The baritone Palle Knudsen graduated from the Royal Opera Academy in 1998 and in 1999 he became a company principal at the Royal Opera, Copenhagen. In his first season he enjoyed tremendous success as Papageno, and also sang Ping in Turandot, Guglielmo in Così fan tutte, Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro and Bobul in Kunzen’s opera Holger Danske. Other rôles at the Royal Opera have included Silvano in Un ballo in maschera, Dancaïre in Carmen, Don Giovanni, Lord Sidney in Il viaggio a Reims, Achillas in Giulio Cesare, Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Ned Keene in Peter Grimes, Pantalone in L’amour des trois oranges, Marcello in La Bohème, Dandini in La Cenerentola and Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus. He also made his début as Pelléas in Pelléas et Mélisande with great success. Palle Knudsen regularly performs as a concert singer, and is a frequent soloist with Scandinavian orchestras. Operatic and concert engagements have taken him to venues throughout Europe, the United States and the Far East, in rôles such as Don Giovanni and Guglielmo, the latter at Glimmerglass Opera as well as at the Pittsburgh Opera. In 1999 he received the Veuve Clicquot Prize, and in 2002 he was awarded the prestigious Gladsaxe Music Prize for ‘the combination of a wonderful stage presence with his natural vocal talent, which is in constant progress’. In 2006 he received the Holger Bruusgaard Legacy.
