About Wolfgang Koch:

Wolfgang Koch (born 1966) is a German operatic bass-baritone. He is best known for his performances in leading roles in the operas of Richard Wagner.

Koch studied at University of Music and Performing Arts Munich and went on to study under Josef Metternich in Feldafing and then Gianni Raimondi in Milan.

He was first engaged in a permanent role at the Stadttheater Bern in 1991. In 1993 he moved to the Stuttgart State Opera, where he stayed until 1996. He then pursued a freelance career and is now based in Vienna.

Koch has frequently appeared as Hans Sachs in Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. He made his debut in this role in 2004 in Bielefeld, and has since appeared in the role in Frankfurt, at the Vienna State Opera, and at the Royal Opera House. In Tristan und Isolde he has taken the role of Kurwenal at the Hamburg State Opera and the Salzburg Festival. In Wagner's cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen, Koch notably appeared as Wotan at the Bayreuth Festival in 2013. He appeared in the same cycle as Alberich at Hamburg in 2008. At the Vienna State Opera, Koch sang in addition to Hans Sachs also Kothner in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and Telramund in Lohengrin.

Wolfgang Koch has also found success with leading roles from other composers, such as the title role in Busoni's Doctor Faust (Munich 2008) and the cardinal legate Morone and the cardinal Borromeo in Pfitzner's Palestrina (Munich 2009 / Hamburg 2011 / Frankfurt 2010 under Kirill Petrenko). At the Theater an der Wien he appeared as Jochanaan in Salome and in the title role in Hindemith's Mathis der Maler in 2012. Furthermore, he has appeared as Georg Danton in Dantons Tod and as Barak in Die Frau ohne Schatten at the Vienna State Opera in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
