Romanian tenor Ioan Hotea studied in Bucharest. As ensemble member of the Bucharest National Opera, his roles included Nemorino (“L'elisir d'amore”), Count Almaviva (“Il barbiere di Siviglia”), Don Ottavio (“Don Giovanni”) and Rinuccio ("Gianni Schicchi"). He made headlines in 2015 when he won the Operalia Singing Competition in London, and has since been in demand worldwide, with performances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Opéra de Paris, the Vienna State Opera, Zurich Opera and Opéra de Monte-Carlo, in roles such as Ernesto ("Don Pasquale"), Tebaldo ("I Capuleti e i Montecchi"), Ferrando ("Così fan tutte"), Almaviva, Ernesto and Cassio ("Otello"). He made his house debut in the role of Ernesto at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf, followed by Lord Arturo Talbot ("I puritani") and Tonio ("La fille du régiment") in 2020. At the Staatsoper Stuttgart he also sang Ernesto and Almaviva, followed by Chevalier des Grieux ("Manon") and Almaviva at the Greek National Opera in Athens, and Elvino ("La sonnambula") at the Frankfurt Opera.

Since 2015, his roles in Wiesbaden have included Alfredo ("La Traviata"), Ernesto, Ferrando, Nemorino, Don Ottavio ("Don Giovanni"), as well as role debuts as Tamino ("Die Zauberflöte"), Chevalier des Grieux ("Manon") and Duke of Mantua ("Rigoletto"). After appearing as the Italian Singer in the 2019/20 production of "Der Rosenkavalier", Hotea returns to Wiesbaden this season as Count Almaviva in the new production of "Il barbiere di Siviglia", as well as Rinuccio in "Gianni Schicchi". In addition, he will make his role debut as Macduff in Verdi's "Macbeth".
