Lehmann sang at the first Bayreuth Festival in 1876, when Wagner's first complete “Der Ring des Nibelungen” (=Das Rheingold, Die Walküre, Siegfried, Götterdämmerung) was performed.
Here she performed the rôle of Woglinde in “Das Rheingold” and “Götterdämmerung” and Helmwige in “Die Walküre” .
At the Metropolitan Opera in New York she sang several American premières of Wagner opera’s like Isolde in “Tristan und Isolde” (1886), Brünnhilde in “Siegfried” (1887) and “Götterdämmerung” (1888) and Venus in “Tannhäuser” (1889). In 1913 she published her autobiography “Mein Weg”. Her repertoire included over a 170 rôles.
