Richard Wagner, Götterdämmerung, "Helle Wehr" - a little snapshot from München 2003, conducted by Zubin Mehta and directed by David Alden. There were some quite sarcastic reviews of this modern production, but the cast was excellent and we made fantastic music.

Richard Wagner, Die Walküre - "Winterstürme wichen dem Wonnemond" - Stig Fogh Andersen, after receiving the "Hæderspris" award on the 29th of July 2018 at the CPH Opera Festival in Copenhagen. With Leif Greibe, piano.

The Minnesingers' contest from Wagner's Tannhäuser in a live recording from Copenhagen 2009, plus cast in the credits during the curtain calls at the end.

A little taste of the totally endearing, hardly known short opera "The Nightingale" by Igor Strawinsky (after the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen), produced in 1990 by Danish Radio in a setting that looks like a fairy tale :-) With Djina Maj-Maj, soprano, and Stig Fogh Andersen, tenor.

Beethoven’s “Fidelio” is standing for liberation and freedom in the opera world and is therefore often used for grand openings and other important events. Here we see the finale (second part of act 2) performed at the re-opening of London's Covent Garden opera house in 1999 after its renovation.

The controversial production of "Tannhäuser" in Novosibirsk by the young director Timofey Kulyabin was a sheer joy to take part in. Subtitles are available in english and german - choose your preferred language in the settings and then click on the button "CC".
