The Austrian soprano Hilde Gueden or Güden (1917 - 1988) was one of the most appreciated Straussian and Mozartian sopranos of her days. Her youthful and lively interpretations made her an ideal interpreter of roles like Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro.

In 1941, the famous conductor Clemens Krauss engaged her to the Munich State Opera, where she sang with much success. From this time she used Hilde Gueden as her stage name. However, she had some Jewish ancestry, and this forced her to leave Germany under the Nazis. Rumor has it that she was almost arrested by the Gestapo in Munich, but she had by then obtained a fake passport showing that she was a Catholic Polish woman and could avoid the arrest.

She was a most versatile and accomplished singer. Besides her usual Mozart and Richard Strauss, she was also an ideal Operetta singer. Her Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus is considered one of her best roles. In the Bel Canto repertoire, she became a famous Gilda in Rigoletto and Adina in L'Elisir d'Amore. She was also noted for her lieder and oratorio work.
