Stefan Heibach studied voice with KS Reiner Goldberg at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin, where he participated in masterclasses with KS Julia Varady and Nikolai Gedda.

During his studies, the young tenor already had the opportunity to perform interesting roles such as Admeto in Alceste (Gluck) and Bénédict in Beatrice et Bénédict (Berlioz), and was even engaged as a soloist at the Komische Oper Berlin.

In 2005, Stefan Heibach made his operatic debut as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni (Mozart) at the Landestheater Detmold. In the same season he repeated this role at the Niedersächsische Staatsoper Hannover and at the Theater Basel, Switzerland.

The following year he sang the tenor solo in the cantata Die erste Walpurgisnacht by Mendelssohn at the Philharmonie Berlin, and in 2008 he gave a lieder recital at Haus Wahnfried as a part of the Bayreuther Festspiele. Stefan has also given concerts and lied recitals in Japan, St. Petersburg, and Paris.

In 2009-10, the young tenor made three role debuts: Erik in Richard Wagner’s Der fliegende Holländer, Fritz in La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein by Offenbach, and Rinuccio in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi. In 2010-11, Stefan sang the role of Ferrando in Così fan tutte and repeated Erik, Count Almaviva as well as Lyonel at the Mecklenburgisches Staatstheater Schwerin.

In 2007, Stefan Heibach made his debut at the Bayreuther Festspiele as Augustin Moser in Katharina Wagner’s production of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and repeated this role in Bayreuth the following year.
