    Rheingold (Richard Wagner) A character who only makes a brief appearance is Erda in Wagner’s Rheingold – though this is a much more incisive role, and one that is important for the opera. I gave my debut as Erda at the State Theatre in Nuremberg in 2017.
    Erda is a goddess with a powerful presence. She has important things to say when she appears, and moves in an appropriately majestic way. This role demands a lot; you have to maintain a sense of calm, both vocally and in your stage movement, but also in how you put across the content of what she has to say.
    Dignified, barefoot, earthy and powerful – that’s my Erda, and I will always be happy to sing her again.


    Unmittelbar teilt sich der innere Mensch dem Ohr mit, und zwar durch den Ton seiner Stimme. Der Ton ist der unmittelbare Ausdruck des Gefühls.
