"NOTHING" on my mind...

 

Despite working mostly on "Nothing" these days, I actually have plenty to do! ;-)

 

Seriously though: My next operatic role is Karl in the opera "Nothing" by David Bruce. A fantastic newly composed opera, which premiered in England last year. It is based on the book named "Nothing" by danish writer Janne Teller, so it came as no surprise that Jyske Opera wanted to do a danish production of the critically acclaimed opera. I am super happy to be a part of the team. Rehersals start in december.

 

Meanwhile I am also slowly beginning working on my love-project: Schuberts Winterreise. This wonderful cycle of songs was one of the reasons I started singing in the first place, and in March its time for my debut with the piece!

 

Add to that a wonderful Christmas Oratorium with Copenhagen Phil, and I must say, I am getting the best of the three worlds of singing these days.
