Raúl Gabriel Iriarte was born in Bahía Blanca in Argentina. He has the Austrian nationality.

He studied singing with Mario Monachesi (La Plata/Argentina) and graduated in composition and conducting at the Universidad Nacional of La Plata.

He started his carrer as a lyrical tenor. He was particulary brilliant in Mozart operas. Besides Don Ottavio and Belmonte he also sang other lyrical roles like Rinuccio (Gianni Schicchi), Duca di Mantova (Rigoletto), Hoffmann (Les contes d'Hoffmann) and Alfred (Die Fledermaus). Today he sings numerous parts of the spinto tenor repertoire which includes the most difficult Verdi operas. He made guest appearances with the following parts in various opera houses :

Riccardo - Un ballo in maschera (National Theater Burgas / Bulagaria), Don José - Carmen (Music festival Steyr/ Austria and Sabadell/ Spain), Don Alvaro - La forza del destino (National Theater Rijeka/ Croacia,) Pinkerton - Madame Butterfly (Summer music festival Zvolen / Slovakia),

Don Carlo - Don Carlo (Bahía Blanca / Argentina), Pollione - Norma (Sabadell/ Spain), Faust - Mefistófele (Prague State Opera / Czech Republic).

Since 2015 he has been engaged as a guest at the Prague State Opera. There he sang the difficult part of Faust in Mefistófele by Arrigo Boito with great success. He also sang Don José at the same house and he was invited to sing this role with the Prague State Opera at the summer festival "Thurn und Taxis " in Regensburg (Germany).

" The great surprise of the evening was the magnificient and most intense interpretation of the role of Faust by the Argentinian tenor Raúl Gabriel Iriarte. The noble, characteristicly colour of his voice swung upwards to the powerful high notes and could also impressively perform the restrained, lyrical moments. "   Christoph Karner  "Der neue Merker"
