BRIGITTE FASSBAENDER


Brigitte Fassbaender
Brigitte Fassbaender is directing at Oper Frankfurt for the first time. Recent productions have included Don Pasquale at the Cuvilliés Theatre in Munich and Katja Kabanová at Theater Regensburg. During her highly successful years as Intendantin of the Tiroler Landestheater in Innsbruck, a post she relinquised in 2012, her many productions included Werther, Carmen, Tosca, Lucio Silla, Les Troyens, Die verkaufte Braut/The Bartered Bride, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Peter Grimes, The Turn of the Screw, Arabella, Die Frau ohne Schatten, Salome and Elektra. She has been Artistic Director of the Richard Strauss Festival in Garmisch-Partenkirchen since 2009. Brigitte Fassbaender was one of the most sought after mezzo-sopranos in the world until she retired from singing in public in 1995. During her long and successful career she sang regularly at leading opera houses and festivals all over the world, including the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Vienna State Opera, La Scala Milan, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, the Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Bayreuth, Salzburg and Glyndebourne festivals. Her artistry has been captured on more than 300, many of them award winning, recordings, many of them of Lieder. The list of honours awarded to Brigitte Fassbaender includes the title of Kammersingerin at the Munich and Vienna state operas, a Bundesverdienstkreuz 1. Klasse mit Stern (Services to Germany Cross, 1st Class, with Star), the »Pour le Mérite« and an honorary doctorate from Manchester University. She is one of the most sought after singing teachers in the world.
