Swedish baritone Håkan Hagegård was catapulted to fame playing Papageno in Ingmar Bergman's film Die Zauberflöte. He has performed at all the major international opera houses and concert halls including the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Covent Garden, La Scala, and many others. A champion of contemporary music, he has performed world premieres of works by John Corigliano, Dominick Argento, and other internationally recognized composers.

Håkan Hagegård, although now retired from the concert platform, in one of the world's best-known singers. He is in great demand as a teacher and it is a privilege to welcome him to the Lieder Festival to work with some talented young singers.

The Swedish Weekend would not be possible without the very generous support of: Musik I Syd, the Embassy of Sweden, Gehrmans Musikförlag  and Nota Bene Productions.
