The Friends of Birgit Nilsson Society

An important friend society

The purpose of the Friends of Birgit Nilsson Society is to keep the memory of one of the greatest singers and most admirable voices in the history of modern opera alive.

Also to maintain awareness for the musical legacy Birgit Nilsson created during her life-time in supporting the development of the art of opera, and which lives on today.

Founded in 2010

The Birgit Nilsson Society was established at the same time that the Birgit Nilsson Museum was opened in Svenstad, on May 23, 2010.

It was formed on the initiative of Bengt Hall, Artistic Director of Malmö Opera and Chairman of the Birgit Nilsson Foundation, and Ingemar Olander, Chairman of Operakonstens Vänner i Skåne (OVIS) (Friends of the Opera in Scania).
