Tobias Ringborg is equally at home on the concert podium as a conductor, as a violinist, as well as in the opera house. He started his career as a violinist in 1994 by winning the prestigious Swedish Soloist Prize and graduated the same year with highest honors from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. In 2000 he embarked upon a conducting career – specializing in opera, particularly Italian as well as Mozartean repertoire. He has had engagements with most Scandinavian opera companies as well as with a.o. Opera North, Scottish Opera, Oper Leipzig and New Zealand Opera. Recent engagements include Le Nozze di Figaro at Scottish Opera, Giordano’s Fedora at Royal Swedish Opera and Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci at Opera North. He has recorded around 20 CDs. In 2010 Tobias Ringborg was awarded the Herbert Blomstedt Prize by the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, and in 2011 he was elected a member of that academy.
