Praised for her “phenomenal, concise and clear voice” (Süddeutsche Zeitung), “great projection” (Bachtrack) and commended for the “ warmth and poise” of her sound (Seen and Heard International), Turkish-German singer Deniz Uzun brings her unique cultural background and artistry to each role she performs.
about deniz uzun
Supported from an early age, mezzo-soprano Deniz Uzun's first performances regularly took place both on the opera stage of the Nationaltheater Mannheim, and at concert events in Germany and abroad. Today, her international performing career encompasses a growing list of awards and honors and includes a series of exciting house debuts, both in recent seasons and on the horizon.
Deniz’ 23/24 season begins with concerts in France and Switzerland before returning to Komische Oper Berlin as Olga in Eugene Onegin. Highlights include her debut with Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in Verdi’s Messa di Requiem under the baton of Franz Welser Möst, and her return to Dallas Symphony in the first ever concert-semi-staged performance of the Ring
Cycle in US history, where Deniz sings the role of Fricka and Waltraute under the baton of Fabio Luisi.

"From the Young Artist Soloists Deniz Uzun peaks out as the housekeeper Florence. Not only did she fascinate with her voluminous, free sounding, velvet mezzo-soprano, but also did she make us laugh with her portrayal of the extremely morally strict, obedient to her mistress, but actually quite cunning and concentrated on her own interests and pleasure."

Equally at home in alternative genres of music, Deniz's artistic portfolio highlights a passion for world music, which has always accompanied her musical path, whether it is rearranging traditional Turkish folk songs or improvising on themes of Benjamin Britten.
