Vera-Lotte Boecker has been a member of the ensemble of the Komische Oper Berlin since the season 2017/18. In the 2019/20 season she will perform in three new productions there, the first one being Hans Werner Henze’s The Bassarids as Autonoe, directed by Barrie Kosky and under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski, a role she debuted at the Salzburg Festival in 2018 (Dir: K. Warlikowski; Cond.: Kent Nagano). After that she will perform the roles of Lydia in Jaromír Weinberger’s Frühlingsstürme directed by Barrie Kosky, and Ann Trulove in The Rake’s Progress in a production by Kirill Serebrennikov. She will further make her role-debut as Violetta (La traviata) at the Komische Oper, and also sing Pamina and Musetta there. Also in 2019/20, Ms Boecker will sing Prinzessin Natalie von Oranien in Henze’s Prinz von Homburg at the Staatsoper Stuttgart, in a production by Stephan Kimmig which is available on DVD. Her further recordings include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Dresden Symphonic with Michael Sanderling.

On tour with Barrie Kosky’s celebrated Zauberflöte, Ms. Boecker sang Pamina in Beijing, Tokyo, Paris and New York. She has also performed at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow, at the Staatsoper Hamburg and the Nationaltheater Mannheim.

At the 2016 Münchner Opernfestspiele, she generated an international buzz when she took over on short notice the part of Eudoxie alongside Roberto Alagna in a new production of La Juive directed by Calixto Bieito and conducted by Bertrand de Billy.

Ms. Boecker’s repertoire ranges from Mozart to George Benjamin, in whose internationally acclaimed opera Written on Skin she sang the role of Agnès. Further roles in her repertoire include Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Micaela (Carmen), Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel), Adele (Die Fledermaus) and Jenny (Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny).

Ms. Boecker was born in Brühl and studied singing at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler and at the Universität der Künste in Berlin.
