Maja Frydén - Soprano

Maja Frydén graduated from Stockholm University College of Opera in 2015 and has with her young, dramatic and beautiful soprano already participated in three productions at the Royal Opera in Stockholm.

First as Donna Elvira in ”Min bror är Don Juan” (My Brother is Don Juan), then as The Doctor in ”Min mamma är en Drake” (My Mother is a dragon) and now as the Soprano soloist in Myriads of Worlds, touring both Norway and Hong Kong International Arts Festival in the summer of 2019 and will have guest performances at The Malmö Opera in the fall of 2019.

In july 2019 Maja made her Wagner debut as Freia in Das Rheingold in Vattnäs concert barn wich she got raving reviews for.

”Die junge Maja Frydén etwa, die im, Rheingold die Freia singt und am nächsten Nachmittag als Rusalka und Tannhäuser Elisabeth zeigt, wie eine Stimme aus dem Körper kommt und doch gedanklich gelenkt wird.”

Stephan Moesch-Frankfurter allgemaine Zeitung

"..mit den wenigen heikel exponierten Freia-tönen macht Maja Frydén strahlend deutlich, dass mit ihr im jugendlich-dramatischen Sopranfach bals zu rechnen mit.

Peter Krause, Opernwelt

”Le Freia de Maja Frydén trône elle aussi acec und stature impressionnante et une voix de soprano dense, chargée d’émotion.”

-Olyrix

”..the biggest vocal Discovery, for non-swedes who didn’t know her theatre work already, was Larssons pupil Maja Frydén. Tall and striking she could almost be another Lise Davidsen in the making, tho more likely to specialise in Strauss than in Wagner (she would make a wonderful Arabella). Freia sing just about enough to make her mark but it was the concert that confirmed her major talent. Frydén opened it, appropriately, with Elisabeth’s greeting from Tannhäuser and later melted the entire audience with Rusalkas song to the moon. ... Her dramatisation in Sibelius’s great ballad-song Flickan kom ifrån sin älsklings möte” (The returned from meeting her lover) did not pale alongside the classic Flagstad version.”

-David Nice, The artsdesk

”... her voice resources are on a level that makes it evident that she will soon be featured in bigger roles.”
