Anu Komsi continues to be praised for her versatile musicianship and her dynamic coloratura voice. Equally at home on both opera and concert stages, Anu Komsi has performed a wide opera repertoire in leading opera houses, as well as with numerous major orchestras. In addition, she is a versatile recitalist and chamber musician with a repertoire ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music. George Benjamin, Kaija Saariaho, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Jukka Tiensuu, Jonathan Harvey, James Dillon, Kimmo Hakola and Heinz-Juhani Hofmann are amongst the composers who have written music for Komsi’s voice.
 
For many years, Anu Komsi was director of the opera festival Kokkola. In summer 2017 this successful collaboration found its concluding highlight in the widely acclaimed production of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s ‘L’étoile du nord’, in which Anu Komsi sang the leading role of Cathérine.
