Marie Arnet will make her house debut with Danish National Opera, singing the role of Sarah in a new commission by Daniel Bjarnason, The Brothers. A production by Danish Director Kasper Holten, the cast will include Jacques Imbrailo (Michael), Selma Buch Ørum Villumsen (Nadia), Joel Annmo (Jamie) and James Laing (Peter).
As Daniel Bjarnason’s first opera, and based on Susanne Bier’s film of the same name, The Brothers is part of the Concert Hall Aarhus’s ‘Bier series’, in which the acclaimed Danish film trilogy will be transformed into stage productions in connection with the European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
The Brothers opens on Wednesday 16 August, with further performances on 18, 20 and 22 August. Following her performances in Denmark, Marie will reprise the role later in the 2017-18 season for Icelandic Opera.
