Beate Ritter has been a member of the Vienna Volksoper since 2010, where she gained the attention of the local press and audience due to her outstanding interpretation of W.A.Mozart’s Queen of the night, Blonde and J.Strauss ‘s Adele in the Fledermaus.

In 2013 her Blonde at Angers Opera in Nantes and at the Teatro dell’Opera Roma revealed her ability to set standards with Mozart’s roles written for coloratura sopranos. In December 2013 the Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz especially requested Beate Ritters unique version of The Frühlingsstimmen Walzer written by Johann Strauss (Sohn) for their Viennese Operetta Gala Concert at the Philharmonie am Gasteig, Munich.

On the international concert platform Beate Ritter interpreted the following composers J.S.Bach’s passions and cantatas, L.v. Beethovens Missa Solemnis, G.F.Händel’s masses, W.A.Mozart’s „Exsultate jubilate“, Mass in C minor, and his famous concert arias written for high coloratura soprano. Her Lied repertoire includes the works of F.Schubert, H.Wolf, M.Reger, R.Strauss, M.Kagel and A.Reimann.

Engagements at Theater an der Wien, with J.Haydns „Philemon und Baucis“ as Narcissa and with C.Monteverdis „L’incoronazione di Poppea“ as Damigella as well as at the children opera of the Vienna State Opera marked the beginning of her career..
