Tenor John Heuzenroeder, currently a member of the Cologne Opera, has had an extensive career taking part in over 50 operatic productions. His large operatic and concert repertoire ranges from Monteverdi to Eötvös. John's CD of Mozart's Masonic Music from 2018, recorded with the Kölner Akademie has received very enthusiastic reviews. In addition to his activities at the Cologne Opera in 2021/2022 John will perform at the Philharmonie in Berlin with Les Siècles at the Elb Philharmonie in Hamburg and at the Kölner Philharmonie with the Gürzenich-Orchester and at the Festspielhaus in Bregenz with the Wiener Symphoniker.

 

John studied at the Victorian College of Arts, Melbourne, and began his career performing at Victoria State Opera and with Opera Australia. He has performed at many Australian music festivals and with Australia's leading Symphony Orchestras. John completed his studies at the Royal Conservatoire in Scotland.

 

 

In addition to numerous lyrical roles John is particularly dedicated to the English-language repertoire, such as Peter Quint in Britten's The Turn of the Screw and Polonius in Brett Deans acclaimed Hamlet where he took part in the german Premiere in 2019. John's core activity however lies in the presentation of german Character-roles such as his very successful Herodes in Salome and future roles in Wagner's Ring.
