KURT STREIT
Tenor

Kurt Streit’s renown as a Mozart specialist has in recent years led him to further success in his broadening repertoire, encompassing works from composers such as Janacek (Glagolithic Mass in Frankfurt, Kat’a Kabanova in London and Amsterdam, both roles in Jenufa in Chicago, Amsterdam and Bilbao, Aus einem Todtenhaus at the Met), Wagner (Erik in Der Fliegende Hollaender in Barcelona and Munich), Berlioz (Les Troyens in Geneva, La Damnation de Faust in Madrid) , Bizet (Carmen with Harnoncourt at the Styriarte Fesitval in Graz), Weber (Euryanthe in Brussels) and Beethoven (Fidelio in Vienna), all the while keeping his Mozart interpretations alive with the title roles in La Clemenza di Tito and Idomeneo. His specialities also include Handel (Semele at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, Jephtha and Theodora with Concentus Musicus in Vienna’s Musikverein, Rodelinda in Paris and Glyndebourne, and Partenope in Chicago and in Vienna, recorded for Chandos) and Monteverdi—both Ulysse and Poppea with appearances in Berlin and Los Angeles.

Considered one of the world’s best Mozart interpreters throughout his career, Kurt Streit has performed Die Zauberflöte in 23 different productions around the world (over 150 times) and Idomeneo in seven different productions—in the opera houses of Naples, Vienna, Madrid, London, Hamburg, San Francisco and others. He regularly sings the title roles in Idomeneo (with future productions in Madrid and San Francisco), Lucio Silla (in Vienna and Barcelona), and La Clemenza di Tito (in New York, Vienna, Salzburg and Frankfurt).
