Talk with Baritone Bo Skovhus

The Danish baritone Bo Skovhus is an Austrian and Bavarian Kammersänger and was most recently seen at the Semperoper as Don Giovanni, Sixtus Beckmesser, Count Danilo Danilowitsch and Mandryka. For our new production of Dmitri Shostakovich’s »The Nose« he sings the main character Platon Kusmitsch Kowaljow. In our second making-of, Skovhus talks about the music, the fate of his role, Peter Konwitschny’s staging and Gogol’s text.
