The bass Stephen Milling is considered one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the Wagner repertoire and enjoys regular collaborations with some of today’s leading conductors including Zubin Mehta, Christian Thielemann, Sir Simon Rattle, Franz Welser-Möst, Antonio Pappano and Daniel Barenboim. He trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and joined the Royal Danish Opera in 1994 where he debuted in a number of roles now central to his repertoire before establishing a thriving international career. Recent performing Wagner highlights include landgraf Hermann (Tannhäuser) at Bayreuth Festival 2019 under Valery Gergiev and in concert with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Vladimir Jurowski, and Daland (Der fliegende Holländer) at Bayerische Staatsoper and König Marke (Tristan und Isolde) at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden under the baton of Daniel Barenboim. He has performed the role of Gurnemanz (Parsifal) at both Wiener Staatsoper under Sir Simon Rattle and at Osterfestspiele Salzburg under Christian Thielemann.
