The Birgit Nilsson Days

The Birgit Nilsson Days were inaugurated in 2018. Although a relatively new addition to the museum calendar, the summer masterclasses and concerts grew out of a long history of events in Västra Karup, in which Birgit herself performed many times.
 

“In interview journalists often ask in which place I have sung the longest or where I prefer to perform” reminisced Birgit in 1982. “Quite reflectively, I usually say that at the Stockholm Opera I have sung for 35 years, in Vienna and Munich 28, at the Metropolitan 22 and so on. It was not until now that it struck me that in my hometown of Västra Karup I have sung the longest.”

The Birgit Nilsson Days rekindle the spirit of those earlier concerts by supporting and highlighting young Swedish talent and drawing international artists to the small community of her home region in the South of Sweden.
