Holger Danske

Inga Nielsen, Inger Dam-Jensen, Henriette Bonde-Hansen, Marianne Rørholm, Gert Henning-Jensen, Johannes Mannov, Johan Reuter, Guido Paevatalu, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Danish National Concert Choir, Thomas Dausgaard

The premiere of the opera Holger Danske (Ogier the Dane) in 1789 in Copenhagen incited political controversy; only six performances took place. With this recording, it assumes its rightful place as the first masterpiece of Danish opera. It is a rescue opera, a fairy tale and a Turkish opera all at once.
