Albrecht Kludszuweit received his vocal education in Dresden, and later worked with Viorica Lambrache in Kaiserslautern und with KS Prof. Uta Priew in Berlin.
He has been a member of the opera company of the Aalto-Musiktheater in Essen since 2004 („Opera House of the Year 2008/2009“), also performing regularly as a guest in other opera houses, including most recently the Semperoper Dresden, Staatsoper Stuttgart und Staatstheater Kassel.
Albrecht Kludszuweit has worked together with conductors such as Stefan Soltesz (Essen), Peter Schneider (Essen), Friedrich Haider (Essen), Paul Daniel (Brussels), Michael Boder (Brussels), Sylvain Cambreling (Stuttgart), Anthony Hermus (Dessau), Will Humburg (Weimar), and Simone Young (Hamburg).
He received further important impulses through his work with directors such as Phillipp Arlaud, Christof Loy, Dietrich Hilsdorf, Barrie Kosky, Johannes Schaaf and Krzysztof Warlikowski.
Parallel to his work on the opera stage, the tenor is also a sought-after concert singer. His vast concert repertoire includes the Oratorien of Bach, the major works of Handel and Mendelssohn, Dvorak’s Stabat Mater, and Janacek’s Ewiges Evangelium (The Eternal Gospel).
Ever since his debut as the Steuermann in Katharina Wagner’s Würzburg-production of Der fliegende Holländer, Albrecht Kludszuweit has sung regularly at the Richard-Wagner-Festtage in Leipzig, among others as Siegfried and Tannhäuser, both roles in the concert performances of the third act of Götterdämmerung and Tannhäuser. He further appeared as Loge and Mime in the „Ring an einem Abend” in Bayreuth and celebrated a major success as Mime in Siegfried and as Loge in Das Rheingold in the acclaimed Ring-production of the Anhaltisches Theater Dessau.
He returned to the Anhaltisches Theater Dessau in 2016 in the roles of the Offizier in Krenek’s Der Diktator and as Anführer in Weill’s Der Zar lässt sich photographieren during the Kurt-Weill-Fest. In addition, he portrayed in Dessau the role of the Hexe in the production of Hänsel und Gretel throughout the seasons 2016-2019.
In this season in Essen, Albrecht Kludszuweit appears as the Knusperhexe in Hänsel und Gretel, as Caramello in Eine Nacht in Venedig, and as Mime and Loge in Loriot’s “Der Ring an einem Abend.” In addition, he is heard in the tenor role in “Carmina burana” as part of the program of the 9. Symphony Concert of the Essener Philharmoniker.
