Opéra de Lyon | THE STIGMATISED – Interview with M A Hofmann

Magdalena Anna Hofmann, who sings the role of Carlotta, explains her approach to discovering this new role.

 

Carlotta, an artist, is fascinating character to interpret; as Magdalena Anna Hofmann describes, her character is always looking for something to feed her imagination. 

In THE STIGMATISED, Carlotta is a character caught between Alviano, a misshapen cripple and Tamare who embodies masculine beauty. After years of repressing her deepest physical responses, Carlotta mistakes her pity for Alviano as love. But ultimately she cannot resist the attraction of Tamare and the dire consequences unfurl.
