She was also seen as Mimì in La bohème, Gretel in Hansel und Gretel, Königin der Nacht in Die Zauberflöte, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Adele in Die Fledermaus, Madame Herz in Der Schauspieldirektor, La Fée in Cendrillon, Anna in Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor, as well as many others.
