The Swiss singer Bettina Gfeller is going to make her debut as Vitellia this season in Basel. She stands for a new generation of singers who don't classify in boxes. Therefore she sings all repertory from Baroque to Contemporary (Debut at Deutsche Oper Berlin 2013 with Stefan Hankes political piece "Neue Szenen" about Anna Politkovskaia). Due to her big vocal range she is even capable of singing both Soprano and Mezzo roles. She did all her studies as a Mezzo and changed right before the Masters degree 2014 to Soprano. Already at Hochschule für Musik „Hanns Eisler“ in Berlin Bettina Gfeller could make major stage experiences while embodying the titlerole in Dido & Aeneas (Tempodrom Berlin) as well as as Zweite Dame, Cherubino and Dorabella in Berlin directed by Vera Nemirova. She is thankful for having wonderful Lied-concerts with experienced musical partners such as Helmut Deutsch (Vienna), Gérard Wyss (Switzerland) and Wolfram Rieger (Berlin). Her diversity goes from Lied to free improvisation, from Opera to Comedy, from Oratorio to studio recordings for movies. Nothing's impossible.

The regular work with Dame Felicity Lott, Peter Berne and Angela Denoke give her the needed inspiration. Bettina Gfeller was live at Deutschlandradio Kultur with Schönberg Op. 8 Orchesterlieder and Manuel Nawri - ECHO Ensemble.
