Olafur Sigurdarson

Baritone

  • Olafur Sigurdarson wins the singers' palm on opening night, he has the power and expression and a noble baritone colour to allow his Don Carlo to emerge vividly
    Eckhard Britsch, Opernnetz
  • Sigurdarson was born to sing Falstaff, both his voice and his body language are ideal for the part. And while he is able to fill the venue with sound, he can also bring the timbre of his singing down, almost to speaking ...
    Gavin Dixon, Seen and Heard International
  • Sigurdarson sang Rafaello robustly and with bravura
    Planet Hugill
  • The evil one is by far the best; in a pinstriped suit, full of vengeance, the Icelandic baritone delivers a beautifully sung Don Carlo. A feast for the ears.
    Stephan Schickhaus, Frankfurter Rundschau
  • Olafur Sigurdarson is a gloriously comic and personable lead in Opera Holland Park's new production of Falstaff.
    The Telegraph
  • A vocal highlight was Olafur Sigurdarson who delivered a clear and powerful Don Carlo.
    Frederike Holewig, Entscheidende Unentschiedenheit
  • As Rigoletto, baritone Olafur Sigurdarson is truly a star singer. Both his full, penetrating voice and his acting skills have probably moved every member of the audience this evening.

  • Currently a principal artist at Saarländisches Staatstheater Saarbrücken, Icelandic baritone Olafur Sigurdarson begins Season 2014-15 as Iago in Theatre Basel’s new production of Otello.  He returns to Saarbrucken to make his debut in the title role Der Fliegende Höllander, alongside his standard repertoire, performances of which he continues to sing throughout the season—Scarpia Tosca and Don Carlo La Forza del Destino. Other engagements include his debut as Balstrode Peter Grimes at the Reykjavik Arts Festival, and an important debut as Wanderer Siegfried in concert with Dortmund Philharmonic.

    Last season’s highlights include his appearance in the title role Rigoletto in a return appearance at Staatsoper Hannover, his debut at Theatre Basel as Telramund Lohengrin, and in the title role Macbeth in Saarbrücken, and Barak Frau ohne Schatten. The artist appeared on home ground when he performed with Icelandic Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy in Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death, and made another role debut as Sancho Panza Don Quichotte in a new production at Danish National Opera.
