BO KRISTIAN JENSEN
The tenor Bo Kristian Jensen trained at the USA’s oldest existing academy of music, the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, where he won First Prize in the local Vocal Net Ohio Art Song Competition in 2003. At present he is studying at the Opera Academy in Copenhagen, and in the upcoming season he will be singing his first major role at the Royal Theatre as Count Almaviva in the Theatre’s new production of Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. He has earlier appeared as a soloist with several of Denmark’s smaller opera companies, both Musikteateret Undergrunden and the Århus Summer Opera, in works like Rossini’s La cenerentola, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel, John Frandsen’s Undermålerne and Tugt og utugt i mellemtiden, as well as Mozart’s The Abduction from the Seraglio. In addition he has already made many appearances as a concert soloist, for example in several of Bach’s great choral works, Händel’s Messiah, Mozart’s Requiem, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, Rachmaninov’s Vespers and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
