Laurence Gien was born in South Africa. His love and talent for music was obvious from an early age. He attended the University of Cape Town and went on to the Hochschule für Musik in Munich. He bcame a principal soloist at the Gärtnerplatz Opera House in Munich , followed by residencies at the State Theater Kassel and the State Theater Braunschweig. He quickly became a welcome guest at a slew of leading European opera houses, from the Royal Opera house in Stockholm in the North to the Istanbul State opera in the South of Europe. He has also established himself in the world of art song and is a regular  soloist at major European concert venues. Needless to say he is also a  recording artist with labels such as BMG Ariola and Naxos. Television appearnces on Bavarian State television amongst others round off his artistic profile.
