Born in Vienna, he studied at the Vienna Conservatory and later in Italy with Gino Bechi. A celebrated Mozartian, he is a member of the Wiener Volksoper and has performed as guest artist with many international theatres. He also regularly appears in concert, both at Vienna's Musikverein and Konzerthaus as well as in important concert halls abroad. In 2013 he was awarded the Golden Schikaneder prize for his interpretation of Jochanaan (Salome) at the Wiener Volksoper.

Wagner's Ring in one evening:
but the man of the evening was Sebastian Holecek. As Wotan he displayed enormous breath control and resonance even for the longest phrases and impressed with his signature clear diction - a remarkable rendition and not just for someone who regularly sings in operettas as well.
