, who was given inspiration by the master courses of Felicity Lott, Kobie van Rensburg, Andrew Watts, Tobias Hasan, Sebastian F. Schwarz, Stephen Morscheck, Peter Berne, and György Vashegyi. Her work with conductors and directors such as Adrian Kelly, Ido Arad, Leslie Suganandarajah, Kai Röhrig, Josef Wallnig, Karoline Gruber, Steven Medcalf, Christian Poewe, Andreas Gergen, and Roland Schwab have helped determine her path in artistic development, though she also credits her former teachers, including Boldizsár Keönch, Annamária Schmiedt, Elisabeth Wilke, and her répétiteurs Chariklia Apostolu, Katia Borissova, Lenka Hebr and Stefan Müller in giving her crucial pointers.
