REVIEWS

La clemenza di Tito at the Royal Danish Opera (2023)

“Magnus Berg in the role of Publius was also outstanding. His inner conflict was evident in the battle between his own feelings and society’s rules and norms.”

– Ungt Teaterblod

Così fan tutte at the Royal Danish Opera (2023)

‘’Guglielmo was replaced by the Norwegian baritone Magnus Berg, just finished from the Opera Academy. An impressive jump in by a very promising acting singer, which we look forward to see and hear more from.”
