Zednik studied singing in Vienna before making his professional opera début in 1964 at Graz as Maestro Trabuco in La forza del destino. Shortly thereafer he was engaged by the Vienna State Opera where he remains a member to this day. He appeared at the Bayreuth Festival annually from 1970 through 1980, and was seen as the successor to Gerhard Stolze.

During his time at the festival, he sang Loge and Mime in Patrice Chéreau's widely praised 1976 centenary production of the Ring cycle. Zednik made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1981 as Mime in Das Rheingold. He returned to that house numerous times through 1998 in such roles as Don Basilio in The Marriage of Figaro, the Dancing Master in Ariadne auf Naxos, Monostatos, Pedrillo, and Prince Shuisky in Boris Godunov. He played Mime in the 1990 PBS broadcast from the Metropolitan Opera, for the largest viewing-audience (world-wide) of the Ring in history. Read more on Last.fm.
