1981 - 1986
It started with operetta in Oslo (Norway) in 1981. Then opera in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982. Then came 1983 and 1984, in all 6 performances all in Norway. 1985 was my first opera duets travel to Austria. Then suddenly stop in 1986 because my health problems.
1987 - 1992
In 1987 Norway and Austria. 3 operas in Oslo in 1988. In 1989 first time in the UK, Edinburgh Festival with Montserrat Caballé and Zarzuela. 1989 was a GREAT year for me. AND then came 1990 with José (Josep) Carreras, Montserrat Caballé and Katia Ricciarelli all in Norway, not together but still... Then just one opera in 1991, but it was CARMEN. Luck continues in 1992 with another Carmen but also a lucky meet in Innsbruck, Carreras sings in Austria, a wonderful chance for me.
And this short summary of My history of Opera Part 1 and Part 2.
