Karl Prokopetz (Tenor)

Born: Germany

The german conductor and tenor singer, Karl Prokopetz, studied in Munich conducting with Hermann Michael and singing with Franzi Berger.

Starting from 1982 Karl Prokopetz was an assistant of Enoch zu Guttenberg and his choir Chorgemeinschaft Neubeuern. Parallel to it he led his own Oratorienchor, with which he performed Mozart’s, George Frideric Handel’s and Johannes Brahms big choral works.

Karl Prokopetz began his first engagement at the Staatstheater Wiesbaden as solo-repetitor and (with guest contract) as lyric tenor. Starting from 1992 he was solo-repetitor and Kapellmeister at the Niedersächsischen Staatstheater Hannover. In 2001 he changed it to a study-leader at the Theatre Erfurt. Here he is Kapellmeister for the season 2002-2003 and conducted, among other things, on the double premiere of Cavalleria rusticana and La Lupa – Die Wölfin, Vogelhändler and the premiere of Bachs letzte Oper (Stanley Walden). Karl Prokopetz gained an extensive repertoire within the concert hall range. He had great success in 1999 with Le Grand Macabre by Ligeti at the Teatro Nacional in Lisbon and with the resumption of The Ghosts of Versailles by Corigliano in Hannover. In the summer 2000 he conducted on J.S. Bach’s Matthäus-Passion (BWV 244) at the Europäischen Festwochen Passau and at the Kissinger Sommer the Deutsche Requiem by Johannes Brahms.
