Fredrik Sixten’s opera “W – The Truth Beyond” has had it’s Swedish premiere and been performed at Ystad Opera.
Sixten has received rave reviews for his criminal opera which is an extension of Henning Mankell’s crime novels in which Wallander is the main character. We congratulate Sixten and the librettist Klas Abrahamsson for this success. Read here about who participated in the production – among others the Swedish Soprano Thérèse Wincent.

The fine reviews can be read in the following media (in Swedish):
Svenska Dagbladet
Dagens Nyheter
Sveriges Radio
Skånska Dagbladet
Ystads Allehanda

Coming up after this is the performance of Fredrik Sixten/Bengt Pohjanen’s Requiem during Nordiskt Kyrkomusiksymposium in Gothenburg Cathedral (Fri September 9 at 19.30) with Gustavi Domkyrkokör, Anna Jobrant – soprano, Karl Peter Eriksson – bas, Orchestra from Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Ingrid Sjönnemo – concert master, Michael Sager – conductor.

More music by Fredrik Sixten that is published by Gehrmans Musikförlag is to be found here. Our digital publications (where in some cases you can rehearse your separate choral part) are distributed by Scorx.
