Theodora Baka

Greek-born Theodora Baka studied in Germany and graduated from the Hanover University of Music and Drama.
Her core repertoire ranges from Mediaeval and Baroque eras to Mozart and Rossini, but she feels equally at home performing the Romantic Lied or contemporary music. 
She has performed as a soloist at prestigious venues, such as Théâtre des Champs Ėlysées, Theater an der Wien, Teatro Nacional de São Carlos Lisbon, Markgräfisches Opernhaus Bayreuth, Handel Festspiele, Arriaga Theater Bilbao, Perm State Tchaikovsky Opera, with orchestras including Il Complesso Barocco (Alan Curtis), MusicaAeterna (Teodor Currentzis), and ensembles including Latinitas Nostra (Markellos Chryssikos), Atalante (Erin Headley), and Ex Silentio. She has also performed numerous chamber-music concerts and song recitals in Europe and the U.S.A.
She received outstanding reviews both for her performance of Alceste in the debut recording of Handel's Arianna in Creta(Diapason d’Or) under George Petrou and for her interpretation in the CDs Reliquie di Roma, with 17th-century Roman laments led by Erin Headley (Diapason d’Or). Her releases with Complesso Barocco include Domenico Scarlatti's opera Alessandro e Tolomeoand Handel’s Giove in Argo, and a DVD recording of Vivaldi's opera Motezuma, two medieval-music CDs (Nell’ autunno di Bisanzioand Mneme(Ex Silentio), and the traditional-Greek-music CD Myrtate.
