Lutz-Michael Harder (Tenor)

Born: 1951 - Langenfeld by Küstrin, Germany

The German tenor, Lutz-Michael Harder, began his music studies in the area of the church music. From 1972 to 1976 he studied at the Musikhochschule of Hamburg.

Lutz-Michael Harder made his debut in 1975 at the Festival of Eutin as Ferrando in Così fan tutte of Mozart. He was engaged at the National Theatre of Oldenburg, and then was a member of the National Theatre of Hannover. He sang Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni in 1978 at the Festival of Ludwigsburg. In 1985 he participated in the State Opera of Hamburg in the premiere of the second version of Udo Zimmermannís Die weiße Rose. From Hannover he undertook a number of further appearances, such as in 1987 at the Vienna State Opera in the opera Die weiße Rose mentioned above from Udo Zimmermann. His stage repertoire covered primarily parts in the lyric range, above all roles in Mozartís operas. He excelled also as a concert singer, particularly as a Bach interpreter.
