Tenor for Opera and Concert

After his vocal studies at the Hanover University of Music and Drama (Germany), the tenor Jan Kristof Schliep has been a member of the ensemble of the TfN · Theater für Niedersachsen (Theatre for Lower Saxony) for ten years.

For a few years now, he is a specialized freelance performer of roles in the character and lyric heroic tenor fach. He is particularly known for his clear diction and his »continuous presence on the stage«, which are regularly attributed to him. Since then, Jan Kristof Schliep worked with Orkest De Ereprijs and Steengroevetheater Winterswijk in the Netherlands and was a guest singer at the Landestheater Schleswig-Hostein.  In 2022 to 2024 he sang the role of Walter in Weinberg's "The Passenger" and Eisenstein in "Die Fledermaus (The Bat)" at Theater Altenburg-Gera.

In the 2024/25 season he will sing the role of Altoum in Puccini's "Turandot" at Stadttheater Bremerhaven.

His concert repertoire is broad and includes works spanning five centuries, from the works like Haydn's "The Creation" and Bruckner's "Te Deum" to the extreme part of the Swan in the Fire in Orff's "Carmina Burana".

Due to his intensive pursuit of the German language in singing, he has also recently started working as a pronounciation coach for singers and offers presentation courses for singers as well as non-singers in German, English and Dutch.
