Tomislav Mužek

Vita

After his studies in Vienna, the Croatian tenor won first prize at the 1999 Ferruccio Tagliavini Competition in Deutschlandsberg, Austria.

Tomislav Mužek was engaged at the Bremen opera house in 2000 (where he sang Don Ottavio, Alfredo, Ferrando, Tamino and Rodolfo) and remained a member of the ensemble till 2002.

Since then, the tenor has been a welcome guest at all the great opera houses, appearing at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, the Staatsoper in Berlin, the Hamburgische Staatsoper, the Semperoper in Dresden, the Volksoper in Vienna, La Scala in Milan, the Teatro Communale in Florence, Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb, the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse and the Opéra National in Paris to sing parts such as Don Ottavio (DON GIOVANNI), Tamino (DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE), Ferrando (COSI FAN TUTTE), Rodolfo (LA BOHEME), Alfredo (LA TRAVIATA), Don Carlos (DON CARLOS) and Nemorino (L'ELISIR D'AMORE).

In recent years, he has played roles such as Steersman and Erik (THE FLYING DUTCHMAN) at the Bayreuth Festival. Tomislav Mužek made a guest appearance with the Berlin Philharmonic under Bernhard Haitink performing the Missa Solemnis both at the Berlin Philharmonie and at the Salzburg Easter Festival. In 2015, he gave an acclaimed debut as Lohengrin at the Theatro Municipal de São Paulo.

Since the autumn of 2014 the singer has forged close links with the Semperoper in Dresden, where he has portrayed roles such as Tamino (THE MAGIC FLUTE), Rudolfo (LA BOHÈME), Max (DER FREISCHÜTZ), Lenski (EUGENE ONEGIN), Florestan (FIDELIO) and as The King’s Son in the new production of DIE KÖNIGSKINDER.

In the 2017/2018 season Tomislav Mužek returns to the Vienna State Opera as Boris Grigorjevich (KATYA KABANOVA) and to the Bavarian State Opera as Erik (THE FLYING DUTCHMAN).
