"He's a future world star"

"Valdemar Villadsen, a young tenor from Denmark, already has quite some experience in the haute-contre repertoire. You can certainly hear this in his performance of Glaucus. His voice never shows the slightest sign of fatigue and reaches the high notes with exquisite effortlessness."

- Opernwelt

"In the leading role as the Evangelist, Valdemar Villadsen was simply outstanding – effortless (also in the melismatic Tenor arias), delicate and with cantabile richness."

- Der Westen
"A very skilful Danish tenor"

- Frankfurter Allgemeine, Jürgen Kesting

"Valdemar Villadsen has an emotionally rich sound, sustained notes, pure, warm and bright, that brings heaven to earth and stops time for a few moments. Hopefully the record companies will pick up on this man."

Valdemar's blog

Stage presence - As a kid I wanted to be an actor. I was a nerdy kid – a Shakespeare fan.

Without my mom’s homemade cookies and several litres of tea, it would have been a traumatising experience for the incarcerated and extremely patient audience. Later, when I graduated from high school I took up a career as an actor, playing leading roles at a children’s theatre. Everything went well, but somehow I felt something was missing.
