The German coloratura soprano, Jutta Vulpius, studied with Professor Franziska Martienssen-Lohmann in Weimar. She came from the same family as Christine Vulpius, the wife of Goethe.
Jutta Vulpius made her debut in 1952 (or 1954) as Queen of the Night in W.A. Mozart's Die Zauberflote at the Komische Oper in East Berlin. Her career was particularly marked by the director Walter Felsenstein. In 1956, she switched to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, to which belonged to her until 1991. In 1959, she was awarded the National Prize of the GDR. Appearances in Barcelona, Rome, Lisbon, Cairo, Moscow, and elsewhere made her a singer of international reputation. From 1954 to 1965, she regularly performed at the Händel-Festspiele of Halle in operas and oratorios. She also appeared at the Covent Garden Opera London, Grand Opéra Paris, Bolshoi Theater in Moscow and the Cairo Opera House, among others, with the Staatsoper Berlin, including in Barcelona, Lisbon, Munich, Rome, Prague and Hamburg. From 1954 to 1956 she sang at the Festival of Bayreuth roles as the flower girl in Parsifal, and Woglinde in Der Ring des Nibelungen (1955). In February 1974 she played with the Staatsoper in the premiere of Paul Dessau's opera Einstein. She also sang leading roles as a guest in the opera houses of Munich, Hamburg, and Prague. She was made Kammersängerin in 1959.
