With her diverse and extensive repertoire, few artists of her generation are as successful as soprano Juliane Banse. Her operatic repertoire ranges from the Marschallin, Contessa (Le Nozze di Figaro), Fiordiligi, Donna Elvira, Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito), Genoveva (title role), Leonore, to Tatyana (Eugene Onegin), Arabella and Grete (Schreker's Der ferne Klang). Her artistic breakthrough came at the age of 20 as Pamina in Harry Kupfer’s production of Die Zauberflöte at the Komische Oper Berlin. Her performance as Snow White in the world premiere of the opera of the same name by Heinz Holliger, with whom she has a close working relationship, at the Zurich Opera House was described as unforgettable.
 
Juliane Banse sang the title role in the revival of Jeanne d’Arc by Walter Braunfels in Cologne, and appeared in Zurich in the world premiere of Heinz Holliger’s opera Lunea. She gave her long awaited debut as Marschallin in Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier, and sang the role of Elsa von Brabant in Wagner's Lohengrin in Nantes and Anger. She has performed three notable monodramas: THE TELL-TALE HEART by Dutch composer Willem Jeths at the Concertgebouw, Grigori Frid's Diary of Anne Frank at the Theater an der Wien, Poulenc's La Voix humaine at the Berlin State Opera and Cologne Opera, and sang the premiere of Manfred Trojahn's cycle Four Women from Shakespeare, composed especially for her voice. Inthe USA, Juliane Banse most recently appeared as Rosalinde (Fledermaus) in Chicago and in Strauss's Arabella (Zdenka) at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
