JOHN LUNDGREN

Sunday 13th November

Biografi – John Lundgren is a dramatic baritone with an expressive stage appearance. He combines his powerful voice with an exquisite, theatrical understanding of the dramatic, operatic repertoire and among his signature roles you find remarkable Wagner roles such as The Flying Dutchman and Kurwenal and often also the evil characters – the bad guys of the operatic literature – like Scarpia in Tosca and Pizzaro in Fidelio.
