Magdalena Hinterdobler was born in Straubing in Bavaria, southern Germany. She studied at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Munich and at the Bavarian Theatre Academy August Everding under the guidance of Andreas Schmidt and, in lied, Helmut Deutsch.


Magdalena Hinterdobler has rapidly established herself as one of the leading German singers of the younger generation. She recently made her highly acclaimed debut as Eva in Wagner´s DIE MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG at the Frankfurt Opera, the soloist ensemble of which she will be a member from the 23/24 season. 


From 2014 to 2022 Magdalena Hinterdobler was a soloist at the Leipzig Opera, where she collaborated with the Gewandhausorchester in making major debuts in the title role in Dvořáks RUSALKA, as Micaëla in Bizet's CARMEN and as Marie in Smetana's THE BARTERED BRIDE. Recently she has intensified her work in the Italian genre, giving acclaimed performances as Liù in Puccini's TURANDOT and as Mimi in LA BOHÈME.


On the concert stage, Magdalena Hinterdobler's extensive repertoire encompasses the baroque, classical and romantic eras, and includes an ever-expanding range of contemporary repertory. She has collaborated with many celebrated conductors and orchestras, such as the Dresden Philharmonic, the Munich Radio Orchestra, the Hamburg Symphony, the Bamberg Symphony and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. The young soprano's dedication to the lied genre has borne particularly notable fruits in the close artistic partnership she has developed with the pianist Gerold Huber. In 2013, the CPO label released a CD of Wagner's early songs with piano.


In 2013, she performed the role of Dorella in Richard Wagner's early opera, DAS LIEBESVERBOT, with the Munich Radio Orchestra, and has subsequently performed several roles in the music dramas of Richard Wagner at the Leipzig Opera, including 3rdNorn, Ortlinde and Gutrune in DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN under the baton of General Music Director Ulf Schirmer.


In the current season Magdalena Hinterdobler will continue appearing in more dramatic roles, making her debuts as Agathe in Weber's DER FREISCHÜTZ and Chrysothemis in Strauss´ ELEKTRA .
