Constance Hauman: In addition to having been one of the most sought interpreters of the fiendishly difficult role of Zerbinetta in Richard Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos, Ms. Hauman is perhaps most acclaimed for the title role in Alban Berg's Lulu, which can be heard on the Chandos label. This historic live recording from the Queen of Denmark's castle in Copenhagen in 1996 has recently been reissued.
Miss Hauman went on to do new productions of Lulu with the Flemish Opera and the L'Opéra nationale de Paris. Her recording of the role of Alice/Renee in Olga Neuwirth's ground breaking opera Lost Highway, based on David Lynch's film of the same title, was awarded France's Diaspon D'Or for best new recording in 2007, and her performance in the stage productions in Graz, Austria and Basel, Switzerland received international accolades.
She has performed her original one woman multimedia recital "Exiles in Paradise", a recital/documentary film of classical composers who landed in Los Angeles during the Second World War, to standing ovations for the opening of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, at the 92nd St. Y in New York, and for a limited run at Garry Marshall's theater (The Falcon), in Burbank, California.
