Try-out for opera goers (Prova-på för operasugna)

My latest opera premiered! A 37 min piece for 4 sopranos, string quartet and piano. Text by singer Anette Stridh and myself. The subject contains artistic jealousy, quasi-politcal behaviours, true grief, cooperation difficulties, hidden power structures…
In short: Life itself
Thank you for a successful premiere February 5th – all talanted students at ”Artisten” – the Academy of music and drama in Gothenburg- who made the piece come to life. Conductor: Finn Rosengren, director: Mattias Ermedahl, both from The Gothenburg Opera. Now we have some plans for either this or next summer, to performe it with ”The three Coloraturas” (Anette Stridh, Angela Wannbäck, Ulrika Precht, together with Eva Malmgren) for whom the piece is originally written! at the Piteå Festspel. I will keep you updated.
