Dorothea Röschmann


Malcolm Martineau


The artist first encountered success at the Salzburg Festival in 1995, where she played Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro under the baton of Nikolaus Harnoncourt. It is in roles created by Mozart that the singer feels at ease and excels. She does, however, occasionally stray from her favourite composer. She is an accomplished performer of Mozart, thanks to the understated precision of her timbre, her inner elegance that preserves her intelligibility and also her natural expressiveness, revealing an emotional architecture with each performance. In every role she takes on, a delicacy of elocution can be noted that brings her wonderfully crafted characters to life. Dorothea Röschmann’s diamantine timbre is enhanced by its intense, finely whittled suppleness. In 2016 she was named “Berliner Kammersängerin” following a performance at the Staatsoper in Berlin. She has close ties to this institution, having appeared as Ännchen with Mehta, Nannetta with Abbado, Eva, Elsa, Pamina, Fiordiligi, Suzanne, Zerlina, Micäela, Donna Elvira, The Countess with Barenboim and The Marschallin with Sir Simon Rattle. An unmissable voice and performer. This promises to be another memorable evening.
