Mathilde Bauermeister (1849 – October 15, 1926) was an opera singer who for decades held the record for most performances by a female artist at the Metropolitan Opera, a record now held by Thelma Votipka.
Bauermeister was born in Hamburg, Germany. She made her Metropolitan debut on November 11, 1891, as Amore in Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice. She specialized in comprimario roles. Her most frequent performances at the Met were as Marthe in Gounod's Faust (199 performances), Frasquita in Bizet's Carmen (144), Lady of Honor in Meyerbeer's Les Huguenots (100), Gertrude in Gounod's Roméo et Juliette (98), and Mamma Lucia in Mascagni's Cavalleria rusticana (97). These roles account for well over half of her 1,062 performances at the Met. She sang the role of Giovanna in Verdi's Rigoletto 44 times, including on the occasion of Enrico Caruso's debut with the Met.
She died in Herne Bay, Kent, England.
