Henning von Schulman is a Swedish bass with an impressive range and an amazing timbre. Since the cancellation of his debut as Fasolt in Das Rheingold by Wagner with the Chicago Lyric Opera due to the pandemic, the Swedish bass Henning von Schulman sang the title role in The Marriage of Figaro at Malmö Opera, debuted at Deutsche Oper Berlin in Lucia di Lammermoor, sung three roles at the Salzburger Festspiele in The Magic Flute and at the Copenhagen Opera in Tosca and Verdi’s A Masked Ball in both Copenhagen and at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo.
Schulman has been involved in opera productions in Cologne, Salzburg, Malmö, Oslo and Copenhagen and has performed in notable concerts such as Don Giovanni’s Masetto with the Swedish Radio alongside Peter Mattei and conductor Daniel Harding. He also performed Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Stockholm Philharmonic during their tour to Japan and the Danish Chamber Orchestra and Verdi’s Requiem with Göteborgs Symphony Orchestra.
Since graduating from the Academy of Opera in Copenhagen in 2013, Schulman has become a sought-after soloist in works such as Beethoven’s 9th, Händel’s Messiah and the requiems by Mozart, Verdi and Dvořák. Schulman was a member of the soloist ensemble at Copenhagen Opera until 2018 and today is a soloist on both opera and concert stages all over the world.
Schulman has won a number of international prizes and awards, among them first prize in the Otto Edelmann International Singing Competition in Vienna in 2013 and second prize in Wilhelm Stenhammar International Singing Competition in 2014.
