The tenor Rüdiger Ballhorn was born in 1973 in Homberg/Efze and had his early musical training in the Windsbach Boys’ Choir from 1981 to 1985. His training as a soloist began in 1993 under Horst R. Laubenthal, with whom he studied at the Würzburg Musikhochschule, followed by master-courses with James Wagner in Lübeck.

His first opera engagement was in 1999 when he sang Monostatos at the Theater Würzburg. In 2002 he sang in Don Giovanni at the Aix-en-Provence Festival under Daniel Harding in Peter Brook’s production, and in Verdi’s Falstaff at the Paris Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. His career has brought appearances as the Evangelist in Bach’s Passions and in oratorios by Handel and Haydn, and works by Mozart, music which holds a central position in his career. Since 2002 he has sung first tenor in the Ensemble Six and in 2003 was the tenor soloist in Charpentier’s Te Deum at the Leipzig Bach Festival.
