Described by critics as “extraordinary” with “flawless technique” and “gorgeous stage presence”, French-Cypriot soprano Sarah Aristidou is a star in the making, and has already worked with a number of major conductors including Daniel Barenboim, Sir Simon Rattle and François-Xavier Roth. Sarah has twice been nominated as “Best Newcomer” by Opernwelt. She was most recently awarded the Luitpold Prize for outstanding performance of a newcomer at the Kissinger Sommer Festival (2021).
