Heinz Zednik is an Austrian operatic tenor, closely associated with the character tenor roles of Wagner such as Mime and Loge (Der Ring des Nibelungen) and David (Die Meistersinger von Nuernberg). He is also distinguished in roles such as Valzacchi (Der Rosenkavalier), Monostatos (The Magic Flute), Pedrillo (Die Entfuehrung aus dem Serail), the Scribe (Khovanshchina) and the Director (Luciano Berio's Un re in ascolto).
He appeared at the Bayreuth Festival in the 1970s, and was seen as the successor to Gerhard Stolze. During his time at the festival, he sung Loge and Mime in Patrice Chéreau's widely praised 1976 centenary production of the Ring cycle.
