Peter Wedd

Tenor

Peter Wedd is an accomplished Heldentenor with a dark-coloured, fresh voice and ring. He is noted for his powerful stage presence. Most recent and future highlights include among others: Prince/Rusalka at Teatro Sao Carlos de Lisboa; Captain Vere/Billy Budd at the Finnish National Opera in Helsinki (led by conductor Hannu Lintu); Don José/Carmen at Norwegian National Opera in Oslo; Siegmund/Die Walküre at Longborough Festival Opera and at Trondheim Symfoniorkester Olavshallen; Das Klagende Lied at Theater Krefeld.

Peter Wedd is much in demand for his vocal abilities where he combines strong vocal endurance with beautiful Messa di Voce. This is enhanced by rich acting skills as well as intense physicality in his performances. The artist also enjoys the symphonic concert platform, in which he is especially well known for his interpretation of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Edward Elgar’s The dream of Gerontius and Gustav Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde as well as the 8th Symphony.
