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. 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, her sensational debut as Brünnhilde in ‘Siegfried’ followed in Leipzig. In 2019/20, she is Helmwige in the new production of ‘Die Walküre’ in Madrid. This is followed in summer 2020 by the Siegfried-Brünnhilde in the new production of the Tetralogy at the Bayreuth Festival 2020.
