He is a regular guest at leading opera houses all over the world, including the Berlin and Vienna state operas, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, the Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Teatro alla Scala in Milan and the festivals in Baden Baden, Bayreuth and Salzburg (most recently Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg 2013). He studied with Josef Metternich and Rudolf Piernay and spent time as a member of the ensembles at the Nationaltheater in Mannheim, Oper Bonn, the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Zurich Opera and, most recently, the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich. His repertoire includes Tchaikovsky's Eugen Onegin, Berg's Wozzeck, Mozart's Don Giovanni, Count Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro), Ford (Falstaff), Amonasro (Aida), Amfortas (Parsifal), Wolfram von Eschenbach (Tannhäuser) and Barak (Die Frau ohne Schatten).Conductors with whom Michael Volle has worked have included Zubin Mehta, Seiji Ozawa, Riccardo Muti, James Levine, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Ingo Metzmacher, Helmuth Rilling, Philippe Herreweghe and Valery Gergiev. He is much sought after as a recitalist, often accompanied by the pianist Helmut Deutsch.
