Young Danish soprano Simone Victor was discovered at only twelve years old by the Royal Danish Opera singer Bonna Søndberg, with whom she began taking private lessons. Ms. Victor has continued to study privately ever since, mainly with international voice teachers. She has been working with bel canto specialist Ken Querns Langley for the last four years.
 
In 2016, she studied with Maestro Richard Bonynge and the legendary soprano Aprile Millo at the Operavision Academy summer program in Busseto, Italy. The following year she sang the role of Manjain Gräfin Maritza with the company, “Polyhymnia” at Hofteatret in Copenhagen. She then spent the month of July in master class with soprano Mirella Freni at the Teatro Comunale Luciano Pavarotti di Modena, and in August 2017 she was a featured Young Artist of the London Bel Canto Festival, where she performed her London debut recital. While at the festival, she worked closely with tenor Bruce Ford, soprano Nelly Miricioiu, Maestro David Parry, and Roberto Bertuzzi from La Fenice.
