 Role: Friend - ”Amelia goes to the ball”, Gian Carlo Menotti, Moderna Operan, Sommaropera, Eskilstuna, Sweden, August 2023.

Ekuriren Review: Amelia goes to the ball, Moderna Operan, Sommaropera Eskilstuna.

"Without revealing too much, this year's edition of the summer opera does not begin until the second act. In the first act, everyone on stage gets a chance to entertain the audience in their own way. Soloists and dancers perform little gold nuggets of what they know and are best at.

It's fun, entertaining, ingenious and above all, it feels like something new. The audience laughs, is impressed and surprised. Ensemble that is coordinated, professional and where everyone offers themselves."

“The countertenor Viktor Priebe in particular deserves an extra mention. His whole revelation makes the neck hair rise with well-being.”

Västerbottens-Kuriren Review: Bly, Piteå Kammaropera.

“Countertenor Viktor Priebe occasionally breaks into his role as the Essence of Love, to add a philosophical bottom and ask the impossible questions.

With him, Bly also reaches its highest heights. He is nuanced and sufficient in his presence to seriously manage to breathe life into the demanding role.”
