Anna Lucia Richter comes from a large family of musicians. As a long-time member of the girls’ choir at Cologne Cathedral, she has been receiving singing lessons from her mother Regina Dohmen since she was nine years old. Subsequently, she was trained by Prof. Kurt Widmer in Basel and graduated with honors from Prof. Klesie Kelly-Moog at the Musikhochschule Köln. Recent concert highlights have been appearances with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer, amongst others at the BBC Proms, the Orchestre de Paris and the NDR Elbphilharmonie, each under Thomas Hengelbrock, as well as the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecila under Daniel Harding, the London Symphony Orchestra under Bernard Haitink, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra under Jérémie Rhrorer. Her operatic repertoire includes roles such as Ilia (Idomeneo), Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and the roles of Eurydice / La Musica in Monteverdi’s Orfeo, in the acclaimed production by Sasha Waltz. In 2017, she had great success at the Theater an der Wien in Keith Warner’s new production of Henze’s Elegie für junge Liebenden in the main role of Elisabeth Zimmer. She also performs a large repertoire in major song centres such as the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, the Rheingau Music Festival, the Heidelberger Frühling and Wigmore Hall.
