Timothy Sharp Debuts on Barihunks

We'd like to welcome German baritone Timothy Sharp to Barihunks. He'll be opening as Ulisse in Monteverdi's "Il ritorno d'Ulisse in patria" on Sunday, February 28th at the Oper Wuppertal.

Sharp was born in Augsburg, Germany and studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin. Known for his beautiful lieder singing, he has gone on to perform in Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Mannheim, Venice, Naples, Frankfurt, Leipzig and in the U.S. at the Chicago Opera Theater. His mother is the soprano and music professor Norma Sharp.

Here he is singing Schubert's wonderful piece "Du bist die Ruh":

A little trivia about the city of Wuppertal, which sits in the Rhine Valley near Cologne: It is where aspirin was invented and was the home to Friedrich Engels, who wrote the Communist Manifesto with Karl Marx.

  1. And don't forget my hometown, little Hildesheim, where he's a regular. A friend of mine had the pleasure of performing with him last year and she was all swoon... Well done that man! :-D
