Erik gets the scholarship with the motivation that “… he is a young singer with a special interest in the theatre’s repertoire and that he, with a brilliant technique, manages to combine a genuine and beautiful bass voice with an uncompromising expression and energy.” He received the scholarship from the hand of His Majesty the King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf at a ceremony at Drottningholm Slottsteater.
Earlier this year Erik received one of Sweden’s largest music grants, Rosenborg-Gehrmans’ study scholarship (150,000 SEK).
Erik Rosenius is currently working at the International Opera Studio at Staatsoper Berlin, since autumn 2018. He is also part of Barbara Hannigan’s Equilibrium Young Artists Program.
