Born in Vienna, Heinz Holecek studied at the Vienna Conservatory and then at the Vienna Music Academy, before joining the Vienna Volksoper, making his début there as Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, a rôle he later undertook at the Vienna State Opera. His operatic repertoire includes the rôles of Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, Leporello and Masetto in Don Giovanni, Gugliemo in Così fan tutte, Gianni Schicchi, Fra Melitone, Dr Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Schaunard in La Bohème, and the Circus Director in The Bartered Bride. He has had an equally busy and distinguished career in operetta and in concerts and recitals throughout Europe and as far a field as Japan. He has also appeared as an actor and served as a stage and artistic director for festival opera performances. His many recordings include collaborations in operas, operettas, song recitals and Viennese songs, and he has appeared frequently on television.
