Helen Donath was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and studied at Del Mar College in Corpus Christi and with Paola Novikova in New York.
She debuted as a concert and Lieder singer in New York in 1958. In 1961, she became a member of the Opernstudio in Köln and the Hanover Opera House. In Hanover, she met her husband, the choir master and conductor Klaus Donath.
In 1967, she sang Pamina in Mozart's The Magic Flute at the Salzburg Festival, which began a long association with the Festival. From 1970 to 1990, she was a regular member of the Vienna State Opera. She is a sensitive singer with fine diction, while her evenly-placed voice is clear and sweet. With these qualities, she became an ideal interpreter in the Austro-German lyric repertoire.
She has performed all over the world including at the Vienna State Opera, Metropolitan Opera, Salzburg Festival, Covent Garden, La Scala, Barcelona, Paris, Firenze, Tokyo, Berlin, Munich, etc.
