Russian-born Finnish mezzo-soprano Anna Danik  graduated  2007 at the soloist class of Royal Danish Academy of Music by professor Kirsten Buhl-Möller and Sibelius Academy in Finland.

In 2006 she made her debut as Donna Anna in the Rialto Theatre Copenhagen, and very successfully performed several years as a soprano, mainly in Mozart roles such as Contessa and Donna Anna, Fiordiligi and Erste Dame.  In these years she sang in important venues such as the Finnish National Opera, Savonlinna Opera Festival, Berwaldhallen Festival, Gulbenkian Music Festival, Turku Musik festival etc. under the baton of e.g. Hannu Lintu, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Leif Segerstam, Howard Arman, John Storgårds. Beside Mozart, Anna has performed Tatiana, Sieglinde and Tosca, Shostakovich’s Symphony nr.14 and War Requiem by Britten.

In 2012 Anna Danik switched to mezzo-soprano and quickly grew into more dramatic parts. Her Eboli debut in 2014 with Robert Schumann Philharmonie in Chemnitz Opera was received with enthusiasm among critics and public.
