The London-born soprano Ania Vegry studied at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media with Christiane Iven and Charlotte Lehmann as well as in Madrid with Teresa Berganza. While still a student, she became a permanent member of the Hanover State Opera, where she built up a large repertoire. For her Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro she was nominated "Young Singer of the Year" in the magazine Opernwelt. She performed numerous leading roles of a wide stilistic range from baroque opera to music theater works of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Guest engagements have taken Ania Vegry to the Deutsche Oper Berlin and Komische Oper Berlin, Hamburg State Opera, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Theater Bremen, Nationaltheater Mannheim, Opéra Garnier Paris, Alte Oper Frankfurt, Konzerthaus Berlin, Berliner Philharmonie, and Philharmonie am Gasteig in Munich. As a sought-after concert singer, she performs together with conductors such as Alexander Shelley, Jonathan Darlington, Eivind Gullberg Jensen, Simon Halsey, Christopher Hogwood, Keri-Lynn Wilson, Ira Levin, Enrique Mazzola, Gregor Bühl, Joana Mallwitz, Ivan Repusic and Helmuth Rilling.
She regularly gives recitals and concerts with renowned European orchestras as well as specialized period and new music ensembles. Her chamber music partners include internationally renowned musicians such as Tabea Zimmermann, Andreas Ottensamer, Albrecht Mayer, Sharon Kam, Markus Becker, Rudolf Buchbinder, Maxim Vengerov, Andrej Bielow, Nicholas Rimmer, and Jan-Philip Schulze. She is a regular guest at international festivals.
Vegry has repeatedly recorded opera arias and song cycles for radio stations (NDR, MDR, SWR, BR). She took the opportunity of the Hanover production of Gassmann's L'Opera Seria to peruse his oeuvre and have the previously unpublished concert and opera arias first published and then recorded with the NDR Radiophilharmonie under the direction of David Stern for the CPO label.
