Christel Goltz ( 1912 - 2008) was an Austrian operatic  soprano. One of the leading dramatic sopranos of her generation, she possessed a rich voice with a brilliant range and intensity. She was particularly associated with the operas of Richard Strauss, especially Salome and Elektra, and with contemporary operas.


She sang one season in Plauen, before joining the roster of principle sopranos at the Staatsoper Dresden through the invitation of Karl Boehm in 1936. She remained at that house until 1950. She began appearing at both the Berlin State Opera and the Stadtische Oper Berlin in 1947, and at the Munich State Opera and Vienna State Opera in 1950. Beginning in 1951, she also made guest appearances in Salzburg, Milan, Rome, Brussels, Paris, London, Buenos Aires, and sang at the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1954.


Besides Salome and Elektra, her greatest successes included; the title role in Jen?fa, Marie in Wozzeck, Die Farberin in Die Frau ohne Schatten, Leonora in Fidelio, Elettra in Idomeneo. She created the title role in Carl Orff's Antigone and Rolf Liebermann's Penelope.
