In the coming month, Steingrimur Rohloff is represented on various stages in Europe with opera, choir, ensemble and solo works.
His recent opera 'Angry Man' (Min far og Vrede mand) will be performed at the New Opera in Esbjerg, Denmark. This chamber opera for children deals with domestic abuse and is based on a new but already classic, Norwegian children's book 'Angry Man' (Sinna mann). The opera received great reviews when it was premiered in 2016, and now it can be experienced 4-6 February.

The piece 'Nothing Else - Nothing More' is based on texts by the Danish grand old man of poetry Peter Laugesen with whom Steingrimur shares a friendship after numerous collaborations. 'Nothing else - nothing more' will be performed by the Helsinki Chamber Choir in the house of nobility in Helsinki. The Helsinki Chamber Choir is one of the best interpreters of its kind for modern music and has premiered over 70 new works worldwide.
