 Update me on new releases by Rothenberger

Anneliese Rothenberger (1926 - 2010)

Rothenberger, who studied with Erika Müller from 1942 to 1944, joined the Municipal Theatre at Koblenz in 1943. Here she made her operatic stage debut as Christel / Der Vogelhändler, shortly followed by Gretel / Hänsel und Gretel; but with the closure of theatres following the declaration of total war in 1944 was forced to find work in a metal factory. In 1947 however she sang in a concert at the Musikhalle in Hamburg and was offered a contract with the Hamburg State Opera by Günther Rennert, making her debut as Oscar / Un ballo in maschera.

A member of this company until 1959 and a regular guest until 1973, Rothenberger initially focused upon the soubrette and light soprano roles such as Cherubino / Le nozze di Figaro, Blonde / Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Musetta / La Bohème and Olympia / Les Contes d’Hoffmann. She also sang Regina, in the British premiere of Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler, with the Hamburg company at the Edinburgh Festival in 1952.
