This will be a concert in a class of its own. Opera star Nils Wanderer and his guests will present music from Mozart to Lady Gaga, from Leonard Bernstein to Leonhard Cohen. After acclaimed concerts in Berlin, London, Barcelona and Salzburg, the rising star of the opera world is coming to Schwerin for the first time and, together with the Mecklenburgische Staatskapelle Schwerin, will give a concert that you will not forget!

Nils Wanderer is the first prize winner of the national competition "Gesang 2022" and was the first German and only countertenor to win Placido Domingo's "Operalia" 2022. In recent years, he has sung leading roles in opera and oratorio at the Teatro Massimo Palermo, the Salzburg Festival, Opera de Lille, the Berlin State Opera and Hanover, the Vatican in Rome, the Handel Festival in Halle, the Barbican Center London, the Palace of Versailles, the Philharmonie de Paris and L'Auditori Barcelona, among others. He has performed under the direction of Kent Nagano, Jordi Savall, Christian Thielemann, David Bates and Patrick Lange and has given recitals and concerts with renowned song accompanists such as Daniel Heide and Marcelo Ameral from Europe to North America and India. However, Nils Wanderer cannot be pinned down to one genre and is equally at home in the musical and pop genres. The role of the "Angel of Death" in the acclaimed musical Romeo and Juliet - Love is Everything was composed for Nils. He also works as a choreographer and director and writes his own songs.

The concert is the opening concert for Nils Wanderer's residency in Schwerin, where he will present all facets of his skills to the Schwerin audience. Together with the Mecklenburg State Orchestra and guests, he will create a rousing program in which you can certainly sing and dance along!
