Peter Svensson

Born in Vienna, Peter Svensson started his singing career as the soprano soloist of the famous Vienna Boys Choir. He graduated cum laude from Vienna Music Academy—among his teachers were Fritz Uhl and James King. Claudio Abbado brought Svensson to the Vienna State Opera on a two-year contract, in 1989/91. He became the great hope among the new generation of heldentenors after gaining wide international acclaim for his Rienzi at the Prague State Opera in 1991. He was prizewinner at the Richard Tauber Competition in London 1991 and received a stipendium of the Richard Wagner Society in 1992. In 2004 Peter Svensson was nominated for the prestigious Thalie award (Czech Republic).

Peter Svensson has performed at La Scala Milano, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Hamburg, Dresden, Madrid, Stuttgart, Bologna, Leipzig, Prague, Cologne, Geneva, Mexico City, Hannover, Tokyo and other cities—with producers and directors such as Ruth Berghaus, Hans Hollmann, Harry Kupfer, Hans Peter Lehmann, Pier Luigi Pizzi and Jossi Wieler. He is regularly invited to the festivals of Vienna, Edinburgh, Bergen, Lucerne, Prague Spring, Wexford, Ankara, Belgrave and Shaljapin Opera Festival/Russia.
