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.

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. In concert, Schager sang the tenor part 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.

Recent highlights were 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, Tannhäuser in Antwerp, Siegmund in Leipzig, and the new staging of Fidelio at Staatsoper Berlin under Daniel Barenboim.

Current and future projects include Tamino/Die Zauberflöte as well as the new staging of Parsifal at Staatsoper Berlin (Daniel Barenboim), Tristan in Rome, and Siegfried in Toronto, Leipzig, and Wiesbaden. Moreover, Andreas Schager has been invited to sing the title role of Parsifal at the Bayreuth Festival in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Further important debuts in New York, Dresden, Paris, and Vienna are planned for the following seasons.

Let the festivals begin!
The audience of this year’s Internationale Maifestspiele (International May Festival) in Wiesbaden had every reason to enjoy the performances, as “the Heldentenor of our age”, Andreas Schager, was on stage in all three great tenor roles of the Ring in the production by Uwe Eric Laufenberg. Under the baton of Alexander Joel and alongside Catherine Foster/Evelyn Herlitzius he sang Siegmund/Walküre, the young Siegfried/Siegfried, and the older Siegfried/Götterdämmerung.
After already singing Parsifal on the green hill last year on short notice, Schager takes on the role in all performances during this year’s festival in Bayreuth. The musical direction in the production by Uwe Eric Laufenberg will once more be assumed by Hartmut Haenchen.
Performances: July 27th and August 5th/14th/21st/25th.
