Gratuitous Friday – Johan Reuter is Wotan (Das Rheingold)

Danish Bass-Baritone, Johan Reuter recently made his Met Debut as Jaroslav Prus in the Makropulos Case. I first noticed him in the same role on DVD from the 2011 Salzburg Festival. Reuter trained in Copenhagen at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and the Opera Academy. 

Reuter has been a member of the Royal Danish Opera since 1996, singing a wide repertoire from Mozart to Verdi to contemporary operas. He regularly sings on international stages , including Covent Garden, the Bastille Opera in Paris and Deutsche Oper in Berlin the Wagner Festival in Bayreuth, and the Salzburg Festival to name a few.

He can be seen on DVD in several roles, including Henrik in Nielsen’s opera Maskarade, and he is Wotan in the Copenhagen Ring. This clip is from Das Rheingold.
