Who is your greatest vocal/musical role model?

It's so hard to choose! Malin Byström, Dorothea Röschmann, Veronique Gens and Magda Olivero are all singers that inspire me and whom I highly admire. If I had to choose only one, then right now it would be Malin Byström.

How would you describe yourself in three words/with three characteristics?

Social, ambitious and curious.

Salzburg or Bayreuth?

Bayreuth! In 2019 I received a scholarship, from the Swedish Wagner Society, letting me visit the Bayreuther Festspiele. It is an opportunity for young singers to get inspired by the whole experience and I truly was! I dream of someday in my life standing on that stage, singing a Wagner role in the Opera house especially built for that repertoire, to experience the wings of history meeting the sound of the music in the amazing acoustics. Imagine being a part of that!
