Anke Vondung was born in Speyer, and studied at the Music Conservatory in Mannheim under the guidance of Professor Rudolf Piernay.

In 1998, she participated in an international opera project of the European Opera Center directed by Brigitte Fassbaender and subsequently won numerous awards: She won First Prize at the international Hans Gabor Competition in Vienna, third Prize at the international ARD Music Competition in Munich (the First Prize was not awarded), as well as First Prize at the National Singing Competition in the field "concert". In 1999, she received First Price at the Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Competition, to name but a few.

From 1999 to 2002, she was an ensemble member at the Tyrol Regional Theater in Innsbruck, where she sang numerous great parts in her field, such as Octavian, Sesto, and Hansel. In the year 2000, Anke Vondung made her debuts as Hansel at the Théâtre Châtelet in Paris, and in 2001 as Siebel in Gounod’s "Faust" at the Munich National Opera.

During the following years, she achieved great successes at the Salzburg Festival, the Mozart-Festival-Weeks, the Opéra Bastille, as well as the Grand Théâtre de Geneva, at the Glyndebourne Festival, and the Nederlandse Opera Amsterdam.

In December 2006, she filled in for the part of Octavian in the premier of "Der Rosenkavalier" at the Opéra de Bastille in Paris, a role which she should perform at the Berlin State Opera a few months later and at the Munich Opera Festival in 2008. In 2007, she already gave her successful debut as Cherubino in "Le Nozze di Figaro" at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. From 2003 to 2006, she was an ensemble member at the Saxon State Opera Dresden; she still has a residency contract with the house.

In addition to her work as opera singer, Anke Vondung dedicates herself to concert and Lied performances. She has been working with conductors such as James Conlon, Helmuth Rilling, Sir Roger Norrington, Philippe Herreweghe, Edo de Waart, Gerd Albrecht, Kent Nagano, Manfred Honeck, Peter Schreier, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Fabio Luisi, Marek Janowski, René Jacobs, Peter Schneider and Jun Märkl.

Concert tours have led her to virtually every European country, as well as to North and South America.
