The icon KLAUS NOMI opens his heart for the young audience at the Royal Swedish Opera


You hear him, you see him, you feel him. The German countertenor, synthpop artist and fashion icon Klaus Nomi was always far from average. However, this trail-blazing avant-gardist longed for companionship and love. The dying Nomi reveals his innermost feelings to
the audience in a raw, moving monologue. He speaks for every lonely artist and nonconformist.

In the musical monologue Klaus Nomi, which premiered at the Royal Swedish Opera in 2020, we get to follow Klaus during his last hours on earth. The production is an intimate portrait written by playwright Lucas Svensson and directed by Sunil Munshi. Arias written by Purcell, Saint-Saëns, and Nomi himself, among others, are performed by a string quartet, piano and synthesizers. According to Aftonbladet, «Richard Hamrin plays Nomi with great skill, both in terms of acting and by means of his voice – he is essentially a baritone – that can reach the high falsetto notes, play with the arias and communicate convincingly with the audience». SvD wrote: «Just thinking of Richard Hamrin’s exit in this performance is electrifying, it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen … an impressive breakthrough for Richard Hamrin.»

Suitable for age 16+.
