Mahagonny, Jimmy

One of my most significant experiences on stage was singing Jimmy Mahoney in Kurt Weill’s opera Mahagonny, staged by legendary director Graham Vick in the 2016-2017 season.

The production involved a number of supernumeraries, cast with refugees applying for asylum in Denmark. Some of them are still in Denmark, but others had to leave, some even between one performance and another. It was a very emotional chapter in my career, but a deeply enriching one as well.
