His repertoire covers mostly dramatic roles such as Lohengrin, Parsifal, Tannhäuser, Stolzing and Siegmund, but also Florestan („Fidelio“), Paul („Die tote Stadt“) and Hoffmann („Les Contes d’Hoffmann“). It extends furthermore to lyric-dramatic roles such as Erik („Der fliegende Holländer“), Andrej („Chowanschtschina“), Prinz („Rusalka“), Bacchus („Ariadne auf Naxos“) and Faust („La Damnation de Faust“).

Klaus Florian Vogt is a much sought after guest at all major opera houses and at the Bayreuth and Salzburg Festivals. His career led him amongst others to Munich, Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, London, Barcelona, Vienna, Madrid, Milan, Toulouse, Helsinki, New York und Tokyo. 2005 saw his debut in Japan as Hoffmann („Les Contes d’Hoffmann“), in 2006 he debuted as Lohengrin at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and in 2007 he sang for the first time at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan (Lohengrin), where he later returned as Florestan („Fidelio“).
