Bio


Britta Glaser studied voice at the University of Music and Theatre Leipzig, the Royal Academy of Music London, and the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.




She began her career as a mezzo-soprano, and is now focussing on lyric soprano repertoire.




Britta made her debut at the Oper Leipzig and Landestheater Altenburg/Gera while still a student. Recent engagements include the Hamburger Staatsoper/Opera Stabile, Opernfestspiele Heidenheim, Theater Aachen, and the Radialsystem Berlin. She worked with the Gewandhausorchester, the MDR-Sinfonieorchester, and the Hamburger Symphoniker. With avantgarde ensembles such as the AOIDE.Ensemble, she has performed numerous mezzo and soprano roles both at home and abroad.




Britta gives frequent song recitals in venues such as the Schumannhaus Leipzig, and the Komponistenquartier Hamburg, and has worked with many pianists including, Professor Phillip Moll and Matthias Veit. She has performed as oratorio soloist in such renowned venues as St. Michaelis Hamburg. Thanks to the wide experience of her first teacher, KS Professor Regina Werner-Dietrich, Britta is well-versed in the operetta repertoire and has performed in the Musikalische Komödie of the Oper Leipzig, and the Altenburg Schlossfestspiele.




She has participated in masterclasses given by Klesie Kelly, Laura Sarti, Charlotte Lehmann, Alessandra Rossi, Bruno De Simone, Claudia Visca, and Peter Berne. Prizes and scholarships include the Czeslaw Marek Stiftung Zurich, the Ottilie-Selbach-Redslob-Stiftung, the Bundeswettbewerb Jugend Musiziert, the Max-Liebhaber-Werk, the Mentosa Netzwerk Sachsen, and the Richard Wagner Verband.




Before pursuing her passion for singing, Britta earned a degree in fine arts and English at the University of Leipzig. She ran her own art-studio in Leipzig for several years; her large-scale oil paintings have appeared in many exhibitions.
