Tickets & Tour Information For Matthias Goerne
Matthias Goerne, Germany's prolific international opera star
Matthias Goerne is one of the most accomplished and respected opera singers of the modern generation. A baritone, he has kept a keen focus on certain favourite composers, Wagner in particular, and has also performed carefully selected roles from more modern works by Alban Berg, Bartók and Hindesmith. He can also be seen in Shakespearian opera productions, working especially closely with Aribert Reimann. You can always expect something interesting when you buy or sell Matthias Goerne tickets on StubHub.
A specialist in Wagnerian opera
Matthias Goerne is possibly one of the most well-travelled opera singers in the world. He's appeared in every major opera house on the planet, as well as plenty that are a little more off the beaten track of the opera circuit. Many of his roles have been the lead characters in operas by Wagner. He's sung in "Parsifal" and "Tristan and Isolde", and has taken the role of Wolfram in Wagner's medieval love tryst, Tannhäuser, in several productions for opera companies across an array of countries. Other operas in which he has often performed include "Bluebeard's Castle" and "Lear", composed by Bartók and Reimann, respectively. On the odd occasion, he has stepped into the territory of other composers like Schubert, which he likes to cover in the company of renowned orchestras and conductors, performing several song cycles in Vienna with Christoph Eschenbach wielding the baton. So if Wagner is your particular taste in opera, keep a look out for Matthias Goerne tickets – his prodigious performance schedule has always included several of the great composer's operas each year.
Opera awards and international performances
Matthias Goerne has received a stunning range of accolades, many of them in recognition of his technical prowess and academic understanding of opera as an art form. At Düsseldorf's Robert Schumann Academy of Music he was appointed honorary professor of song interpretation, and is an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music. BBC Music magazine awarded its highest possible rating to his Schubert recorded works, and he has won France's prestigious Diapason d'Or magazine award, while London's Wigmore Hall has even recognised him with its own medal. Matthias Goerne has also displayed a penchant for devotional music (in addition to Schubert) and has given some utterly memorable performances of works like Beethoven's Ninth Symphony – the famous "Ode To Joy" – which he sang with the Gewandhausorchester of Leipzig. Noteworthy overseas performances with orchestras have included Wagner arias with the San Francisco Symphony and the Israeli Philharmonic. He's also performed some of Mahler's works with the La Scala Philharmonic. Matthias Goerne tickets are highly prized in the European opera world, so take any opportunity you can to get them on StubHub when his next performance is close enough to you.
