Henrik Vagn Christensen


Henrik Vagn Christensen is a versatile conductor with a repertoire spanning a wide range of arts and genres: symphonies, contemporary music, opera, operetta and musicals and ballet. He is considered the leading Danish ballet conductor of his generation and was associated with the Royal Danish Theatre in 1996–2012 and from 2013 with the New York City Ballet. Henrik Vagn Christensen also conducted at the Finnish National Ballet, the Royal Swedish Ballet, the Norwegian Opera, the State Theatre in Pretoria, The Kennedy Center in Washington, and the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. His close cooperation with the Danish Radio orchestras has brought him many engagements from concerts and ballet to film and TV recordings – most recently the music for the TV series 1864. The Danish regional orchestras have been the point of departure for his symphonic repertoire, and over the years Henrik Vagn Christensen has played innumerable concerts with all of these as well as making CD recordings and educational productions for children and the young.
