Kurt Ollmann


Kurt Ollmann made his Seattle Opera debut in 1988, singing Mercutio in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette. He also has performed at Teatro alla Scala, Vienna Staatsoper, Théâtre de la Monnaie, Rome Opera, New York City Opera, Santa Fe Opera, and the Wexford Festival in such roles as the Count in Mozart’s Nozze di Figaro, Pelléas in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande, Ramiro in Ravel’s Heure Espagnole, and the title role in the world premiere of Lieberson’s Ashoka’s Dream. Ollmann returned to Seattle twice in 1999, for Falke in J. Strauss, Jr.’s Fledermaus and for the Speaker in Mozart’s Zauberflöte. In 2000, he sang Frédéric in Seattle Opera’s production of Delibes’ Lakmé. Ollmann performs frequently in concert in the U.S. and abroad; he has sung with London Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Rome’s Accademia di Santa Cecilia, and the New York Philharmonic. His concert repertoire includes many contemporary works, such as Rorem’s Now Voyager, which he sung at Carnegie Hall in the world premiere. His numerous recordings include the role of Riff in Bernstein’s West Side Story, conducted by the composer. Most recently, Ollmann sang El Gallo in Jones’ Fantasticks in Milwaukee.
