Elisabeth Freyhoff



Where do I come from?

One part comes from the Georgian capital Tbilisi and the other from Kehl on the Rhine bordering Strasbourg.

Why do I sing?

Because it is without question the most beautiful, pure and complete form of expression.

And what do I like apart from singing?

All that is fun, challenging or enriching!

My own personal musical highlight?

My role debut as „Star Otis“ in „The Canterville Ghost“ – a production of the Chamber Opera Munich.

My motto?

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.


The Georgian-born soprano is currently studying at the Theaterakademie August Everding, where in this year, she can be seen in three productions: In March, she sings the 2nd girl in W.-A. Schultz’s opera „Achill unter den Mädchen“ with the Munich Radio Orchestra (music director: Olivier Tardy, director: Franziska Severin) at the Prinzregententheater. This will be followed in July by a musical theater production of Vivaldi’s „Juditha Triumphans“ with the Accademia di Monaco (musical director: Joachim Tschiedel, director: Alexander Nerlich). Furthermore, in October she will participate in the contemporary opera „4.48 Psychosis“ by Philip Venables, based on the eponymous play by Sarah Kane.

Elisabeth Freyhoff grew up in the German-French border town of Kehl. During her school years she was already a young student at the Freiburg Pre-College Academy and subsequently completed her bachelor’s degree in voice at the University of Music and Theatre Munich in the class of KS Prof. Christiane Iven. She received further artistic impulses through her work with KS Prof. Julie Kaufmann, Sabine Lahm, Nicola Beller-Carbone and Tobias Truniger, among others. She is a scholarship holder of the Studienstiftung des dt. Volkes and the Deutscher Bühnenverein. In the productions of the „Musiktheater im Reaktor“ at HMTM Elisabeth sang roles such as Baronin Freimann (Der Wildschütz), Serpetta (La finta giardiniera) and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) and participated in the highly acclaimed music theater production „s p u r e n“ (a cooperation with the Munich Biennale).

The Kammeroper München invited Elisabeth to perform in several productions in the past years. Most recently, she sang Susanna in the opera „Figaros Hochzeit“ by W.A. Mozart with the Kammeroper and the „Echo“ in „Hänsel und Gretel“ at the Bavarian State Opera.
She has given concerts and recitals at the MelosLogos Festival, the International Kalamata Music Days and the Strasbourg Château de Pourtalès, to name just a few. With the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen Elisabeth sang arias by Joseph Strauss, Mozart, Künneke and von Weber (under the musical direction of Joshua Weilerstein) in the Bremer Glocke and together with the pianist Julius Zeman she performed songs by Richard Strauss and Mozart in Mozart’s residence in Salzburg and in the Philharmonie im Gasteig.

In the coming season, Elisabeth will sing in Vienna for the first time. In a production at the Chamber Opera of the Theater an der Wien she will sing Serpetta in Mozart’s „La finta giardiniera“ with the baroque orchestra „La Folia“ under the musical direction of Clemens Flick and the direction of Anika Rutkofsky.
