Opera singer - chamber singer of the Vienna State OperaOverall artistic planning and project management
Herbert Lippert, Grammy recipient and Kammersänger at the Vienna State Opera, started his musical career as soprano soloist of the famous Vienna Boys Choir. Today, tenor Herbert Lippert counts among the most successful singers of his time. Among the first to support his unique vocal talent were Sir Georg Solti and Wolfgang Sawallisch, under whose conductorship he made award-winning recordings such as “The Master-singers of Nuremberg” or “The Creation”. Also, more than 300 recordings illustrate his international renown as a Mozart tenor.
A number of further renowned conductors, among them Riccardo Muti, Fabio Luisi, Franz Welser-Möst, Bernhard Haitink and Nikolaus Harnoncourt, were Herbert Lippert’s musical directors and companions at the most famous opera houses of the world: La Scala, Covent Garden London, the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, the Opera House in Munich, the Berlin State Opera, Zurich Opera House, and the Salzburg Festival. However, he has also been very successful as a lieder singer, having done recitals with Maurizio Pollini, Fabio Luisi and Wolfgang Sawallisch.
OMIA Operette Made In Austria, a multimedia historical-documentary music event, belongs to the exceptional artist’s latest projects.
With huge success and international acclaim, Herbert Lippert transitioned from the Mozart tenor to the heldentenor under the direction of Dominique Meyer at the Vienna State Opera, where he performed great tenor roles such as Lohengrin (Lohengrin), Erik (The Flying Dutchman), Loge (Rheingold), Bacchus (Ariadne auf Naxos), Paul (Die Tote Stadt) and Peter Grimes (Peter Grimes).
Another, very special symbiosis has been nurtured since 2017 at the Vienna State Opera. Herbert Lippert and the opera house jointly launched concerts and exhibitions that merge song with art – with great success.
