«SCHIEDAM - Buiten giet het maar op het binnenterras van de Korenbeurs is het publiek zich er afgelopen zaterdag nauwelijks van bewust. Ademloos luisteren ze naar een duet uit de opera Aïda. -- Draußen gießt es, aber auf der Innenterasse von der Korenbeurs ist das Publikum am letzten Samstag sich davon kaum bewusst. Atemlos hörten sie einem Duett aus der Oper Aida zu.»

Bio




Kerstin Krühler was born and raised in Emsdetten. She studied Music Education
at the Westfälische-Wilhelms Universität in Münster and at the the
Conservatory of Enschede where she graduated Bachelor of Music. She
continued her education at the ArtEZ Conservatory in Arnhem achieving
the Master of Music. She studied in the Opera Class at the Conservatory
Arnhem directed by Coloratura Elena Vink and in the Liedklasse with
pianist Marien van Nieukerken. She took part in Masterclasses with
Eva-Maria Westbroek, Barbara Hannigan, Arthur Janzen and Sissel Hoyem
Aune. After her graduation she joined the Dutch Operastudio in Amsterdam
 and continued her vocal studies with Dramatic Soprano Wiebke Göetjes,
who is her current teacher.
In season 2012/13 she performed the roles
 of Blanche and Madame Lidoine at the Amsterdamse bostheater and in
other locations in the Netherlands followed by a semi staged production
of Verdi's Aida where she sang Aida, the Mother in Amahl and the
Nightvisitors and the First Lady in the Zauberflöte at the Festival
Midzomerschans in Texel.
The following year the same festival invited
 the studio again to perform Bizet's Carmen in which Kerstin sang the
role of Michaela. In the same year she also took on the role of Suor
Angelica at the Delft fringe theatre festival. 2013 and the next two
following years Kerstin was invited to sing at Internationaal
Muziekweekend in Borne, there she sang the Euridice in Orfeo and
Euridice/Gluck and the Solo Soprano in Gounod's Cecilia Mass and Mirjams
 Siegesgesang.
In 2014 some performances with the same productions followed at places in The Netherlands.
Season
 2015/16 started with a special occasion. Kerstin Krühler got to sing
the Ortlinde and Siegrune in the Ride of the Valkyries which was a
special feature of the Dutch Operastudio in the premiere of „De Wolven“,
 a new piece in which homeless young people got the chance to sing
Wagner. This was performed at the theatre „De Meervaart“ in Amsterdam
and led by conductor Johannes Leertouwer and director Charles Hens. The
same year the production Hänsel und Gretel, where she sang the role of
Gertrud, was invited to several places such as the Ostadetheater
Amsterdam, Opera aan de Schie in Rotterdam and the Piccolaopera in
Uster/Zürich under the baton of maestro Salvatore Cicero.
Season
2016/17 she debuted as Zelatrice/Suor Angelica at Opera aan de Schie and
 Knusperhexe at Presail Texel. Furthermore she sang in the productions
of Hänsel und Gretel, Gertrud and the Mother/Amahl and the Nightvistors
at Opera aan de Schie.
This season Kerstin performed the roles of
Fremde Fürstin/Rusalka and the Mere Marie/Dialogues des Carmelites at
the Waterlandse Operazomer. The production of Rusalka was broadcasted at
 local TV. Recently Kerstin sang the Second Lady in the Zauberflöte, a
Dutch Operastudio production in cooperation with Fulco's mannenkoor and
conductor Michel Valk in the theater „De Vijf Zinnen“ in Amsterdam as
well as in Ruigoord, a place in which art finds cooperation with theatre
 and music. Kerstin Krühler got the Richard Wagner scholarship and
attended the Bayreuther Festspiele in 2014.
Next performances will
include title role of Suor Angelica in Zierikzee, Mere Marie in
Dialogues des Carmelites, Gerhilde in a semi-staged production.
