Reviews & Press

 
 

Theater Hagen - Wagner - Lohengrin - Elsa

The wonderful soprano Dorothea Herbert is an overwhelmingly good Elsa, with a beautiful silvery timbre that rivals the grail music.
 

- Monika Willer , Westfalenpost

The two main roles, Lohengrin (Tobias Haaks) and Elsa (Dorothea Herbert), are very well cast. Both have incredibly powerful and beautiful voices and play their roles very convincingly.

Dorothea Herbert is Elsa. Vocally she almost commands the grail‘s knights presence. Her rebelliousness is audible even in the most tender phrase. In this Elsa slumbers revolution.

Strauss - Salome - Salome

Dorothea Herbert masters the vocal interpretation of the role both technically and dramatically
 

- Jürgen Otten , Opernwelt

And Dorothea Herbert sings the title role with a tireless voice, sometimes blending into the waves with her lush soprano, sometimes standing out from them. Captivating until the long final monologue.
 

- Andreas Berger , harzkurier

In addition, there were consistently excellent performances from all singers: First of all, Dorothea Herbert should be mentioned in the excessively demanding title role. She was tasked with portraying Salome, who was returning to the family - contrary to what was intended in the libretto - as a woman who already had a whole range of different experiences, which she succeeded brilliantly. The way she mastered the many crazy intervals of her part cleanly and with absolute confidence in the pitch with her powerful soprano was really on a very high level.

Glyndebourne Festival Opera - Beethoven - Fidelio - Leonore

There is a tremendous house debut from Dorothea Herbert as Leonore, who finds her way to Florestan‘s cell disguised as a boy, and reveals herself in music of passionate intensity; she has the necessary wide range and power at the top and bottom of the register'
 

- Nicholas Kenyon , The Telegraph

Thank goodness for the terrific singing and musicianship.  Both German soprano Dorothea Herbert and English tenor Adam Smith are making House debuts and do so with impressive vocal composure and emotional impact.  When Herbert stands alone in front of the prison walls and began to sing ‘Komm Hoffnung’, for the first time in the evening the audience are united in their focus – drawn into Fidelio’s conviction that she can rescue her husband.  Herbert’s beautiful, shining soprano is captivating, and that beauty is allied with strength, which sees her rise to the top of Beethoven’s sometimes discomforting vocal lines with flexibility and ease.
 

- Claire Seymour , Opera Today

The singing was accomplished, and in the case of Dorothea Herbert, the German soprano playing Leonore, outstanding, passionate, soaring.
 

- Fiona Maddock , The Observer

Theater Krefeld und Mönchengladbach - Strauss - Salome - Salome

Every "Salome" production stands and falls with the Salome. That's why it's not so easy to perform this one-act play by Richard Strauss, although of course all roles are essential and all details are essential for success. It takes an outstanding dramatic soprano. Dorothea Herbert shines as the vocally outstanding Salome. The Salome of the theaters in Krefeld and Mönchengladbach is Dorothea Herbert. As she proved again at the premiere of the opera at the Theater Krefeld - the production started in Mönchengladbach in 2019 - she can currently be considered one of the great discoveries in her field. Congratulations to opera director Andreas Wendholz for the excellent choice. Herbert was rightly engaged to Prague as Senta (“The Flying Dutchman”), will sing in Lohengrin (Elsa) in Darmstadt and even in Dresden in 2023 in Die Walküre (still only as Gerhilde) under conductor Christian Thielemann. Vocally outstanding even without the slightest doubt, she copes with this thoroughly draining role as Salome with vocal and musical interpretational sophistication, with a vocal substance that never gets tired - sparkling high notes.'
 

- Christian Oscar Gazsi Laki , Westdeutsche Zeitung

Staatstheater Darmstadt - Wagner - Lohengrin - Elsa

(...) as Dorothea Herbert shows in her multifaceted interpretation which brilliantly illustrates the parts' emotional richness.
 
 

- Guido Holze , Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

Peter Sonn (Lohengrin) and Dorothea Herbert (...) seem - on the director's prescription, of course - sterile and sleek, and are vocally brilliant.
 

Frankfurter Rundschau

Dorothea Herbert enthuses as Elsa with an impressive and profound onset and strong and dramatic depth.
 

- Axel Zibulski , Darmstädter Echo
