Grown up in Malente, graduated from high school in Eutin, 37 years working for Norddeutscher Rundfunk as a reporter and editor, most recently as head of service at NDR Kultur and head of opera editing: Rainer Wulff has been closely associated with the Eutin Festival since childhood, both privately and professionally. In addition to many years of press consulting, he was a narrator for Don Giovanni on the open-air stage in 2011 and has been regularly giving the gala evenings an amusing fine-tuning with his expertly ironic moderations since 2013. He is a sought-after juror at international singing competitions for opera talents; he indulged his passion for football for almost three decades as an honorary stadium speaker at FC St. Pauli, where Rainer Wulff has become an icon as the voice of the millernator.
