Few artists of her generation are as successful in so many spheres and with such varied repertoire as Juliane Banse. Her opera repertoire ranges from the Marschallin, the Countess in Figaro, Fiordiligi, Donna Elvira, Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito), Genoveva (title role), Leonore, Tatyana (Eugene Onegin), Arabella (title role), to Grete (Schreker’s Der ferne Klang). She achieved her artistic breakthrough as a twenty-year-old in the role of Pamina in Harry Kupfer’s production of The Magic Flute at the Komische Oper Berlin. Her performance as Snow White in the world premiere of the opera of the same name by Heinz Holliger at Zurich Opera House is also unforgettable; she works together closely with Holliger. Juliane Banse was born in southern Germany and grew up in Zurich. She took lessons first with Paul Steiner and later with Ruth Rohner at the Zurich Opera House, completing her studies under Brigitte Fassbaender and Daphne Evangelatos in Munich. Since the winter semester 2016/2017 Juliane Banse herself has held a professorship for singing at the Robert Schumann Academy in Dusseldorf.

Juliane Banse is also highly in demand as a concert singe with a broad repertoire. She has worked together with many renowned conductors, including Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Chailly, Bernard Haitink, Franz Welser-Möst, Mariss Jansons, Zubin Mehta and Manfred Honeck.

The 2019/20 season begins with a completely new project: Juliane Banse performs Schubert’s Winterreise in a danced and sung form accompanied by the pianist Alexander Krichel and the dancer István Simon directed by Andreas Heise. The premiere takes place in September 2019 in Leverkusen, guest performances follow in Spain and South America. Several exciting concert projects are planned: for instance Mahler’s Eighth Symphony conducted by Eliahu Imbal in Taipei, Berg’s Wozzeck Fragments with the SWR Symphony Orchestra conducted by Tito Ceccherini, in Frankfurt Heinz Holliger’s Puneigae and György Kurtág’s Messages of the late R. V. Troussova with the Ensemble Modern under Heinz Holliger, in Vienna H. W. Henze’s Nachtstücke und Arien with the ORF Austrian Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop, in Tokyo and Yokohama Berg’s Sieben frühe Lieder with the New Japan Philharmonic under Toshiyuki Kamioka.
