About Ester Pavlů
A graduate of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, mezzosoprano Ester Pavlů was introduced as Fenena in Jose Cura’s 2017 production of Verdi’s Nabucco at the National Theatre in Prague. Pavlů portrayed the Old Woman in the world premiere of Martinů’s What Men Live By, which received the Anděl award for best classical recording of 2018. In 2019, she joined a triumphant UK tour of Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with the FOK Prague Symphonic Orchestra, and received a standing ovation as Cinderella in Rossini’s La Cenerentola. In 2021 she excelled in Dvořák’s Rusalka, singing both the Foreign Princess and Witch.
In the 2022/2023 season, Ester Pavlů appears as Carmen in the same-name Bizet’s opera and as The Queen in Weinberger’s Schwanda the Bagpiper in the Prague National Theatre; a year later she will sing Santuzza in Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana.
