Born in the 60’s

As a child of the 60’s born on the west coast of Denmark, it was not written in the stars that I should become an operasinger.

My parents owned a butcher shop and hoped that I would become a priest – but I followed my dreams.

My first vocal coach, Hugo Sieben, said that being an opera singer is like being a boxer: you have to be prepared to be knocked down and get back up, over and over again.

He was so right, but I would do it all again.
