Clara Thomsen

Biography

Danish soprano Clara Thomsen is one of the most significant talents to have emerged from the Royal Danish Opera Academy in recent years, following her studies there with Susanna Eken. Her musical foundations were laid in the Copenhagen Girls’ Choir, after which she enrolled as an undergraduate at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.

Clara is a singer of rare experience given her relative youth. Following her Royal Danish Opera debut in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro (Barbarina) in 2017, she has appeared in the company’s production of Kuhlau’s Lulu (Second Witch) and taken the title role in the Opera Academy’s production of Handel’s Alcina at the Copenhagen Opera House. At the Festival of Lyric Arts at Aix en Provence, Clara participated in the Festival Academy’s Mozart Residency, a renowned course for the cultivation of Mozart interpretation.

In 2017 Clara made her debut as a soloist in a major orchestral concert series, taking the solo part in Carl Nielsen’s Sinfonia Espansiva with the Tonkünstler Orchestra at the world famous Musikverein in Vienna. She has appeared as a soloist in Bach’s St Matthew Passion, Mozart’s Requiem and in Handel's Messiah.

Clara has worked with some of the leading figures on the northern European music and opera scenes. She has appeared under conductors including Michael Schønwandt, Michael Boder, Giordano Bellincampi and Andreas Spering, and has worked with stage directors Elisa Kragerup, Enrico De Feo, Jacopo Spirei, Leah Hausman and Christian von Götz among others. She joined Nordic Artists Management in 2018.

Review
Alcina på Operaakademiet
Tue, 2018-03-20
PÅ Takkelloft-scenen har man nu en formidabel Alcina til at drive mændene til vanvid. Hun hedder Clara Cecilie Thomsen, vi har set hende i små roller på Det Kgl. – Barbarina i ’Figaros Bryllup’ og en mindre rolle i Kuhlaus ’Lulu’ – uden at dåne over dét, men her stormer hun frem med kølleslag af kvindelig selvsikkerhed og en kontant og sikker beherskelse af sin lyrisk-dramatiske sopran, godt skolet i koloraturerne.
