Her career as a vocalist had begun when she won an Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts contest in 1948 with Someone to Watch Over Me. From the mid-1950s to the 1970s she worked primarily at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm in a variety of opera roles, including Floria in Puccini's Tosca and Harry Martinson/Erik Lindegren/Karl-Birger Blomdahl's opera Aniara in 1959. Dellert has also been the initiator and producer of a few gala shows for particular celebrations, such as the star-studded extravaganza financed by Sweden's Parliament and given in 1976 at the Stockholm Opera for the wedding of King Carl Gustaf och Queen Silvia (where ABBA first performed Dancing Queen and she performed O, min Carl Gustaf).[6] and an equally star-studded review at Södra teatern for her own 50th birthday in 1975. Dellert was the Director of the Ulriksdal Palace Theatre Confidencen. Since the mid-1990s she has been retired from the stage, officially retired from the Swedish Royal Opera since 1979, but briefly in 2005 made a critically acclaimed appearance as Maria Callas in the play Master Class by Terrence McNally at Confidencen and Lorensbergsteatern in Gothenburg. She dubbed the singing voice of Eva Dahlbeck for the role of Helena in the film Sköna Helena (1951). She participated in Melodifestivalen 1972 with "Kärlek behöver inga ord", finishing fourth. On Christmas Eve 2016 Dellert suffered a stroke.

Dellert was the mother of artist and entertainment personality Thomas Dellert. Dellert died on 5 March 2018, aged 92. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
