Manuel Ried

Born in Augsburg, the tenor gained his first musical experience with the Augsburg Cathedral Boys' Choir and in the Bavarian Singing Academy with Hartmut Elbert. He studied at the Leopold Mozart Centre Augsburg with Edda Sevenich and Prof. Dominik Wortig, in Rudi Spring's lied class and Sibylla Rubens' oratorio class. He is a sought-after interpreter in the concert repertoire from Monteverdi's Marian Vespers to Mendelssohn's »Elijah«, especially in the works of J. S. Bach. He has worked with ensembles such as the Bachcollegium Stuttgart under Hellmuth Rilling, the Lautten Compagney Berlin under Wolfgang Katschner, the Stiftsbarock Stuttgart Enseble under Kay Johannsen, Berlin Baroque, La Banda and the Capella Regnensis. Opera and concert engagements take him regularly throughout Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy and to concert halls such as the Berliner Philharmonie or the Munich Herkulessaal. He has sung at the Prinzregententheater in Munich, the Pfalztheater in Kaiserslautern, the Theater Augsburg, the Theater Hagen and at festivals such as the Mozartfest Augsburg, the Mozartwoche Bad Reichenhall, the Internationale Bachtage Hessen-Thüringen, the Musikfest Stuttgart, the Opernfestival Gut Immling and the Frankenfestspiele. His operatic roles range from Baroque, such as Handel's »Alcina« (Oronte), Mozart's »Magic Flute« (Tamino), Rossini's »La Cenerentola« (Don Ramiro) to modern, such as Bruno Maderna's »Satyricon« and operetta, such as Künneke's "Vetter aus Dingsda". Lied singing is another focus of his artistic work. He has already released his first CDs. In 2016, for example, he recorded Nicollo Jommeli's cantata »Fede speranza e amor divino« for the Italian label Bongiovanni, and in 2018 he recorded Lrich Zeitler's »Veni sancte spiritus« for DMG.
