Whether it be a surgeon or a performing artist, most people experience stage fright at some point in their lives. Varying levels of anxiety put stress on the body and impact one’s ability to perform, however, the ability to cope with a given situation leads directly to positive or negative outcomes. Franziska Buttgereit is a mezzo-soprano who has been a member of the Freiburg Theatre's extra choir since 2010 and its first director since 2017. In 2015 she began her singing studies with Prof. Christiane Libor at the Musikhochschule Schloss Gottesaue in Karlsruhe and has been collaborating with the University of Music and the Stadttheater Freiburg, which has led to a small role in performances and the DVD production of the same name "Cendrillon" by Jules Massenet.
