Lorin Wey

In the 2016/17 season, 26 year-old Swiss tenor Lorin Wey will be heard as Meletos in Ernst Krenek’s dodecaphonic opera “Pallas Athene weint” with the Neue Oper Wien under the direction of Walter Kober, and also appears as the Prince in the European Premiere of the 10-year old (!) Alma Deutscher’s Opera, “Cinderella” at the Casino Baumgarten in Vienna.  He will also make his debut in June 2017 as Tanzmeister in a David Hermann production of Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos at the Theatre National de Lorraine in Nancy, France.

In the past years, Wey has taken part in several contemporary compositions: repeatedly with the Neue Oper Wien (2014 as Lawyer in Sir H. Birtwistle’s “Punch and Judy”; 2015 as Iwan in D. Schostakowitschs “Nos”) he debuted at the Stadttheater Fürth/D (Bruder in E. Milch-Sheriff’s “Baruchs Schweigen”) and sang three World Premiers (2013 as Tenor soloist in F. Reithner’s “Critical Mass” in the Jesuitenkirche in Vienna, 2014 als 2. Künder in the Opera “In Gottes Namen” by G. Mancusi, as part of the International Opernwerkstatt Schloss Laubach/Hessen, 2016 as Evangelist in G. Mancusi’s “Saint John’s Passion” in the Kalvarienbergkirche in Vienna).

He is also a regular guest soloist at the Bühne Baden (2015 as Mr. Erlanson in S. Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music”, and as Detectiv Fox in B. Binder’s “In 80 Tagen um die Welt”; 2016 as Sancho/Philippe in F. Lehár’s “Frasquita”).

In addition to opera, he is – aside from his active concert work, which comprises works of all eras and styles, Lorin is especially at home with the repertoire of J.S. Bach and the Viennese classical repertoire – and regularly performs as the tenor soloist in the most renowned churches in Vienna (Augustinerkirche, Jesuitenkirche, Imperial Chapel, among others).

The young tenor Lorin Wey was born into a Swiss-American family of musicians in Bern, Switzerland in 1990. After beginning his musical education with the Vienna Boys’ Choir and completing his Bachelor of Arts in Musicology with distinction, he studied solo singing, as well as song and oratorio with KS Gabriele Sima and KS Elena Filipova at the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna.
