As music director of the Folkoperan Stockholm, Henrik Schaefer starts the new season by bringing the house fresh ideas – and not just through the original romantic sound he wants to achieve there.

Together with director Tobias Theorell, who came to the Folkoperan as artistic director just one year prior, he approaches the idea of romantic sound at the season opener with Verdi's Don Carlos. In conversation, the two give insights into their plans as an artistic team.
