Internationally renowned, Alejandro Marco-Buhrmester has established himself as one of the most distinguished Bass-Baritones of his generation. Following his debut at the Bayreuther Festspiele as Konrad Nachtigall/Die Meistersinger in 2001, he was regularly re-invited to perform in roles such as Fritz Kothner/Die Meistersinger and Amfortas/Parsifal under P. Boulez. In the summer of 2006, he was praised for his debut as Gunter/Götterdämmerung in the new production of Ring des Nibelungen conducted by C. Thielemann.
In addition to his engagements as a Wagner Baritone, he dedicates a good amount of his time to the Italian and French repertoire as well. In recent seasons, he has performed Germont/La Traviata, Barbiere/Barbiere di Siviglia, Conte di Luna/Il Trovatore, as well as Posa/Don Carlo and Nabucco/Nabucco. Marco-Buhrmester is also established in the contemporary repertoire and has sung the title role in the world premiere of Reinhard Febel’s Sekunden und Jahre des Casper Hauser at the Dortmund Theatre as well as the title role in Jakob Lenz by Wolfgang Rhim at the Internationale Musikfesttage in Lucerne.
Further engagements led him to all opera houses of Berlin, as well as the theatres in Madrid, Barcelona, Genoa, Riga, Bonn, Essen, Dortmund, Mannheim, Saarbrücken, Wiesbaden, and the
Canadian Opera Company, Toronto, where he performed as Miller/Luisa Miller and as Germont/La Traviata in 2007.
He has worked with renowned conductors like Daniel Barenboim, Pierre Boulez, Paolo Carignani, Valery Gergiev, Eliahu Inbal, Fabio Luisi, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Christian Thielemann, and Simone Young.
In addition to his flourishing operatic career, Marco-Buhrmester is also in great demand as a concert singer. He sang Bach’s oratorios as well as Zemlinsky’s Lyrische Sinfonie, Beethoven’s 9th, and Mahler’s 8th Symphony. He was invited to the festivals in Bergen and Lucerne and went on tour with Mendelssohn’s Elijah alongside the Windsbacher Knabenchor, the SWR Sinfonieorchester, and Deutsches-Sinfonie Orchester Berlin and was celebrated in New Years concerts under Markus Poschner.
Most recently, he sang Haydn’s Die Schöpfung with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Pisa and Christus am Ölberge with the Bamberg Symphonic.
Recent opera engagements included roles at the Opéra de Paris and the Deutsche Oper Berlin, at the Ruhrtriennale as Kurwenal/Tristan und Isolde, as Gunter/Götterdämmerung in Tokyo, Cologne, at the Festival in Bayreuth under Kirill Petrenko as well as at the Bayerische Staatsoper, as Orest/Elektra at the opera in Rome, as Germont/La Traviata in Wiesbaden, and as Rigoletto at the Komische Oper Berlin.

Worried about Tristan and Gilda
This year’s Festival mémoires at the Opéra de Lyon dedicates itself to three milestones in opera production and lets them come to life again. One of them is the Heiner Müller production Tristan und Isolde from 1983, in which Alejandro Marco-Buhrmester will take on the role of Kurwenal for a total of six performances (March 18th/21st/25th/28th + April 2nd/5th). Conductor is Hartmut Haenchen.
In addition, the opera audience of Wuppertal may start looking forward to June, where Marco-Buhrmester will be on stage in the title role of Verdi’s Rigoletto. Performances: June 9th/22nd/24th.
