Bertil Bokstedt, accompany, Stockholm Opera House


Bertil Bokstedt was born in the south of Sweden, Skane, in 1919 and joined the Stockholm Opera House (Kungliga Operan, in those days called Kungliga Teatern) in 1942 where his first task was to coach the singers. Later he began to conduct. Between 1969 and 1980 he was intendent (general and artistic manager) of the 18th century theater of Drottningholm about 7 miles west of Stockholm, a job that partly coincided with his assignment as general manager of the Stockholm Opera House 1971-77.
