The Austrian-American bass-baritone Steven Scheschareg has gained widespread acclaim for his striking stage presence, strong voice and his wide-ranging artistic capabilities. He is also the winner of the prestigious George London Prize of the Vienna State Opera.
As son of Austrian immigrants, he was born in Brooklyn, New York which is why music from exile componists is a project personally important to him.
His career started at the Landestheater in Linz and the Neue Oper Vienna and since then, he has been invited to sing in theaters in Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, and China. He is currently engaged at the Nationaltheater in Mannheim and the Vienna Volksoper. As a concert singer, he performs regularly in Vienna’s Konzerthaus, and has also sung in the Musikverein Vienna, New York’s Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center in Washington, Munich’s Am Gasteig, as well as the Musikhalle in Hamburg.
