Anne Wieben

Freelance Opera Singer/Founder and Creative Director of Opera on the Lake

Soprano Anne Wieben has been hailed by critics as a ‘true diva’ (Kronezeitung Voralberg) with a ‘hint of femme fatal in her velvety soprano’ (Süddeutschezeitung). She is the founder and creative director of Opera on the Lake, an opera festival in her home state of Minnesota.

Recent highlights include Wieben’s role debut in September 2021 as Annina in La Traviata at the Hofoper Pfaffstätten. In July 2021, she returned to Minnesota to sing and produce a series of operetta concerts with Opera on the Lake. In October 2019, Wieben starred as Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus with Musiktheater Vorarlberg. Reviews praised her as “a radiant diva with dramatic versatility” (Kulturzeitschrift). Also in 2019, Anne covered the role of Médée in Cherubini’s opera of the same name at the prestigious Salzburger Festspiele. Summer 2019 saw Anne once more as Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, first with Oper Rund Um and the Wir Sind Wien festival in June, and then in July with Opera on the Lake. Wieben performs regularly with Vienna’s interactive theater ensemble, Nesterval. In October 2020, Nesterval’s immersive online play “Der Kreisky Test” won the coveted Nestroy Prize (Austrian Theater Prize) for it’s contribution to the performing arts during the pandemic.
