Peter Bronder

Born in England to German-Austrian parents, tenor Peter Bronder (Mime) began his career as principal tenor at Glyndebourne and Welsh National Opera. He made his American debut as Mime in Wagner’s Siegfried with The Cleveland Orchestra, followed by his Metropolitan Opera debut in 2005.

He has also appeared as Mime at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Berlin Staatsoper, Municipal Theatre of São Paulo, Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu, and Palermo’s Teatro Massimo. He has appeared as Loge in Wagner’s Das Rheingold at the Edinburgh International Festival, Oper Stuttgart, and the Ruhrtriennale Festival.

His other signature roles include Herod in Richard Strauss’s Salome, which he has performed in Milan, Madrid, Frankfurt, São Paulo, and Hong Kong; at the Bolshoi; and earlier this season with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony. He sang the title roles in Wagner’s Rienzi in Frankfurt, Britten’s Peter Grimes in Bielefeld, Pfitzner’s Palestrina in Frankfurt and Zurich, and Zemlinsky’s Der Zwerg in Frankfurt, Seville, and Lisbon. He has appeared as Erik in Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman in Rouen and Paris, as Shuisky in Musorgsky’s Boris Godunov in Turin, and as Luzio in Wagner’s Das Liebesverbot in Frankfurt and Madrid.

Mr. Bronder is a regular guest at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, where roles have included Arturo in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Cassio in Verdi’s Otello, Pedrillo in Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio, Andres in Berg’s Wozzeck, Selem in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, First Jew in Salome, and Trabuco in Verdi’s La forza del destino. In 2016–17 he returned to the Royal Opera as Yarushkin in Shostakovich’s The Nose.

Peter Bronder’s recent roles also include the Moneylender in Rachmaninoff’s The Miserly Knight with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and Hauptmann in Wozzeck at Oper Frankfurt. Other notable credits include the Bregenz Festival, Bavarian Staatsoper, La Monnaie, and San Francisco Opera.
