The baritone Raimund Nolte received his formative training as a singer from Josef Metternich and is currently coached by Irmgard Hartmann. He has appeared in concerts throughout Europe and in Israel, Japan and the USA. His stage debut at the Innsbruck Festival in 1994 was followed by permanent engagements at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein, Theater Bielefeld and, from 1996, the Komische Oper Berlin. Besides focusing on Handel and the major Mozart roles, Raimund Nolte has devoted himself in particular to lyrical and “cavalier” roles. He has been invited to sing in major European concert halls, in Upper Italy and in a concert series with the Israeli Kibbutz Orchestra.
