I really enjoyed the last few months off with my little baby, but I am excited now to be back in the rehearsal room for some preparation!
I’m happy to announce that in the 2019/20 Season I will be making an exciting debut in my hometown Hamburg at the Elbphilharmonie, a concert hall that I have longed to sing in since it was built. Later in the year I will have my debut at the Nationaltheater Mannheim, and I will be returning to my beloved Oper Frankfurt. There will also be a lot of fun concerts and even some musical theatre! Check out my calendar for details.

"Mit sehr witzig und treffsicher gesetzten Spitzentönen schließlich spielt die Sopranistin Nora Friedrichs in der Arie der Adele aus Strauss“ „Fledermaus“ die lebenshungrige Unschuld vom Lande."
