Dorothea Herbert

“The soloist, a heroine with a brunette bob in a silvery shimmering sequin dress, is the discovery of the evening. Herbert fires missiles with her explosive, yet supple voice, whose huge ambitus overwhelms upwards.”

This is just one of the jubilant reviews that have appeared after the debut as Salome in Mönchengladbach. Here's a young soprano with all the star qualities. An unusually beautiful voice in all situations, great stage presence and, last but not least, good looks. With roles such as Senta, Fidelio-Leonore, Elisabeth (‘Tannhäuser’), Elsa, Eva (‘Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg’), Salome, Capriccio-Gräfin, Ariadne or Arabella she will soon be heard on German stages. In 2017, she made her debuts as Rosalinde (‘Die Fledermaus’) and Amelia (‘Un ballo in maschera’) at the Theater Bremerhaven, where she already appeared as Senta. As Amelia and Senta she appeared at the Nationaltheater Mannheim and at the Theater Regensburg and was engaged as Heliane cover in Korngold’s ‘Das Wunder der Heliane’ at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. In summer 2018, she sang her first Donna Anna in Mannheim. In autumn, her debut as Agathe followed in the new production of ‘Der Freischütz’ in Karlsruhe. In this role, she will be seen again in Karlsruhe as well as at the Semperoper Dresden in 2019/20. Since the 2019/20 season, she has been a member of the ensemble at Theater Krefeld Mönchengladbach where she makes her debuts in the title roles of the new productions ‘Salome’ and ‘Rusalka’.
