On the concert podium, Elisabeth Breuer has established herself as a much sought-after interpreter of the works of Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart. The Austrian soprano has performed in renowned concert halls such as the Elbphilharmonie, the Vienna Musikverein, the Leipzig Gewandhaus, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Munich Philharmonie am Gasteig, as well as many other important concert stages and festivals throughout Europe.
She sings under renowned conductors such as Ton Koopman, Daniel Harding, Franz Welser-Möst, Andrew Manze, Dennis Russel Davies or Andrés Orozco-Estrada and performs with important orchestras such as the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, the MDR Sinfonieorchester, the Norddeutsche Radiophilharmonie, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, the Helsinki Baroque Orchestra or the La Folia Baroque Orchestra.
Her recent successes on the opera stage include Elisa in Mozart’s Il Re Pastore at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, Rezia in Haydn’s L’Incontro improvviso at the Herbstgold Festival in Eisenstadt or Hyppolithe in Schürmann’s Die getreue Alceste at Winter in Schwetzingen under Christina Pluhar.
In addition to her stylistically confident performance of her core repertoire in concert, Elisabeth Breuer likes to keep her versatility in opera. Her most important roles include Norina, Musetta, Gretel, Despina, Anne Frank and Adele, which she has performed at the opera houses in Turin, Naples, Cologne, Vienna and at the Landestheater Linz, where she was an ensemble member from 2009 to 2016.
Highlights of the coming season include her debut at the Wiener Konzerthaus in July 2021 with Orff’s Carmina Burana or the role of Nice in Vivaldi’s La Ninfa e il Pastore at the Festival Opera Barga under Federico Maria Sardelli in August. In the 2021/22 season Elisabeth Breuer will again be working closely with Ton Koopman, making her debut under his baton with Haydn’s Seasons in January 2022 with the Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire in Nantes and Angers. With him and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, she will also tour through Europe with the Mass in B Minor in spring 2022. The soprano will also be a guest again at the Wintermärchen concerts in Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie in December, followed by a swinging turn of the year as Franziska Cagliari in the Strauss operetta Wiener Blut at Linz’s Brucknerhaus.
