Andrea Ihle (Soprano)

Born: April 17, 1953 - Dresden, Germany

The German soprano, Andrea Ihle, completed her singing studies at the Musikhochschule of Dresden, where she was a pupil of Klara Elfriede Intrau.

In 1976 she made her debut at the Dresdner Staatsoper in the role of the Giannetta in Elisir d'amore by Donizetti. Since then she was member of this opera house and became known particularly as interpreter of roles from the colaratura range as from the repertoire for lyric soprano. In February 1985, she sang in the opening evening of the newly launched Dresdner Semper-Oper the role of Ännchen in Freischütz by Weber, with which the following performance was Rosenkavaliers by R.Strauss as Marianne Leitmetzerin.

From her rich stage repertoire are to be mentioned: Despina in Così fan tutte, Papagena in Zauberflöte, Eurydike in Orpheus by Gluck, Gretel in Hänsel and Gretel by Engelbert Humperdinck, Marie in Waffenschmied by Lortzing, Carolina in Cimarosa’s Matrimonio segreto, Sophie in Rosenkavalier, the title role in in Regimentstochter by Donizetti and the Princess in the contemporary opera Der Schuhu und die fliegende Prinzessin by Udo Zimmermann. The artist made numerous gueast appearances together with the ensemble of the Dresden Opera, and attained high reputation as soloist in oratorios and sacred vocal works.
