From the moment I heard Siegmunds aria; Winterstürme, from Die Walküre by Richard Wagner. I fell in love with this amazing music and I knew from then on that I wanted to become a Heldentenor. Fortunately for me, nature gifted me with voice, stamina and body to portray Wagners great protagonists.
To achieve this I have studied for six years with Professor Johannes Mannov who is an expert on german repertoire and 5 years with Berliner Kammersängerin Eva Johansson who has had a long career as a Wagnerian soprano. I was raised in the town of Kalundborg in Denmark. Growing up I was quickly fascinated by music in all its forms. I learned to play the piano which soon after was followed by the guitar and became an accomplished classical performer on both instruments, however I missed the direct contact with the audience that a singer
has. Fortunately nature gifted me with a rather unique voice and I fell in love with exploring the voice´s capability, from there it was only natural to start singing opera. Opera lets you zoom in and experience how many colors and effects the voice can produce to express the widest variety of emotions possible.
During my studies at the Music Academy of Southern Denmark I often joined the productions of the local operahouse, The Funen Opera, where I have sung ensemble roles in Agnete and the Merman (Sehested), The Cunning Little Vixen (Janacek), Andre Bygninger/Other Buildings (Andy Pape), The Beggars Opera (Britten), Maskarade (Carl Nielsen), Vicomte Cascada in Die Lustige Witve and Tamino in Die Zauberflöte. Later I did Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana with a small opera troupe, Bastien in Bastien und Bastienne for small school children and Pollione in Norma with Operafabriken in Sweden.
In the spring of 2018 I was the understudy for Torsten Kerl in Odense Symphony orchestras’ production of Götterdämmerung.
