Daniela Köhler

“...last but by far not least: Daniela Köhler as overwhelmingly vocal Brünnhilde. A Brünnhilde, if ever there was one. Radiantly excited in her voice (and in her eyes!!!) as she greeted the sunlight, the ‘Heil dir’ shouts almost caused goosebumps – and certainly woke some of the audience from their sleep. An enchanting, beautiful voice of a singer from whom one will hopefully hear and see many more exciting things in the future. Together with Thomas Mohr's wonderful tenor, Siegfried and Brünnhilde sang a veritable triumph. This duet at the end was almost gigantic!“

Here comes a young, highly dramatic soprano who has a great career ahead of her. Her successful debut as Sieglinde at the Oper Leipzig at the beginning of 2018 clearly shows her way into the great Wagner Fach. Her repertoire includes Elisabeth, Senta, Kaiserin, Chrysothemis, Gutrune, the Brünnhilden, as well as the Leitmetzerin, Norma, Erste Dame, Fidelio-Leonore and Gertrud (‘Hänsel und Gretel’). At the Bayreuth Festival 2018, she was engaged as Sieglinde-cover in ‘Die Walküre’ and sang all parts of Brünnhilde in the Bayreuth children's opera ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen’. In Mainz, she made her debut as Brünnhilde in Loriot’s ‘Ring an einem Abend’ – a role in which she also shone at the Aalto-Theater in Essen as well as at the Nationaltheater Mannheim. In 2019, she toured with the Bayreuth Festival to Abu Dhabi, where she sang Sieglinde in ‘Die Walküre’ which was directed by Katharina Wagner and conducted by Markus Poschner. In spring, she made her sensational debut as ‘Siegfried’-Brünnhilde in Leipzig and in November, she presented the demanding soprano part of Mahler’s 8th Symphony with the Orchestre National de Lille. In 2019/20, she returns to Mainz as Brünnhilde in Loriot's ‘Ring’ and sings Fidelio-Leonore in Chemnitz, Helmwige in the new production of ‘Walküre’ in Madrid and Siegfried-Brünnhilde at the Oper Leipzig and the Theater Chemnitz. In summer, the highlight of 2020 will follow: in the new production of the tetralogy at the Bayreuth Festival, she will introduce herself to the international Wagner audience as Siegfried-Brünnhilde. Her debut as Tannhäuser-Elisabeth at the Aalto-Theater in Essen follows in autumn. As Rosalinde in ‘Die Fledermaus’ she shows her comic side in Chemnitz in autumn.
