The tenor Michael König is one of the most sought after singers in his fach and a regular guest at Oper Frankfurt, where he recently sang The Tenor / Bacchus in a new production of Ariadne auf Naxos (available on CD – OehmsClassics).

Recent engagements have included Erik (Der fliegende Holländer / The Flying Dutchman) at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, Florestan in Madrid and Stuttgart and Max (Der Freischütz) at the Semperoper in Dresden, under Christian Thielemann. Engagements later this season include Florestan at the Theater an der Wien and Janáček's Glagolitic Mass in Madrid. He studied with Rudolf Piernay in Mannheim.
