The repertoire of the dramatic mezzo-soprano Cornelia Helfricht includes parts such as BRANGÄNE and VENUS, AMNERIS and EBOLI, CARMEN and DIDON. After her brilliant debuts with these central roles at the Opera Leipzig, she now performs these parts at the international opera houses.
She was repeatedly invited at the Royal Opera Stockholm ( CARMEN, OCTAVIAN, VENUS an in autumn 2004 BRANGÄNE). she won acclaim from both critics and audience as DIDON in the new production of 'Les Troyens' at the Leipzig Opera House, as WALTRAUTE in a Wagner-Gala concert an in January 2005 as MARGUERITE in La Damnation de Faust. Cornelia Helfricht, a pupil of Astrid Varnay, also made a big impression as VENUS at the Nationaloper Mannheim, in a gala-performance at the Castle Neuschwanstein, in Linz and at the Opera Dortmund. Moreover, international guest appearances took her as PRINCIPESSA (Suor Angelica) to the Opera House Graz (2004), as the COMPOSER to the Opera House Nizza, to the National Opera House in Helsinki and the Teatro Lirico di Cagliari (ORLOFSKY in "Die Fledermaus"), the Volksoper Wien (CARMEN), the Teatro de la Maestranza (OCTAVIAN under the baton of Ralf Weikert), the Deutsche Oper Berlin and the Komische Oper Berlin, to name several, as well as to various festivals such as the Irish Wexford Festival where she appeared as the KÖNIGIN in "Die Königin von Saba" and the Festival St. Margarethen, where she was AMNERIS (2004).
