Norman Reinhardt, tenor
One of the leading tenors of the younger generation, Norman Reinhardt continues to enjoy a growing reputation on both sides of the Alantic in the lyric and bel canto repertoire. Current season highlights include Adolar in Christof Loy’s new production of Euryanthe for Theater an der Wien, Lurcanio (Ariodante) for Opéra de Monte-Carlo, and Flamand (Capriccio) for Teatro Real. He makes his role debut as Števa in Katie Mitchell’s new production of Jenůfa for Dutch National Opera.
Since graduating from the Houston Grand Opera Studio, Norman Reinhardt’s ongoing relationship with the company has included Ferrando (Così fan tutte), Bénédict (Béatrice et Bénédict), Lysander (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Ernesto (Don Pasquale), Jacquino (Fidelio) Cassio (Otello), and Tony (West Side Story). As a member of the ensemble at Oper Leipzig he extended his repertoire to include Alfredo, (La traviata), Lensky (Eugene Onegin), Conte Almaviva (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni), Tom Rakewell (The Rake’s Progress), and Tamino (Die Zauberflöte), all of which he performed under Ulf Schirmer. In particular, Tamino has brought considerable critical acclaim leading to a debut at the Bregenz Festival in David Pountney’s production under Patrick Summers (released on DVD by Unitel). Tamino has since become one of Norman Reinhardt’s signature roles with further appearances at San Francisco Opera and at Teatro Real Madrid in Barrie Kosky’s production under Ivor Bolton.
Norman Reinhardt made his debut at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival and at the Salzburg Festival as Tony (West Side Story) alongside Cecilia Bartoli and conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. He sang his first Pollione (Norma) alongside Bartoli at both Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, and he returned to Salzburg Whitsun Festival as both Rodrigo in La donna del lago, and as Lurcanio in Christoph Loy’s production of Ariodante. Elsewhere in Europe, appearances have included rare revivals of Bellini’s La straniera, Rossini’s Elisabetta, regina d’Inghilterra both for Theater an der Wien, and he made his role debut last season as Belmonte (Die Entführung aus dem Serail) at Semperoper Dresden.
Norman Reinhardt works with some of the world’s leading conductors and stage directors including James Conlon, Jesús López Cobos, Laurent Pelly, Christoph Marthaler and Jürgen Flimm to name but a few.
