Eva Johansson is a Danish operatic soprano.
Born in Copenhagen and educated at Ingrid Jespersens School, Johansson studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and then the Copenhagen Opera Academy as well as privately with Oren Brown (New York City) and Susanna Eken (Copenhagen).
She made her debut at the Danish Royal Theater in 1982 as the Countess in Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro, subsequently singing Elektra, Salome and Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni.
In 1988, Götz Friedrich invited her to perform at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and she has been closely identified with that company ever since. During the period 1988–1993, she sang at the Bayreuth Festival: Elsa in Lohengrin and Freia in Das Rheingold, returning in 2004 to sing Sieglinde in Die Walküre.
