When I was still an opera student I had the privilege of working with Lars Johan Werle – a great composer and a lovely person!
At that time we worked with the chamber opera ”Hercules”, and one day after a performance he took me aside and handed me a score with the words:
”I would really like you to perform this opera sometime!”
What he gave me was the score for the opera ”Kvinnogräl”. I´ve had it in my library since then, and now – in 2009 – I’ll finally get the opportunity to perform it in Vara Concert Hall and in Atalante.
Thank you for the music Lars Johan!
