Recently Patrick was performing in a production of The Phantom of The Opera at Det Ny Teater in Copenhagen, where he sang the roles of Don Attilio and Passarino. He has also performed with Copenhagen Opera Festival in 2019 and 2020 in different productions, some of which replaced productions cancelled due to COVID-19. He will appear with the festival in 2021. He is also a creative performer who produces opera production with new librettos and music with his opera company Operakollektivet, premiering the opera Team Player by Gísli Grétarsson and Oda Fiskum in 2016. They now look forward to premiere the opera Systemet in 2020/2021 in Oslo.
In Copenhagen Patrick has taken measures to make sure he keeps active, and has started an Opera Salon at the culture venue Absalon, a former churched turned into a community house for art, music, dancing and other activities. Here he performs opera concerts on a monthly basis within the Corona-restrictions. He will also perform as Rigoletto in the opera by G. Verdi at Absalon in September, in a reduced concert version of the opera, together with a young and promising cast. He looks forward to develop this initiative further alongside singing as a freelance singer.
