“One simply has to be enchanted by her voice: a bright girl-like soprano which she can, when necessary, give a darker timbre, yet which constantly radiates a blossomy glow.” (Fonoforum)

Anna Lucia Richter comes from a large family of musicians. As a long-time member of the girls' choir at Cologne Cathedral, she has been receiving singing lessons from her mother Regina Dohmen since she was nine years old. Subsequently, she was trained by Prof. Kurt Widmer in Basel and graduated with honors from Prof. Klesie Kelly-Moog at the Musikhochschule Köln. She received further coaching from Margreet Honig, Edda Moser, Christoph Prégardien and Edith Wiens. Richter has already won numerous international awards, including the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award.

As a concert singer, Anna Lucia Richter is a welcome guest at the Lucerne Festival, where she impressed with Mahler's Wunderhorn songs alongside the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Riccardo Chailly as well as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Bernard Haitink alongside Christian Gerhaher. Recent concert highlights have been appearances with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer, amongst others at the BBC Proms, the Orchestre de Paris and the NDR Elbphilharmonie, each under Thomas Hengelbrock, as well as the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecila and Daniel Harding, the London Symphony Orchestra and Bernard Haitink, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra and Paavo Järvi and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra and Jérémie Rhrorer.

Her operatic repertoire includes roles such as Ilia (Idomeneo), Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and the roles of Eurydice / La Musica in Monteverdi's Orfeo, in the acclaimed production by Sasha Waltz. In 2017 she had great success at the Theater an der Wien in Keith Warner's new production of Henze's Elegie für junge Liebenden in the main role of Elisabeth Zimmer.
