Back to Eirik

The Norwegian tenor Eirik Grøtvedt, born in 1993, studies at the State Academy of Music in Oslo.

In 20017 he sang Don Ottavio in DON GIOVANNI in the chamber venue at the Norwegian National Opera. Later the same year he sang Male Chorus in THE RAPE OF LUCRETIA at the Norwegian National Opera.
