The tenor Michael Roider was born in Salzburg where he graduated from the classical secondary school before entering the famous Music Academy Mozarteum pursuing both vocal and violin studies. While at the Mozarteum he served as a violinist in the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, the Camerata Academica and the Salzburg Pro Arte String Quartet. As a singer he was awarded prizes in the Salzburg International Mozart Competition as well as in the Schubert-Wolf-Lied-Competition of the Vienna Musikverein. He made his operatic début as Ferrando in Mozart’s Così fan tutte at the Basel Theater. After engagements and guest-appearances at numerous opera-houses, including those of Leipzig, Geneva, Karlsruhe, Bern and Graz, he was engaged by the Vienna Volksoper, where he made his début in 1994, and in the following year by the Vienna State Opera, where he continues as a member of the company. At both Viennese opera-houses Michael Roider sings a wide range of various rôles, ranging from Lehár and Johann Strauss to major rôles of the lyric and character tenor repertory, including those of Herod in Salome, Laca in Jenůfa, Loge in Rheingold, Painter in Lulu and of Captain Vere in Britten’s Billy Budd. At the same time he enjoys a career in the concert and recital hall.
