Until 8 May, Ulrike Mayer can be seen in a breeches role at Theater Bremen - she received outstanding reviews for her role debut as Sesto in Mozart's opera La clemenza di Tito after the premiere at the end of March.

"By far the star of the evening was Ulrike Mayer as Sesto, who achieved a stellar performance between richly coloured singing and moving emotional portrayal down to the smallest body fibres," enthused the neue musikzeitung about Ulrike Mayer's performance. The online medium Der Opernfreund says about the cast: "First and foremost is Ulrike Mayer, who left nothing to be desired as Sesto with her colourful mezzo and emotional interpretation." According to klassik.com "Ulrike Mayer fascinated with the warm luminosity of her mezzo-soprano and sparkling colouratura in a concise role portrayal of inner composure."

Until 8 May, the soprano can be seen on stage in Bremen as Sesto, embodying the closest confidant of Emperor Titus. Sesto's love for the power-hungry Vitellia makes him a pawn and ultimately an traitor. In the tangle of private inclinations and political duties, Sesto is ultimately dependent on the leniency of his friend Titus.

In the current season, Ulrike Mayer can also be seen at the Theater am Goetheplatz as Public Opinion in Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld and as Irene Molloy in Hello Dolly.
