BIOGRAPHY

The soprano Susanne Bernhard was born in Munich and began her vocal studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich in 1995. She was taught by Angelica Vogel and attended Helmut Deutsch’s Lied class, but also had private lessons with KS Jan-Hendrik Rootering, Dietrich Schneider, Carol Byers, and Richard Trimborn.

Since the beginning of her studies, she participated in numerous productions of the Bayerische Theaterakademie. In 1997, she gave her debut as Susanna in Mozart’s "Le Nozze di Figaro" at the Munich Prinzregententheater. In the year 2000, at the young age of 23, she became an ensemble member at the Kiel Opera. There she performed in numerous roles, such as Lisa in Schreker’s "Christophorus", Violetta in Verdi’s "La Traviata", and gave guest performances in roles such as Sophie in "Der Rosenkavalier" by Richard Strauss and as Musetta in Puccini’s "La Bohème".

In addition to her capacity as opera singer, Susanne Bernhard dedicates herself to singing lied, oratorios, and concerts. Her numerous engagements in this field have led to collaborations with the Georgisches Kammerorchester, the Ader Paris ensemble, the Neue Hofkapelle München, the Russian National Orchestra, the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele, and the International Bach Academy Stuttgart. Under Semyon Bychkov, she had a guest performance with the WDR Symphony Orchestra. At the Saarländischer Rundfunk, she sang at the gala for the 50th anniversary of the orchestra under Stanislaw Skrowaczewski (Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9), which was also broadcasted on TV.

In 2007, she performed Bruckner’s "Te Deum" at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, sang with the Camerata Academica Salzburg at the Beethoven Festival Warsaw, and performed in Mendelssohn’s "Paulus" with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.  In November, she very successfully filled in for Luba Orgonasova and performed the soprano part in Verdi’s "Missa di Requiem" on a tour with Enoch zu Guttenberg, which led her to the Berlin Philharmonie, the Dortmund Konzerthaus, as well as to the Alte Oper Frankfurt. More recently, she performed in Beethoven’s "Missa Solemnis" under Enoch zu Guttenberg at the Herrenchiemsee Festival, and at the Kölner Philharmonie.
