Biography

Andreas Schager studied at the University for Music in Vienna and currently studies with Heidrun Franz Vetter in Berlin. Whilst still studying, he made his operatic debut as Ferrando in Così fan tutte at the Schlosstheater Schönbrunn. During the following years he sang at several important theaters and festivals including Koblenz, Frankfurt, Vienna (Festwochen), Bologna, Amsterdam, Gent, Antwerp, Cologne, and Toronto.

In summer 2009, Schager made a very significant step in his career, moving to a more dramatic repertoire. He made his highly regarded debut at the Tiroler Festspiele Erl as David in Richard Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg.
Since then, he performed the roles of Florestan/Fidelio, Max/Der Freischütz, Rienzi/Rienzi, Tristan/Tristan und Isolde, and Siegfried in both Götterdämmerung and Siegfried. Further engagements led him to renowned houses such as Deutsche Oper and Staatsoper Berlin, Teatro Real Madrid, Hamburgische Staatsoper, Teatro dell’Opera Rome, and Teatro alla Scala Milan. As a concert singer, Schager sang the tenor parts in Mahler‘s Das Lied von der Erde (Hamburg NDR) and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in Ravenna, Bonn, Tokyo, and Berlin.

His appearances as Siegfried/Götterdämmerung at Staatsoper Berlin, at BBC Proms 2013 in London, and at the Teatro alla Scala under Daniel Barenboim were highly acclaimed by press and audience and resulted in his international breakthrough.

Highlights so far include Apollo in Daphne in Cleveland and at Carnegie Hall in New York, Tristan at the Opera di Roma under Daniele Gatti, Gurrelieder with Philippe Jordan in Paris, Erik/Fliegender Holländer at the Hamburg and Berlin State Operas as well as at the Bayreuth Festival 2016, Siegfried/Götterdämmerung in Toronto, Tannhäuser in Antwerp, Siegmund in Leipzig, and the new stagings of Fidelio and Parsifal at Staatsoper Berlin under Daniel Barenboim.

Most recently, Schager took on all three major tenor parts in Uwe Eric Laufenberg’s staging of Wagner’s Ring at Staatstheater Wiesbaden as well as the title role in Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival 2017 and at the Hamburg State Opera.

In the season 2017/18, Andreas Schager will be performing the roles of Siegfried/Götterdämmerung at the Semper Opera in Dresden under Christian Thielemann, Tannhäuser at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Apollo in Strauss’ Daphne and Max/Freischütz at the Vienna State Opera, Tristan and Parsifal at Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin with Daniel Barenboim at the conductor’s stand, as well as Parsifal under Philippe Jordan at the Opéra National de Paris.
As a concert singer, Schager can be heard at the turn of the year in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony under Philippe Jordan at Vienna’s Konzerthaus.
