 Update me on new releases by Meier

Waltraud Meier (b1956)

Waltraud Meier was already active as a singer in her youth, singing in numerous choral groups and taking singing lessons at university (where she studied English and Romance languages) firstly with Anton Theisen and, after his death, with Dietger Jacob in Cologne. Having sung in the chorus of the Würzburg Municipal Theatre, she made her solo debut there in 1976, as Lola / Cavalleria rusticana. At Würzburg between 1976 and 1978 Meier sang such roles as Cherubino / Le nozze di Figaro, Niklausse / Les Contes d’Hoffmann and Concepción / L’Heure Espagnole.

It was in Mannheim, where she was a member of the Opera between 1978 and 1980, that Meier sang her first Wagnerian roles. These were Fricka and Waltraute / Der Ring des Nibelungen; and here too she sang the title part in Carmen and Octavian / Der Rosenkavalier. From 1980 to 1983 she was with the Dortmund Opera, where she sang Kundry / Parsifal, Eboli / Don Carlo and Santuzza / Cavalleria rusticana.
