Keen to maintain a broad and diverse repertoire, Stephen Milling’s recent performance schedule features Philip II (Don Carlos) at San Francisco Opera and Opera National du Rhin, Rocco (Fidelio) at Gran Teatre del Liceu, Padre Guardiano (La forza del destino) at Palau de les Artes in Valencia, Kaija Saariaho’s Adriana Mater at Opéra National de Paris, Sparafucile (Rigoletto) at The Met, and Sarastro (Die Zauberflöte) at Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Wiener Staatsoper.

The 2016/17 season includes appearances as Daland for Royal Danish Opera (Jun Märkl), Gurnemanz for Deutsche Oper Berlin (Donald Runnicles), Pogner (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg) at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (Antonio Pappano) and Sarastro for Bayerische Staatsoper (Constantin Trinks). There will also be concert performances of Das Rheingold with the Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall (Christian Thielemann) and with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Alan Gilbert.

Trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, Stephen Milling joined the Royal Danish Opera in 1994 where he debuted a number of roles now central to his repertoire. International debuts at Teatro alla Scala as Don Fernando (Fidelio) and as both Fasolt and Hunding in The Seattle Opera’s Ring Cycle paved an early way to today’s thriving global career.

Stephen Milling made his debut with Berliner Philharmoniker in Verdi’s Messa da Requiem under Mariss Jansons, and features on several CDs including Les Troyens with London Symphony Orchestra (Sir Colin Davis). On DVD he stars in Der Ring des Nibelungen staged by La Fura dels Baus in Valencia and on three collaborations with Kasper Holten at the Royal Danish Opera: The Copenhagen Ring, Tannhäuser, and Maskarade.
