Bo Skovhus (baritone) has opera houses and concert halls in Europe, the USA and Japan as his workplaces, but has especially close connections with the Austrian and German opera houses. Skovhus was born in Ikast, Denmark, and trained first in Århus, later in Copenhagen and New York. His career took off in 1988 at the Volksoper in Vienna, and to this day the city is still at the centre of most of his artistic engagements. Skovhus’ repertoire ranges wide, from operettas by Lehár and Johann Strauss the Younger through baritone roles in operas by Mozart, Richard Strauss and Wagner to lieder concerts with leading pianists such as Helmut Deutsch, Christoph Eschenbach and Daniel Barenboim. Bo Skovhus has recorded many of his most important roles on CD. In 2011 he was awarded the DR P2 Artist’s Prize.
