The Dutch soprano Annemarie Kremer studied singing, piano and dance in Maastricht and made her debut as Ilia (IDOMENEO) at Theater Aachen.

Since her 2011 debut in the title role of Richard Strauss’s SALOME at the Vienna Volksoper Annemarie Kremer has established herself as one of the most distinguished performers of complex Strauss, Wagner and Puccini roles.
