Vienna honours French mezzo

Sophie Koch, who sings tonight in Ariadne auf Naxos at the Vienna Staatsoper, Sophie Koch has been awarded the title ‘Österreichische Kammersängerin’, even though she’s proudly French.

Like the Staatsoper director Dominique Meyer (and in common with the owner of Slipped Disc), Sophie originates from Alsace-Lorraine.

  • Congratulations Sophie!! It was hard to tell who either of the men were in this picture because it was badly captioned.
