Nobles seigneurs, salut! – Giacomo Meyerbeer
As a Young Artist at the OperaNEO Festival 2022, Anna sings Urbain’s aria, ‘Nobles seigneurs, salut!’ (Good sirs, greetings!), from Act 1 of Les Huguenots (1836) by Giacomo Meyerbeer. Urbain possesses a letter addressed to Raoul de Nangis, a Protestant nobleman attending a party of the Catholic Count of Nevers. The message comes from an unnamed woman, inviting Raoul to a secret rendezvous. However, when he first arrives, only Urbain knows who the message is for and decides to tease all the attendants of the party.

Erwartung Op. 2 No. 1 – Arnold Schoenberg
From the incredibly sensuous cycle Op. 2, composed by Arnold Schoenberg in 1899, Erwartung (Anticipation) depicts a surreal scene of a man in the forest, his reflection in the lake being illuminated by the moon, and a woman’s hand beckoning to him from a red villa nearby.
Performed as part of Anna’s Master Recital, Justice in Song, at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2021, David Bollen accompanies on the piano.
