The Birgit Nilsson Days
“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 2022 Birgit Nilsson Days kick off for the fifth year in a row on 8 August in Västra Karup. With a focus on “home grown” talent, the week begins with four days of masterclasses and culminates in final concerts 13 August.
