Born in Flensburg, Germany, Dorothea Röschmann made a critically acclaimed debut at the 1995 Salzburg Festival as Susanna under Harnoncourt and has since returned to the Festival many times to sing Ilia, Servilia, Nanetta, Pamina, and Vitellia, with Mackerras, Dohnányi, and Abbado.

With the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Dorothea Röschmann has sung Zerlina, Susanna, Ännchen, Drusilla, Almirena, Marzelline, Anne Trulove, and, most recently, Rodelinda. She is closely associated with the Deutsche Staatsoper, Berlin, where her roles include Elmira in Kaiser’s Croesus and the title role in Scarlatti’s Griselda, both with Jacobs; Ännchen with Mehta; Nannetta with Abbado; and Pamina, Fiordiligi, Susanna, Zerlina, Micäela, and Donna Elvira with Barenboim. She has also sung at La Monnaie, Brussels, as Norina and at the Bastille, Paris, as Pamina. At the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, her roles have included Pamina with Sir Colin Davis and Countess Almaviva with Pappano. At the Metropolitan Opera she has sung Susanna and Pamina with Levine, and at the Vienna Staatsoper she has appeared as Susanna with Ozawa. At the 2006 Salzburg Festival she sang both Countess Almaviva and Vitellia with Harnoncourt. This season she sings Ilia at the Metropolitan Opera, and her plans include Countess Almaviva and Donna Elvira at the Vienna Staatsoper and Fiordiligi at Covent Garden.
