Henriette Gottlieb (Berlin, 1884 - Łódź Ghetto, 2 January 1942) was a German soprano.

Gottlieb was born in Berlin. She performed the Wagnerian role of Brünnhilde in the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Paris, in a 1928 performance of Der Ring der Nibelung, when she was a young and promising singer.

She performed in the premieres of the operas Die Hügelmühle by Friedrich Koch (Berlin, 1918) and Holofernes of Emil von Reznicek (Berlin, 1923). Following the Nazi ban on Jewish performers, she lived in Berlin until she was deported to the Łódź Ghetto (in the General Government region of occupied Poland) in 1941. She died on 2 January 1942.

She was noted for her performances and recordings of Wagner's Brünnhilde:

Gramophone

— "The cast also includes the diminutive soprano Henriette Gottlieb, a fine singer who perished at Auschwitz 13 years later. Gottlieb makes a decidedly feminine Brunnhilde (more a Lehmann than a Leider) and von Hoesslin's conducting generates considerable excitement. The untameable 78rpm originals have been dealt with as skilfully as possible, using copies"
