About the soloists

Stefan von Korch (Tenor)

With a career on the rise, nationally and internationally, Ştefan von Korch performed this month on the stage of the Târgu-Mureş Philharmonic, the symphonic vocal work Stabat Mater, one of the jewels of Giacommo Rossini’s repertoire considered a demonstration of virtuosity for any tenor. Since the beginning of the year, she has also performed nationally at the Opera in Iaşi, in the sparkling role of Camille de Jolidon, in The Merry Widow 2.0 directed by Andrei Șerban and at the Romanian Opera in Timisoara in the production of The Merry Widow by Mario Di Carlo.

In the course of 2023, the tenor made the hearts of the spectators vibrate with masterful interpretations of the score specific to his voice in Carmina Burana, for which he is considered a standard and he was the only Romanian soloist in a tour of 27 cities in China. Other milestones in his career include famous roles in operas and operettas presented on the biggest stages in Romania: “The Barber of Seville”, “The Elixir of Love” and “Falstaff” (Bucharest National Opera), “Rigoletto,” “The Merry Widow” and “The Merry Widow 2.0” (Iasi National Opera), “I Puritani” (national premiere) “Rigoletto” and “The Barber of Seville” (Romanian Opera Cluj-Napoca) and others.
