Tomorrow at 14.00 me and Dorina, my pianist are going to have a lunch-concert at Linderud Gård, right outside Oslo.
I went to Galleri Høybråten and picked out 8 paintings, which I saw a song or an aria which could suit that particular picture. Tomorrow I will explain a little why I picked the pictures and I will give a short introduction to the story behind the song/aria which I picked.
Monday I begin my first year of masters here in Oslo. We already start musical rehearsals for “L’Incoronazione di Poppea” by Monteverdi on wednesday, where I sing “Soldier 1” and “Liberto”. The music is beautiful and the people we are going to be working with, top notch! The pianist/conductor is Clemens Flick, and the director is ,during the workshop we will have, Stefan Hærheim!
The other role I will be doing at the opera academy this fall is “Edwin Ronald” in Die Csárdásfürstin by Emmerich Kalman.
Further this fall I have also been invited, after my audition earlier this year, to sing at the Oslo opera festival. I will sing among other concerts, at the opening concert the 1st of October. The festival will take place the whole month of October.
I am also going to sing the wonderful tenor solo in “Carmina Burana” by Orff again, now at Fjellhaven in Gjøvik the 25th of october. So excited!
Seems like its going to be a great autumn with a lot of beautiful music.
Stay tuned, and in tune!
