Matthias Störmer

"As Dandini, Matthias Störmer is the match winner of the evening. With his joyful play, his expansive gestures and juvenile-powerful timbre, he engages the entire ensemble – and even the gags suddenly work."

Matthias Störmer started his musical education at the age of 16 at the Carinthian State Conservatory before he began his studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. As a result of his participation in the masterclasses of Ks. Brigitte Fassbaender he was engaged as a ensemble member of the Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck. From 2010 to 2012 he sang there amongst others Joe Mulrooney in the world premiere of ‘The third Policeman’, Fléville and Fouquier-Tinville (Andrea Chénier), Happy (La fanciulla del West) as well as the Second Commissaire in ‘Dialogues des Carmélites’.

In June 2018, the young Austrian baritone celebrated his highly acclaimed role debut as Don Giovanni at the Theater Regensburg. Since the 2012-13 season, he sang roles such as Guglielmo (Così fan tutte), Papageno (Die Zauberflöte), Schaunard (La Bohème), Sharpless (Madama Butterfly), Dandini (La Cenerentola), Oreste (Iphigénie en Tauride) and Leopold (Im weißen Rössl), there. In 2017, the versatile baritone also gave a guest performance as Leopold at the Staatstheater Nürnberg. In the current season 2018-19, he will perform again in the title role of ‘Don Giovanni’ and as Papageno as well as in the new production ‘The Duchess of Chicago’ in Regensburg.

He has already worked with well-known directors such as Ks. Brigitte Fassbaender, Thaddeus Strassberger, Lotte de Beer, Lydia Steier, Aron Stiehl, Itay Tiran and Andreas Baesler, whom he was able to inspire with his powerful interpretations. His concert repertoire includes masses and oratorios such as J. Haydn's Timpani Mass, ‘The Last Seven Words’ and J.S. Bach's ‘St. John's Passion’, as well as works of contemporary sacred music.
