Sabine Kalter (28 March 1890, Jarosław - 1 September 1957, London) was a Polish operatic mezzo-soprano. She made her professional opera debut at the Vienna Volksoper in 1911. From 1915-1934 she was a leading artist at the Hamburg State Opera. She was married to Max Aufrichtig (1879–1950), a banker in Hamburg. Their son, Keith Andrews (1920-1989), was a leading British art historian. The family fled Nazi Germany in 1934 and settled in London.[1]

She was committed to the Royal Opera House in London from 1935-1939. After 1939 she no longer appeared in operas, but still performed in concerts and recitals in London. She taught singing in London during the 1940s and 1950s.
