Efter några år i Darmstadt och Hannover kom hon till Wiener Staatsoper som blev centrum för hennes karriär. Vid denna tid sjöng hon fortfarande alt- och mezzopartier som Cherubino i Figaros bröllop, Dorabella i Cosi fan tutte och Octavian i Rosenkavaljeren, men från omkring 1960 började hon också framträda i dramatiska sopranpartier som Leonore i Fidelio, Färgarens hustru i Die Frauen ohne Schatten och Kundry i Parsifal, som hon sjöng i Bayreuth 1967.Där var hon också Brangäne i den berömda uppsättningen av Tristan och Isolde under Karl Böhm.

1968 sjöng hon för första gången fältmarsalkinnan i Rosenkavaljeren på Metropolitan under Bernstein och 1971 kreerade hon rollen som Claire i von Einems Der Besuch der Alten Dame i Wien. Till hennes övriga glanspartier hörde Carmen och Eboli i Don Carlos.

1957-68 var hon gift med Walter Berry.
