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

"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."

This summer, Valdemar was supposed to appear in a leading role in the world premiere of a new opera in Copenhagen, but due to the outbreak of Covid-19 this production has been postponed to 2021.

In September and October, Valdemar was supposed to sing the title role in Mozart’s opera Mitridate in Valencia, but this production has been cancelled in its entirety due to Covid-19.

Depending on the development, Valdemar will appear in several concerts in November and December.

Stay tuned!

 

Statement from Valdemar:

“Dear all,

I regret to inform you, that all my opera performances in July, August, September and October 2020 also have been cancelled or postponed due to the coronavirus. I really enjoy spending more time with my family at the moment, but I am also looking forward to participating in concerts and opera productions later this year.

Until then, stay healthy and I hope to see you all again very soon.

Love,

Valdemar”
