Announcing change of tenor for the November subscription concert

We respectfully inform our audience

Mr. John Mac Master, tenor originally scheduled to perform in our November subscription concert, has become unavailable to appear due to physical conditions. In his place, Andreas Schager, who sings in many major opera houses in the world to great acclaim, will sing in the concert. The program will remain otherwise unchanged.
Thank you for your understanding.

Andreas Schager, Tristan (tenor)

Andreas Schager studied at the Universität für Musik Vienna and currently studies with Heidrun Franz Vetter in Berlin.
Whilst still studying he made his opera debut as Ferrando/ Così fan tutte at the Schlosstheater Schönbrunn. In 2009 Schager made his first step towards dramatic repertoire as David/ Die Meistersinger, Florestan/ Fidelio and Steuermann/ Holländer at Tiroler Festspiele Erl. Since then he appeared as Florestan/ Fidelio, Max/ Der Freischütz, Rienzi/ Rienzi, Siegfried/ both in Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, Tristan/ Tristan und Isolde at renowned opera houses such as Deutsche Oper and Staatsoper Berlin, Teatro Real Madrid, Hamburgische Staatsoper, Teatro dell’Opera Rome and Teatro alla Scala Milan. In concert he sang the tenor parts in Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde and Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. His appearances as Siegfried/ Götterdämmerung at Staatsoper Berlin, BBC Proms 2013 in London and at the Teatro alla Scala this year with Daniel Barenboim, were highly acclaimed by press and audience.
Current and future engagements include Tristan/ Tristan und Isolde in Antwerp and Ghent, Max/ Freischütz in Cologne, Siegfried in Toronto and several projects at the Berlin Staatsoper.
