Danish singer Louise Fribo had her breakthrough in Denmark at the age of 21 as Cunegonde in Candide shortly after completing her training as a “triple threat” at Bush Davies School in England.
She was discovered by one of the leading producers of the time and after having played Cosette in Les Miserables and Cunegonde in Candide she was awarded for her natural stage presence and outstanding voice with the prestigious Marguerite Viby Award. She then landed the role of The Fairy in the Danish TV
“Christmas Series” and subsequently became a name known to people across the country – especially the kids!
A career followed within musicals where Louise played a number of bigger roles before enrolling at The Royal Danish Opera Academy. Her natural voice expanded and her identity as a coloratura soprano founded the base for her operatic work. After her debut as Zerbinetta at Theater Lübeck, she sang at the Salzburg Festival 2006 in Mozart’s “Il Sogno di Scipione” and the festival announced her to be one of their “Shooting Stars” in their Generation con Brio series. - The opera has been recorded and released on DVD by Deutsche Grammophone.
Subsequently she has had engagements such as Queen of the Night at Volksoper Wien, Fiakermilli at Staatsoper Hamburg, Blondchen at Deutsche Oper am Rehin and Komische Oper, Waldvogel at Opera National de Lyon and Olympia, at the Komische Oper as well as The Royal Opera in Denmark, for which she received a Reumert Award.
Furthermore she had her role debut as Ariel – the extremely high and difficult role in the opera The Tempest by Thomas Adés, at Theater Lübeck. Louise received outstanding reviews for her Ariel in all of the European opera magazines, for her ability to express “the other worldly” and create a poetic turning point in the opera.
During the years 2010-12 she toured Europe and USA with the stageplay “The Infernal Comedy” starring US actor John Malkovich with conductor Martin Haselböck and Wiener Akademie Orchester.
Louise is a frequent soloist with all the orchestras in Denmark.
Oratorios include Exultate Jubilate, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Mass in B-Minor and Händel’s Messiah - among others with The Danish Radio Sinfonietta and Peter Dijkstra and most recently under the baton of Morten Schuldt-Jensen.
Conductors she has worked with include Simone Young, Gerard Korsten, Marc Soustrot, Ernst Märzendorfer, Robin Ticciati, Adam Fischer, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Michael Schønwand and Giordano Bellincampi.
During the past years Louise has performed in numerous concerts and won an award or the critics hearts for each of her roles as The Mother Abbess in Sound of Music, the Lloyd Webber one woman show Tell me on a Sunday and Christine in Love never dies.
Due to her many varied performances Louise has build a substantial following with performances to sold out houses whether it be as a soloist in 2016 with The Danish Symphony Orchestra as Queen of the Night, or at the concerts “Score” with music from the expanding music world within gaming.
The season 18/19 holds several concerts in Tivoli as well as the popular Ledreborg Concert with the Danish Symphony orchestra. Furthermore she will be playing the role of Carlotta in Phantom of the Opera at Det Ny Teater.
