The Swedish baritone Peter Mattei has established himself as one of the most sought after singers of his generation. On August 4 and 8 Peter Mattei gives two Mozart concerts at the Drottningholm Court Theatre, with soprano Vivianne Holmberg and the Drottningholm Theatre Orchestra, directed by Mark Tatlow. The concert includes arias from Mozart's Don Giovanni, Le Nozze di Figaro and The Magic Flute

Peter Mattei won international acclaim for his interpretation of the title role of Don Giovanni in Aix-en-Provence, directed by Peter Brook in 1998.
