Being on the operatic stage was the dream of my life as a singer. How lucky I was to be able to sing most of the important roles of the coloratura soprano fach! They are my precious memories and brought to me much of the knowledge and experience a singing teacher needs about the real life of a singer.

My other favourite roles include: Olympia (Offenbach: Les Comptes de Hoffmann), Susanna (Mozart: Le Nozze di Figaro), Blonde (Mozart: Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Queen of the Night (Mozart: Die Zauberflöte), Adina (Donizetti: Elisir d´amore), Nella (Puccini: Gianni Schicchi), Nayade (R. Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos), Chava (Bock: Fiddler on the Roof).
