Engagements in 2020/21 included Lisa in Weinberg's Die Passagierin / The (female) Passenger at Oper Graz and Lady Macbeth in the first performances in Germany of Pascal Dusapin's Macbeth Underworld at the Staatstheater in Saarbrücken. Dshamilja Kaiser, a regular guest at the Bregenz Festival, was awarded the 2015 Austrian Opera Prize in the »Best Up and Coming Singer« category.
