Juliane Banse


Juliane Banse was born in 1969 in Tettnang and studied in Zürich (where she grew up) and Munich, making her professional debut as Pamina at the Komische Oper Berlin in 1989. She initially specialised in soubrette and light lyric roles such as Zerlina, Ilia, Susanna, Marzelline (recorded under Simon Rattle) and Zdenka (with which she made her Metropolitan Opera debut in 2014), but more recently she has moved into weightier repertoire, including Wagner’s Elsa, Beethoven’s Leonore and Strauss’s Marschallin.
