"In 2008 on eof my dreams came through: to put up an Baroque opera! During the summer I wrote a new libretto in swedish, a translation, for the opera La Liberzione di Ruggiero d´al Isola d´Alcina - named Häxans Ö (The Witch´s Island). The opera was first performed at Confidencen in Stockholm. Read more. Thereafter it was performed fin 2009 and over 1000 children got the chance to see and hear this "mad story". I believe that Baroque opera is not performed enough, especially for the younger audience.
A new performance - Henry and the Magic Passakalja - is was performed in the beginning of March in 2010 at Nybrokajen 11 in Stockholm.
In this opera, or opera musical, we meet a young Henry Purcell in an imaginative story about his childhood, how he experiences his father´s death and is taken care of by his uncle Thomas, organist at Westminster Abbey. Henry recieves a gift from his father, but before he understands what this gift is, witches, fairies and vampyres appear.
It´s a pleasure and privilege to work with young music students, professional singers and Baroque musicians. I hope that more young people will discover how fantastic and exiting Baroque music is.
