Werner Güra (Tenor)

Born: 1964 - Munich, Bavaria, Germany

The German tenor, Werner Güra, studied at the famous Salzburg Mozarteum. He continued his studies with Kurt Widmer in Basel and then with Margreet Honig in Amsterdam, while taking acting courses with Ruth Berghaus and Theo Adam.

After performing as a guest artist in Frankfurt and Basel, Werner Güra is now a member of the Semperoper in Dresden where he excels in Mozart and Rossini. From the very beginning of his career he has attached great importance to the balance between the opera house and the concert stage. He is much in demand as an oratorio singer and has sung in numerous productions like Felix Mendelssohnís Elijah (under Philippe Herreweghe) at the Salzburg Festival. He has also sung under conductors like Peter Schreier, Wolfgang Gönnenwein and Friedemann Layer.

Werner Güra has already made several recordings for Harmonia Mundi France under René Jacobs: Georg Philipp Telemannís Orpheus and J.S. Bachís Christmas Oratorio (BWV 248).
