Kristiane Kaiser studied at the Salzburg Mozarteum and at The University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna with Margarita Lilova. Her first guest appearances lead her to the Vlaamse Opera in Gent, the Stadttheater Klagenfurt, the Volksoper in Vienna and later on to the Zurich Opera, Dresden State Opera, Berlin, Munich and Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Karlsruhe and Frankfurt. Since 2004, Kristiane Kaiser is a member of the ensemble of the Vienna Volksoper, where she has performed Mozart’s Donna Anna (“Don Giovanni”) and Countess Almaviva (“Le Nozze di Figaro”), Micaëla (Bizet’s “Carmen”), Martha (Kienzl’s “Der Evangelimann”) and Rosalinda (Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus”).

In 2015, she will sing her first Mimí in Puccini’s “La bohème”. Her repertoire includes also Cleopatra (Händel’s “Giulio Cesare”) and Pamina (Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte”).
