Jana Hrochová

The mezzo-soprano Jana Hrochová (Wallingerová), née Štefáčková, gained her first singing experience in a children’s choir in the Moravian town of Šumperk. Studied at the Prague Conservatory with Jarmila Krásová from 1993 to 1999, in 2001 taking private study with the soprano Natalia Romanová. In 1998 she came second at the Czech Conservatories Singing Contest. Her first engagements took place at the Opera Mozart in Prague between 1997 and 2000, extending her activities to ancient music (with Ars Cameralis) and folk music (with the Muzika Jara ensemble).
In 2000 Mrs Hrochová Wallingerová was invited to join the opera company of the National Theatre in Brno, Czech Republic. The repertoire she has sung in Brno includes Carmen (Carmen), Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Suzuki (Madame Butterfly), The Fox (The Cunning Little Vixen), Varvara (Katja Kabanova), Fenena (Nabucco), Hänsel (Hänsel und Gretel), Nicklausse (The Tales of Hoffmann) and others. Guest performances have taken the young mezzo to a number of opera houses, such as Prague National Theatre, Prague State Opera, Plzeň, Ústí nad Labem, Liberec, Ostrava, Olomouc (Czech Republic), State Theatre Košice (Slovakia) and Theatre Freiburg (Germany). Mrs Hrochová Wallingerová’s concert activities are an essential part of her repertoire and have brought her together with some leading Czech orchestras, such as the Czech Philharmonic, Prague Symphony Orchestra FOK, Prague Radio Symphonic Orchestra, Brno Philharmonic Orchestra, Prague Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra and others. She works with conductors such as Jiří Bělohlávek, Serge Baudo, Gerd Albrecht, Ondrej Lenárd, Petr Altrichter, Jakub Hrůša, Leoš Svárovský, Tomáš Hanus and others. Mrs Hrochová Wallingerová is a regular guest at opera houses and concert stages outside the Czech Republic (Japan, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Netherlands, Austria, Germany and Italy). In 2011 she sang the alt-solo in Dvorak’s Requiem mass at a state funeral of Vaclav Havel. The Brno National Theatre awarded her with DIVA 2005, 2008 and 2010 Award. In 2012 she was nominated for the Thalia award for her role as Dulcinée in Massenet’s Don Quichotte in a production of F. X. Šalda Theatre in Liberec. In 2013 she was nominated for the Thalia award for her role as Hermia in Britten’s Midsummer Night’s Dream in a production of The Brno National Theatre. In the years 2011 and 2015 she recorded CDs of songs by Bohuslav Martinů for Naxos Records. In 2014, she was invited to perform the role of Carmen in Theatre Freiburg, Germany.
