Where do I come from?
From the beautiful South Tyrol
Why do I sing?
Because I've always sung since I was a child and it's just the most beautiful form of expression.
And what do I like apart from singing?
Going to the mountains, cycling, yoga, baking, yodelling.
My own personal musical highlight?
The role of Rosina in Rossini's opera “Il barbiere di Siviglia, my first leading role in the Schönbrunn Palace Theater in Vienna.
