Hanna Plass was born 1989 in London. At the age of three her family moved back to Fichtelgebirge Germany where she grew up. This already made her two in one, Plass with double S and originally Plaß with the German sharp S. The early realization that you can be more than one thing at the same time set the tone for her work. In 1995 she had her first piano lesson and played her first part in a school theatre. At some point that would logically lead to opera, but until then she listened to the radio and started writing her own music.
