Brigitte Oelke

Elegance, power and a killer voice


An underground party rouses a revue theatre that has stood empty for decades from a deep sleep. A young guest loses himself in the extraordinary aura of this stunning setting. The former theatre director rekindles the splendour and glamour of times past in his mind’s eye. Past and present blur in a euphoric waking dream. While everything dissolves, floats and spins in front of him – and even the floor disappears from beneath him – he senses the support that he seeks: the person that means everything to him. THE ONE.

I was having a great time in Vienna in 2015, playing the Killer Queen in WE WILL ROCK YOU

The coolest thing about it was that Queen were playing in the same Venue at the same time. Brian, Roger and me were having the anniversary of playing thegerman production of WE WILL ROCK YOU for more than a decade. Aaaand I was having a day-off. What a lovely twist of fate!

It was such a great pleasure to me meeting Brian and Roger again, after a long time. Sure, it was a bit crowdy because our whole cast was joining after playing the show.

I would like to thank for providing some of the pictures on this page.

Mr. Rock'n'Rohles is one of the rare Queen-Experts, if it comes to the music, that the master himself, Mr. May, is listening to. Therefore Frank Rohles created a killer-cover-version of Queen's «Don't Stop Me Now» which we perform on my EP - Discover Me !
A must-have for every Queen-Fan ... and guess what ...
Brian and Roger like it!

On Sunday 17th, January 2016 I am transforming into Norma Desmond, performing the final show of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Sunset Boulevard at the Theater Bielefeld, Germany. 

I would like to thank all the lovely people back- and on-stage for their professional support. Only with such a team I was able to pull out the necessary emotions that touched the critics and the audience in the same way.

Tonight the show will be sold-out and I guess it will be a magical derniere! And now Mr. DeMille, I am prepared for the close-up ...

Brigitte Oelke // The Private Session

»The Private Session« - Finest acoustic music by Brigitte Oelke

In 2010 we were founding our own little music label called StagePeople. The first release was in 2011 with the debut of »The Private Session«. The idea behind this album was to professionally minimalize some of the most beautiful pop- and rocksongs and purely present them only with vocals, guitar and piano. 

With the support of my dear friend Frank Rohles I was collecting my first experiences as a producer and the result is this beautiful piece of art.

»The Private Session LIVE« was also born in this time and since then I am playing in variously venues, e.g. LOK-Remise St. Gallen, Volksbühne Berlin (Grüner Salon), Theater Bielefeld, TAM Bielefeld. So watch out for my upcoming events. I would like to meet you in one of these »Private Sessions«.
