The Munich-based soprano completed her vocal studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich with a Master's degree in Lied. Anna-Lena Elbert maintains a busy concert schedule with a wide-ranging repertoire from Renaissance to modern, covering all the great oratorios by Bach, Handel, Mozart and Mendelssohn, among others. She has performed with orchestras such as the Munich Symphony Orchestra, the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hofkapelle Stuttgart, the Berlin Baroque Soloists and the Porto Symphony Orchestra.
Already during her studies Anna-Lena Elbert had a special preference for early and new music and received important impulses from Christine Schornsheim, Kristin von der Goltz, Friederike Heumann, Konstantia Gourzi and Jan Müller-Wieland. She was a MozartLabor scholarship holder at the Mozartfest Würzburg and performed at the Schleswig Holstein Festival, the Rheingau Festival and musica viva in Munich.
Her operatic repertoire includes roles such as Adele ("Die Fledermaus"), Adina ("L'elisir d'amore), Norina ("Don Pasquale), Pamina and Queen of the Night ("The Magic Flute). Anna-Lena Elbert is a regular guest at the Opernfestspiele Heidenheim and made her debut at the Bavarian State Opera in 2020 in the leading role of a children's opera (debut performance). She will also make her debut at the Salzburger Festspiele in May.
