Roles on her CV inlcude Hänsel in Hänsel und Gretel, Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro and Hermia in A Midsummer night’s dream. Gruen’s repertoire spans from early baroque to contemporary music; with her interest in the latter having led to many collaborations with young composers and world premieres of both operas and concert pieces.
