Contemporary engraving of Dorothea Wendling, singing the role of Ilia at Munich, exact date unknown.

Maria Dorothea Wendling (née Spurni Stuttgart), ( born 21 March 1736 - Munich, 20 August 1811) was a German soprano.

She is probably best remembered today for being the singer for whom Mozart wrote the role of Ilia[1] in Idomeneo, re di Creta.
