Praised for her “flaming mezzo” (Süddeutsche Zeitung) as well as her “high musicality with the best diction” (Online Merkur), Russian mezzo-soprano Natalya Boeva won the 2018 ARD International Music Competition in Munich. There, she was also awarded the special prize for the best interpretation of a commissioned composition by Stefano Gervasoni.

While studying for a bachelor’s degree in choral conducting at the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in St. Petersburg, she made her debut as Dorabella there at the opera house and since then, she has performed more than 25 operatic roles like Charlotte, Komponist, Orfeo, and Sesto among others on stages in Russia, Italy, Germany, and Austria. Boeva completed her bachelor’s degree in opera singing at the EKIDA University in St. Petersburg and her master’s degree with Christiane Iven at the Bayerische Theaterakademie August Everding at the Prinzregententheater in Munich.

Natalya Boeva has been an ensemble member at the Staatstheater Augsburg since the 2018/2019 season, embodying diverse roles in opera, operetta, and concert repertoire. She participates in chamber music productions and is equally in demand for interpretations of lieder. In 2019 and 2020, Natalya Boeva appeared on Bayerischer Rundfunk with art song programs such as Nimmersatte Liebe with Ivan Demidov and Meine Seele weinte with Polina Spirina at the grand piano.

Südwestrundfunk also recorded other lied programs with Demidov on the grand piano in 2019 and 2021 – featuring the lieder and vocal cycles of Johannes Brahms, Clara and Robert Schumann, Gustav Mahler, Dmitri Shostakovich, Claude Debussy, Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriel Fauré, Alexander Gretchaninov, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky.
