The baritone Dietrich Henschel is a singer whose repertoire extends from the beginning of baroque opera to modern day avant-garde. His leading roles in major international opera houses have ranged from operas such as Monteverdi’s “Orfeo”, Mozart’s “Magic Flute”, Wagner’s “Meistersinger of Nurnberg”, Berg’s “Wozzeck”, Krenek’s “Karl the V”, and many others. In addition to opera, a wide range of acclaimed recordings testifies to Dietrich Henschel’s success as a lied interpreter and an oratorio singer, including his collaboration with great conductors such as Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Herreweghe and Colin Davis. Mr. Henschel has also been exploring the intersection between art music, theatre, and the visual media through a staged version of Schubert’s “Schwanengesang”, through his 2013 film project “Irrsal”, which envisages the ramifications of love, guilt and sacrifice in the symphonic songs by Hugo Wolf and through his most recent project “Wunderhorn”, a feature film to be projected during his live performances of all Lieder from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” by Gustav Mahler.
