BiographySwiss soprano Flurina Stucki studied voice and music education in Basel under the guidance of Isolde Siebert, and opera in Karlsruhe with Prof. Christiane Libor and Stephan Klemm. Flurina Stucki has been a member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin ensemble since August 2018, initially as a scholarship holder and from the 2019/20 season onwards.
Throughout her vocal career, she has been influenced by figures such as Margreet Honig, Julia Varady, Dorothee Labusch, Jan Schultsz, Paul Suits, Paul Triepels, Regina Heer, and Frank Hilbrich. She has also taken part in masterclasses with Hartmut Höll, KS Brigitte Fassbaender, Stefan Herheim, Roger Vignoles, François Le Roux, and Thomas Hampson.
After her debut in June 2018 as the First Lady in "Die Zauberflöte" at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, she was entrusted with larger roles such as Donna Anna in "Don Giovanni," Clori in the world premiere of Zad Moultaka's "Delirio," Konstanze in "Die Entführung aus dem Serail," Rosalinde in "Die Fledermaus," the Great Whore in Rued Langgaard's "Antikrist," Chrysothemis in "Elektra," as well as Freia and Helmwige in the new Ring Cycle. In the spring of 2021, she achieved a great success as a guest at the Theater Basel in the role of Christine Storch in Richard Strauss's "Intermezzo." She has worked with conductors such as Ronald Zollman, Stephan Zilias, Daniel Cohen, Donald Runnicles, Jurai Valčuha, and Carlo Montanaro.
Flurina Stucki possesses an extensive lieder repertoire. She has performed Messiaen's "Harawi" and Lieder by Richard Strauss and Max Reger in the "Lieder und Dichter" series at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, accompanied by John Parr on various occasions. In the 2023/24 season, they will focus on composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold, performing excerpts from "Die Tote Stadt."
The past 2022/23 season was particularly exciting for Flurina Stucki as she made role debuts as Amelia in "Simon Boccanegra," Leonore in "Fidelio," and Elsa in "Lohengrin." She performed the latter two roles at the Deutsche Oper Berlin alongside Klaus Florian Vogt and Attilio Glaser. She also appeared in revivals of "Donna Anna" in "Don Giovanni" and the role of the Great Whore in Rued Langgaard's "Antikrist" in Ersan Mondtag's opulent production. Additionally, she had guest appearances at the Oper Graz in a scenic new production of Britten's "War Requiem," directed by Lorenzo Fioroni, and at the Staatstheater Karlsruhe in a revival of the role of Chrysothemis in "Elektra." In the concert realm, she performed Strauss's "Vier letzte Lieder" at the opening concert of the Graz Philharmonic's season, and under Sir Donald Runnicles, she was part of a symphony concert at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, performing Alexander von Zemlinsky's Lyrische Sinfonie.
The 2023/24 season will be even more exciting for the Swiss soprano. In the concert field, she expands her repertoire to include Wagner's "Wesendonck Lieder" and Verdi's "Messa da Requiem." She will perform in Gustav Mahler's 8th Symphony with Orchestra Sinfonica e Coro Sinfonico di Milano under the direction of Claus Peter Flor. At the Deutsche Oper Berlin's season-opening concert, she will sing Elisabeth's entrance aria from "Tannhäuser" for the first time. Throughout the season she will appear there in revival productions such as Amelia in "Simon Boccanegra," Leonore in "Fidelio," Donna Anna in "Don Giovanni," the Wagnerian roles of Freia in "Das Rheingold," Helmwige in "Die Walküre," and 1. Flower Maiden in "Parsifal". She can also be heard again in the successful production of the opera "Antikrist". In the spring of 2024, she will make her house debut as Christine in R. Strauss's "Intermezzo" in a new production by Tobias Kratzer.

"Die einzig große weibliche Partie, die Amelia, sang Flurina Stucki, Gast von der Deutschen Oper Berlin. Es wurde ein großartiges Geschenk für die Besucher. Sie machte aus ihrer lyrischen Auftrittsarie als Amelia mit stimmungsvollen "Come in quest´ora bruna'' einen betörenden Höhepunkt."
Simon Boccanegra / Das Theater Lübeck / 14.05.23 / klassik-begeistert.de
"Star des Abends war unbestritten die Sopranistin Flurina Stucki von der Deutschen Oper Berlin, deren Amelia mit größtmöglicher Präsenz bei Berücksichtigung all der Zartheiten in der Wiedergabe ihrer Emotionen absolut überzeugte. Darstellerisch und gesanglich bot sie eine umwerfende Einheit;
sie verstand es, ihre starke, alles überstrahlende Stimme zu zügeln, wenn es zu seelenvollen Duetten wie dem mit ihrem wiedergefunden Vater oder ihrem Geliebten Gabriele Adorno ging."
