Jutta Böhnert

Born in Baden-Baden, the soprano studied with KS Prof. Sylvia Geszty at Musikhochschule Stuttgart from 1993 to 1997. She has been successful on important German stages such as Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf, Niedersächsische Staatsoper Hannover, Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz München and Staatsoper Berlin. She has a special affinity with Staatsoper Nürnberg and Staatstheater Kassel, where she sang many important roles in her field as a permanent ensemble member until 2002. From 2013 until 2016 she was also a member of the ensemble at the Theater Luzern. In addition to roles such as Fiordiligi, Micaela, Blanche (»Dialogues des Carmelites«) and Gilda, for whose interpretation she was nominated as »Nachwuchssängerin des Jahres«, the role of Sophie in Richard Strauss' »Rosenkavalier«  in particular was considered one of her showcase roles. She embodied the role alongside Dame Kiri Te Kanawa and under the direction of Stefan Herheim on the stages of the Staatstheaters Wiesbadens and the Staatsoper Stuttgart, among others. Her interpretation of Norma (Luzern) also brought international attention. At the Händelfestspielen in Göttingen and Halle as well as at the Dresdner Musikfestspielen, Jutta Böhnert was also able to celebrate great successes in productions such as Handel's »Poro, Re dell‘ India« as Cleofide or in »Teseo« as well as in »Ariodante« under the direction of renowned conductors such as Konrad Junghänel, Frédérico Maria Sardelli and Peter Kopp. 

Numerous concerts and tours have taken her as far as Australia, China and Japan as well as to Spain and Portugal, to London's Wigmore Hall and to the Lucerne Festival, especially with Baroque repertoire. With this repertoire, she has also appeared as soloist with important ensembles such as Rias Kammerchor, Windsbacher Knabenchor, Dresdner Kreuzchor and Thomanerchor Leipzig (including Johannes-Passion, Matthäus-Passion, Weihnachtsoratorium). 

Further guest appearances have taken her to many important stages worldwide, including the Bayreuther Festspielen, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, London's Wigmore Hall, Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo and the Lucerne Festival. Various recordings (including Weihnachtsoratorium 1-6 with the Windsbacher and Mozart's Requiem with the Thomaner Knabenchören) document her artistic work.
