Mezzo-soprano Tania Kross (born in 1976) stood out during her training at Utrecht Conservatory by winning several competitions. After graduating, she quickly became a rising star, especially in opera. She sang the role of Carmen with the Stuttgart Staatsoper and at the Glyndeborn Festival, and gave countless performances from Germany to New York. She performs opera regularly in the Netherlands (with the Dutch Touring Opera and the Dutch National Opera), but also sings other genres. Kross has issued a number of CDs. Her first, Corazon, won the Netherlands’ Edison Music Award. Kross is a welcome guest on television, where she is capturing new audiences with her love of music. She is also an ambassador for the National Youth Orchestra’s Instrument Loan Plan. Born on the island of Curacao, her greatest wish was to produce an opera in its native language, Papiamento. That wish came true in 2013 with the premiere of Katibu di Shon (Slave and Master).
