The gifted singer-actress Maria Weiss was excellent as the power-hungry Gismonda; her performance increased in intensity over the course of the evening and her deeply moving claim seared itself unforgettably into the hearts of the audience.

Maria Weiss as the lovelorn Jupiter soars with heart-wrenching and dreamily beautiful vocals.

Die PresseWalter Weidringer

Maria Weiss impresses again with a boastful, masculine air, a vocal and dramatic work of art in herself.
Every gesture and expression is spot on, her voice is tremendous, and the continued suspense of her stage presence is breathtaking.

Then the moment arrives for the acting talents (...), but especially for the sensual qualities in voice and acting of Maria Weiss (Gismonda).

.. nestle together in a Tango step, an erotic tension sizzles that can only be topped by the acting performance and voice of Maria Weiss as the sensual Gismonda.

Maria was raised in a traditional family and came into early contact with singing through local folk song. As a teenager she was already in love with early music, Bach, Monteverdi and Händel. At that age she was passionate about the Ö1 radio programme “Alte Musik. Neu Interpretiert” („Old Music. Newly Interpreted”) and read Harnoncourt’s “Music as Speech”.
Those early milestones played a significant role in her life and career.
Today, Maria sings with prestigious musicians and orchestras such as Michi Gaigg, Domingo Hindoyan, Stefan Asbury, the L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra, Klangforum Wien or the Bach Consort Wien.
