Emelie Kroon

In 2015, I began my master’s degree in opera at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden and in February 2017, I will be playing the role of second handmaiden in Elektra at the Gothenburg Opera. I attended Stockholm’s Opera Studio and I have trained in New York and Frankfurt with coaches such as William Hicks, Anna Sims, Gerald Martin Moore and Alessandro Zuppardo. In Scandinavia, I have worked with Susanne Resmark, Helena Döse, Lena Nordin, Ingrid Tobiasson, Susann Vegh and Annalena Persson, to name a few.

In 2013, I had my London debut as Ulrica in Verdi’s Un ballo en maschera (A Masked Ball) at the King’s Head Theatre with Opera Up Close. In autumn 2014, I had my Swedish debut playing the role of Agnese in Bellini’s opera Beatrice di Tenda with The Södertälje Opera, which was also performed at the Stockholm Concert Hall. In 2010, I was a soloist on Krzysztof A Janczak’s CD Le Cirque de la Lune and, in 2007, I composed and produced the Opera of Myths in Stockholm.   In 2015 I produced, together with my amazing mentor Madeleine Uggla, the show In the Shadow of Thiel, with songs composed by Hugo Alfvén to poems by Ernest Thiel. I wrote the script with Michaela Alfvén who was also responsible for direction and on piano was the wonderful Teres Löf.
