How Klaus Florian Vogt Spends His Weekend

The heldentenor with Annette Dasch
in the Bayreuth Lohengrin.
"Klaus Florian Vogt is everything a heroic tenor should be: tall, handsome, romantic and in possession of the kind of voice that wins him standing ovations at opera houses from the Met in New York to the hallowed halls of Bayreuth, Germany, where he is currently appearing in Lohengrin. Mr. Vogt takes up the role of the Knight of the Swan for the duration of the opera festival, which ends August 28. When the singer isn't performing, he spends his free time flying a single-engine plane, surfing, riding horses and playing football with his sons and his neighborhood friends. Above all, he says, he's a family man and looks forward to just being home."

The interview discusses how he spends his weekend and topics like hobbies, his wife (also a singer) coaching him, favorite restaurants and whether he sings in the shower at home. Read the full article here.

  1. Thank you for your post. Klaus Florian Vogt has one of the most beautiful light lyrical tenor voices of our times. The staging of Lohengrin in Bayreuth is disgusting, but the singers have nothing to do with it.
