Anna Pierard

Anna developed her career as a versatile operatic and concert mezzo soprano, and following a return to New Zealand, she has made the change to soprano. Whilst studying in Europe, Anna completed the two-year course, De Nieuwe Opera Academie, in Amsterdam. There she performed several roles to great acclaim, including Hermia in Britten?s A Midsummer Night?s Dream, under Lukas Vis; Ruggiero in Handel?s Alcina, under Richard Eggar; Dido in Purcell?s Dido and Aeneas, and Zita in Puccini?s Gianni Schicchi, both under Jeremy Carnall.
