The German soprano, Claudia Kunz, was trained at the Richard Strauss conservatory in Munich, where her teachers included Ingrid Bettag, Benedikt Koehlen, Michael Schopper (Lied) and Ulrich Weder (opera). While still a student, she began to give extensive gust performances at German and other European opera houses as well as appearing in concerts and solo recitals.
In 1987, the year she passed her examinations as a concert singer, Claudia Kunz obtained her first permanent engagement at the Mannheim National Theatre. In 1993 she joined the Dresden State Opera, where she had sung the roles of Donna Anna and Euridice (Gluck) as a guest in 1992-1993. Her repertory also includes the Queen of the Night, Constanze, Fiordiligi, Musetta, Zebinetta, Sophie, Frau Fluth, Rosalinde, Nictoris (George Frideric Handel’s Belshazzar), Vitellia (La Clemenza di Tito) and the Countess (Figaro) as well as the four heroines in Les Contes d’Hoffmann. She has also built up a vast Lieder and concert repertory focussing on Classical and Romantic works.
