Carl Unander-Scharin is an opera singer and composer, performing with The Throat III - one of many custom-built artist operated instruments presented in the “Extending Opera” context.
Carl has sung roles at many Swedish venues such as the Folkoperan, and the Vadstena-Academy. From 2000 to 2011, he was employed as a tenor soloist at the Royal Opera in Stockholm, where he appeared in 25 roles – such as Tamino (Mozart’s “Die Zauberflöte”), Almaviva (Rossini’s “Il Barbiere da Siviglia”), Raoul de Gardefeu (Offenbachs “La Vie Parisienne”), Gonzalve (Ravels “L’heure Espagnole”) and many more – all in all 355 performances.
In 2009, Carl appeared as Nadir in Bizet’s “Les Pêcheurs de Perles” at Folkoperan. Carl is continuously performing in concerts and oratorios, especially in Bach’s tenor parts, for example the passions and the oratorios. A rarely performed piece “Faust et Helène” by Nadia Boulanger, was staged by Malmö Opera during winter 2014 - with Carl performing as Faust.
Carl has participated in 18 CD recordings both as a composer and as a tenor; most recently in recordings of music by Bach (b-minor mass 2015 under the baton of Ingmar Månsson) and the newly composed St John Passion by Sixten (conducted by Ragnar Bohlin).
Carl is passionate about the use of electronics and digital technologies in opera and will be showcasing the brand new “Aerial Robotic Choir” at MTF Stockholm.
