Baritone Andrè Schuen hails from La Val in Ladin (South Tyrol, Italy), where he grew up speaking three languages - Ladin, Italian and German, a versatility that is reflected in his current vocal repertoire. After many years of playing the cello as his main instrument, he decided to study singing at the University Mozarteum Salzburg with Prof. Horiana Branisteanu, as well as Lied and Oratorio with Prof. Wolfgang Holzmair. After his studies, Andrè Schuen was an ensemble member of the Graz Opera. Today he is at home on the major opera, concert and song stages worldwide.

In the field of opera, Andrè Schuen is highly sought after by internationally important opera houses such as the Bavarian State Opera, the Vienna State Opera, Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Teatro Real Madrid. In the current season he will assume the role of Conte in the new production of Mozart's Nozze di Figaro at the Vienna State Opera (conducctor: Philippe Jordan/director: Barrie Kosky). For the first time, he will embody two Wagner roles: Heerrufer in the new production of Lohengrin at the Bavarian State Opera (François-Xavier Roth/Kornél Mundruczo) and his debut as Wolfram in Tannhäuser at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden (Sebastian Weigle/Sasha Waltz) in May. He is also a regular guest in opera productions at major festivals such as Salzburg or Aix-en-Provence, most recently in the title role of Nozze di Figaro (Lotte de Beer/Thomas Hengelbrock) at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence and as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte (Christof Loy/ Joana Mallwitz) at the Salzburg Festival.
