Jens-Erik Aasb°

“Daland had to be flown in as an understudy but the young [...] Jens-Erik Aasbø does it well, wonderfully bass-spiteful and deviously cozy.”

Jens-Erik Aasbø is a typical representative of the great Scandinavian bass tradition. Well educated, with a beautiful voice and a great acting talent, he was engaged as the first bass in the ensemble of the Den Norske Opera & Ballett in Oslo immediately after his exam in 2011, where his artistic home is also today. Since then, he has played many roles in German such as Rocco, Daland, Fasolt, but also the classical roles of his profession such as Sarastro, Il Commendatore, Basilio, and others. In spring 2020, he will make his debut as Pogner in the new production of the ‘Meistersinger von Nürnberg’ in Oslo. Now, it's time to conquer the stages outside Scandinavia as well. Most recently, as Daland at the Spring Festival Tokyo, alongside Bryn Terfel, Ricarda Merbeth and Peter Seiffert, he was able to enthuse international audiences. In 2021, he will give his debut as Fasolt at the Bayreuth Festival.
