In my projects, I focus on finding new ways to open the door to the world of classical music for the untried audience, in the form of, for example, children’s operas and lectures at evening schools, high schools and colleges.
It means a lot to me in particular to introduce children to opera. I am co-founder of the children’s opera company Pin-Upera (2013-2019), which has been behind the children’s operas “Clumsy Hans” and “The Nightingale”, the latter as a co-production with the Royal Theatre. In addition, I have written the libretto for the children’s opera “The Ugly Duckling”, the Royal Theatre, which was re-staged in 2022.
I am the owner of the opera company “Operativet”, which I co-founded with Freja Friberg Lyme. The opera focuses on making opera more accessible – most recently with the performance “The Elixir of Love” at the Copenhagen Distillery, which was a shortened version of Donizetti’s opera L’elisir d’amore. The performance was nominated for “Opera of the year / Operetta Performance” in 2021 by CPH Culture.
I recently performed “Drop Dead Diva” with Kind of Opera, which combines technology and opera with a silent disco format. I am also one of the ensemble “Melodrama” together with violinist Tobias Sneh Durholm and pianist Sofia Wilkman.
