Anna Gabler


The soprano Anna Gabler is a native of Munich, where she completed her vocal training with Jan-Hendrik Rootering and took master classes in lieder interpretation with Helmut Deutsch and Fritz Schwinghammer. She enjoyed her earliest stage experiences as a member of the Young Ensemble at the Bavarian Staatsoper before becoming a regular member of Deutsche Oper am Rhein in 2001. She then moved in 2005 to the Nuremberg Staatstheater for three years; since then she has been a freelance artist. Gabler began her career singing lyric soprano, whether Pamina in The Magic Flute, Micaëla in Carmen, or Gretel in Humperdinck’s fairy-tale opera Hansel and Gretel. Soon, though, she also added young dramatic roles such as Agathe in Der Freischütz, Elsa in Lohengrin, and, more recently, Senta in The Flying Dutchman to her repertoire. Gabler made her role debut as  Eva in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg in 2011 at the Glyndebourne Festival under Vladimir Jurowski; in the summer of 2013 she performs the same role at the Salzburg Festival in a new production by Stefan Herheim, with Daniele Gatti conducting. She has appeared as Gutrune in Götterdämmerung at the Bavarian and Hamburg Staatsoper companies, and she took part in the Bayreuth Festival from 2007 to 2010 as Ortlinde in Die Walküre. Gabler has additionally performed at the Dresden Staatsoper, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, and the Weimar Art Festival, where she sang Isolde’s “Liebestod” from Tristan with the Anima Eterna Orchestra under Jos van Immerseel. She performs Viviane on the premiere recording of Karl Goldmark’s opera Merlin.
