Renée Morloc completed her vocal studies at Stuttgart Music College and the Mozarteum in Salzburg. She gave her opera debut as Erda in Wagner’s ›Siegfried‹ at the National Theatre in Mannheim. Between 1992 and 1996 she was at Hanover State Opera. She is currently a member of the ensemble of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf, where her repertoire includes roles such as Fricka in Wagner’s ›Ring‹, Herodias in ›Salome‹, Ms. Quickly in ›Falstaff‹ and Genevieve in ›Pelleas and Melisande‹. It was chiefly in the role of the nurse in Richard Strauss’ ›Die Frau ohne Schatten› and as Klytämnestra in ›Elektra‹ that she has enjoyed her greatest successes not only in Düsseldorf, but also as a guest soloist in Stuttgart, Leipzig, Frankfurt, at the May Festival in Wiesbaden and in Canania, Sicily.
Morloc has also appeared at opera houses in Berlin, Helsinki, Munich, Dresden, Hamburg, Berne, Prague, Tel Aviv, Valencia, Tokyo and Brussels. In 2007 she made her debut at the Salzburg Festival as Larina in ›Eugene Onegin‹, returning there in 2012 as Stolzius’ mother in ›Die Soldaten‹ – a role which she has also sung at La Scala Milan. She is currently performing a number of roles ‘at home’ in Düsseldorf, including Fricka, Erda and First Norn in Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung, and also as Gertrude in Humperdinck’s ›Hansel and Gretel‹. Morloc’s concert repertoire is also very extensive and includes Bach’s Oratorio Works, Handel, Monteverdi and Dvorak, as well as Mahler’s entire symphonic work and the Requiem Masses by Ligeti and Verdi.
