In 2017 she appeared as Varvara in Janáček’s Káťa Kabanová with Sir Simon Rattle conducting. In the 2019/20 season she performed this role again at Berlin State Opera, also singing First Norn, Flosshilde and Grimgerde in Wagner’s 'Ring' cycle.

Anna Lapkovskaja made her operatic debut in 2010 at Nürnberg State Opera in the title role of Bizet’s Carmen. Her first engagement at the Teatro alla Scala di Milano came in 2013, as Flosshilde in the 'Ring' cycle with Daniel Barenboim. That year she also performed at the BBC Proms, returning to the Scala in 2017 to sing Dunja in The Tsar’s Bride and as Magdalene in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. She has also performed at the Munich State Opera under the baton of Ádám Fischer and Kirill Petrenko, at Wiesbaden State Theatre, Bavarian State Opera and at the Bayreuth Festival.
