Bror Magnus Tødenes

Norwegian tenor Bror Magnus Tødenes sings Alfredo in our brand new version of Die Fledermaus, which premieres in March 2024 here in Bergen.

"Credit to Bror Magnus Tødenes for a sweetly sung Steersman, his “Mit Gewitter und Sturm” bright-toned and poetically delivered" -

Norwegian tenor Bror Magnus Tødenes studied at the Institute of Music at NTNU in Trondheim, and later at the Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia in Rome. In 2014, he released his debut CD, Remembering Jussi. In 2015, he received both First Prize and the Audience Prize at the Renata Tebaldi International Voice Competition, and in 2017 he was awarded the highly prestigious 4-year Statoil Scholarship.

Spring 2018 he charmed both audience and critics as the Steersman in the brand new production of The flying Dutchman at his first visit at Bergen National Opera. Before being the solist in Berlioz’ Grand messe des morts at the Bergen International Festival, he sang the title role in a concert version of Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito at The National Theatre in Prague, conducted by Marc Minkowski.

2019 Bror Magnus Tødenes made his debut at the Bastille Opera as Hylas in Les troyens by Berlioz. Before singing at our Operafest in Terminus October 2020, Tødenes interpreted the role as Jesus in Beehoven's oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives (Christus am Ölberge) in Grieghallen.

Spring 2021 he entered the stage in Bergen again, in the title role as the merciful emperor in Mozart's opera La clemenza di Tito, before he had his role debut as Rodolfo in La bohème, at The Norwegian Opera & Ballet.

Spring 2022 he played the film director Camille in the brand new version of The Merry Widow 2.0 here in Bergen.
