Rainer Mesecke received his first permanent engagement from 2017 to 2019 at the Theater Hof. His roles there included Daland in "The Flying Dutchman", Sparafucile in "Rigoletto" and General Bumm in "The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein" among other. He is now a member of the ensemble at the Staatstheater Braunschweig, where he was casted as Rocco in "Fidelio" (postponed to 2020/21) and Roy Cohn in "Angels in America" for the 2019-20 season.

German bass Rainer Mesecke grew up in Prenzlau in Brandenburg and studied voice at the Hamburg University of Music and Theater. Master classes with Robert Holl, Margreet Honig and Reri Grist complement his varied training.

While still a student, the young bass was able to convince as a guest on the stage of the Hamburg State Opera, in roles such as Sagriwow and Latunski in the contemporary opera "Der Meister und Margarita" by York Höller, directed by Jochen Biganzoli, under the musical direction of Marcus Bosch.

He worked with well-known ensembles including the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra and the Elbipolis Barockorchester. Concert tours have taken him to various European countries and to Russia. In 2015 he was a prize-winner of the International Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg Competition, and made his debut the following year as the Hermit in Weber's "Freischütz" at the Wernigerode Castle Festival (Werningeröder Schlossfestspiele).

Rainer Mesecke received his first permanent engagement from 2017 to 2019 at the Theater Hof, where he attracted attention with both buffo parts and serious roles. His roles there included Daland in "The Flying Dutchman", Sparafucile in "Rigoletto" and General Bumm in "The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein" among other. He is now a member of the ensemble at the Staatstheater Braunschweig, where he was casted as Rocco in "Fidelio" (postponed to 2020/21) and Roy Cohn in "Angels in America" for the 2019-20 season. In the 2020/21 season he can then be experienced in Braunschweig as Rocco in Beethoven's "Fidelio" and as the Speaker in Mozart's "Magic Flute" (2020/21 also cover Sarastro, 2020/22 cast Sarastro planned), as George Benton in "Dead Man Walking" and as Melisso in Handel's "Alcina". In addition, he will acquire the part of Vodnik from Dvořák's "Rusalka" as part of a study assignment at the Braunschweig State Theater.
