Lothar Odinius was born in Aachen and from 1991 to 1995 studied with Anke Eggers at the Berlin Hochschule der Künste, graduating with distinction and attending masterclasses with Ingrid Bjoner, Bernd Weikl, Alfredo Kraus and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. He has collaborated with leading conductors in his concert career, and in performances for television and recording, and has participated in a number of major festivals, including Bad Hersfeld, Ludwigsburg, Schwetzingen, the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, the Haydn-Festspielen Eisenstadt, the Schubertiade Feldkirch/ Hohenems, the BBC Promenade Concerts in London and the Edinburgh Festival. From 1995 to 1997 he served as a lyric tenor with the Brunswick Staatstheater, undertaking, among other rôles, those of Ferrando in Così fan tutte and Tamino in Die Zauberflöte. Guest engagements took him to Bonn to sing Tamino, to Copenhagen to sing Charles Lindbergh in Kurt Weill’s Der Lindberghflug, to Zurich for Alfonso in Schubert’s Alfonso und Estrella, and, in 2003, to the Salzburg Mozartwoche to sing Ferrando. In 2004 he appeared in the world première of Mendelssohn’s Der Onkel aus Boston, and at the Berlin Komische Oper in Hans Zender’s Don Quijote. His many recordings are testimony to the breadth of his repertoire and the distinction of his career.
