Place of Birth
Date of Birth

Jutta Bokor began learning to play the piano at the age of eight, and started singing in 1971. She was admitted to the Opera Department of the Ferenc Liszt College of Music in 1979, where she was a student of Márta Ónódy.

She appeared in numerous roles on the stage of the Hungarian State Opera House, both as a student and later as a member of the company. In 1985 she won the second prize at the Singer of the World contest in Cardiff, which was organised by the BBC’s Wales division.

After 1985 she was a contracted singer at the Vienna Volksoper. In 1994 she sang the alt solo of Mendelssohn’s oratorio, Elias, in the Berliner Cappella. In 1998 she represented Hungary at the Donaufest’s Friendship Concert in the concert hall of the Polish Radio, organised in memory of Lutoslawski. In 1999 she sang Octavian of Der Rosenkavalier and the alt solo of Bach’s Easter Oratorio in Zagreb. Both performances were recorded by the television. She has performed as a guest artist in Belgium, the former Czechoslovakia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Iceland, Poland and the former Soviet Union.

Her versatility shows also in her openness towards and interest in other fields of culture: she is the presenter of a radio program and leads a master course in Majk.
