Aloisia Weber was the daughter of Franz Fridolin Weber (1733-1779) and the sister of Constanze Weber, who married Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Wolfgang had an eye on her first but after she married the actor Joseph Lange he fell in love with Constanze. Joseph Lange was a widower and they married in 1780 in Vienna. They had six children, but in 1795 they separated.

In 1779 she was engaged at the Hofoper in Vienna. Emperor Joseph II tried to fire her several times for unknown reasons. In 1788 she was fired but in 1790 she was engaged at the Italian Opera in Vienna.

Between 1796 and 1801 she worked for several opera houses. In 1801 she settled in Frankfurt am Main, where she also started working as a singing teacher. During the Napoleontic Wars she fled to Zürich in 1813 where she continued her work as a singer and a teacher. Among her pupils was Caroline Unger.

After her husband's death in 1831 her financial situation became difficult and she returned to Salzburg, where her two sisters lived. She died in 1839 in Salzburg and was buried at the St. Sebatiansfriedhof. In 1895 her remains were transferred to the grave of Alois Taux at the Kommunalfriedhof in Salzburg.
