During her studies, Frida performed the role of Susanna in the Marriage of Figaro, a role that she will perform again this summer (2019) at the Läckö Castle Opera venue. Previous roles performed include that of Sara Videbäck in the rewritten Swedish opera ‘Det går an’. Frida has also sung Papagena at the Malmö Opera, First Lady and First Boy at the Folk Opera and Pamina at the Göteborg Opera - all roles in the Magic Flute. In the Trilogy, a production by the Wermland Opera, Frida appeared as Rosina in the Barber of Seville, the Countess in the Marriage of Figaro and the First Prisoner of Fidelio.
