Valdemar appears in one of the leading roles in the world premiere of Signe Lykke’s new opera Nordkraft – based on Jakob Ejersbo’s best-selling novel of the same name. The production will be performed at the Royal Danish Opera (Takkelloftet) as part of the Copenhagen Opera Festival.
This new opera has been in the making since 2016 and Valdemar’s role has been written exclusively for him by composer Signe Lykke.
The novel Nordkraft takes place in Aalborg in Denmark, so fittingly the premiere of the opera will be at Aalborg Opera Festival 2021. Afterwards the show will travel to its final destination: Royal Danish Opera.
