2018–19 Season: Matteo in Arabella
Performing for the first time at San Francisco Opera as Matteo in Arabella, Swedish tenor Daniel Johansson began the 2017–18 season with Don José in Carmen at the Bregenz Festival, followed by Mario Cavaradossi in Tosca at the Norwegian Opera in Oslo and his first Siegmund (Die Walküre) at Theater an der Wien. In the spring, Johansson sings Count Loris Ipano in Giordani’s Fedora as well as Cavaradossi, both at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. He also returns to the role of Don José, this time at the Semperoper in Dresden. Last season, Johansson performed his first Lohengrin at the Musiktheater in Essen. He has visited the Semperoper as Narraboth in Salome and as Froh in Das Rheingold, and he also appeared as Don José at Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Finland National Opera in Helsinki, and the Norwegian Opera.
In 2007, Johansson won first prize in the Gösta Winbergh Award, and he holds the 2009 Birgit Nilsson Scholarship. During the spring of 2012, he was awarded first prize in the Wilhelm Stenhammar Competition.
