German lyric tenor Sebastian Kohlhepp is in great demand on the international opera and concert scene. As a member of the resident companies of the opera houses of Karlsruhe, Vienna (Staatsoper) and Stuttgart, he has thrilled critics and audiences in the great lyrical Mozart roles, and as a skilled interpreter of Baroque operas. Guest appearances have led him to perform at the Opéra Monte-Carlo, Vienna Volksoper, the Theater an der Wien (Vienna), and Basel Municipal Theatre.


In the course of the 2017-2018 season, Sebastian Kohlhepp will cover the role of Tamino (The Magic Flute) at the Theater an der Wien, and will sing his début as Belmonte (Entführung aus dem Serail) at the Salzburg Mozart Festival. Further guest appearances will take place in a new production of Cherubini’s Medea at Stuttgart Staatsoper and as Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni) in Cologne.


As a soloist in concert performances, Kohlhepp collaborates on a regular basis with ensembles such as the Stuttgart Bachakademie, the Collegium Vocale Gent, the RIAS Chamber Choir, the Stuttgart Chamber Choir, Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, and B’Rock, as well as with renowned conductors including Frieder Bernius, Philippe Herreweghe, René Jacobs, Hans-Christoph Rademann, Helmuth Rilling, and Andreas Spering. He has honored engagements at all the major European concert venues and a number of renowned international festivals. Upcoming engagements include Haydn’s Creation in Freiburg and Berlin with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra conducted by René Jacobs, a European tour featuring Mendelssohn’s Elijah under the baton of Pablo Heras-Casado, Frank Martin’s opera Le Vin Herbé at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, and Bach’s St John Passion with the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra in Korea.


A series broadcasts, DVD and CD recordings – for labels such as Harmonia Mundi and Sony Music – offer further insight into Sebastian Kohlhepp’s mulutifaceted talents.
