2014 started with a bang! It was a gigant task to be asked to do the voice over for Prince Hans in the Danish version of Disney's FROZEN. And there's no hiding that the movie was and still is a hit with enormous success. Furthermore there were time for a re-production of Grease at Tivoli and following that was another Disney-task. But before then time was spend on a few concerts at Knudsen's in Holstebro before heading for a trip to New York to work with different teachers in preparation - and yes, there were also time to "suck it all in" in the big inspiring apple. Then started the next adventure playing the role of Prince Eric in the Danish version of Disney's The Little Mermaid playing at the Copenhagen Opera House and Fredericia Teater. Once again a big hit - in spite of challenges with a sting of a bee and several fire alarms on opening night, but completed... as we all know the show must go on. Yet again did Alan Menken visit to see The Little Mermaid and in addition to that he also so a workshop of his old show Atina - The Queen Of The Galaxy, where Christian was starring as one of the leads. Once again meeting Mr. Menken was a great experience. Before the turn of the year Tim Schou asked Christian to participate in a charity event that was live streamed to 20 countries around the world via StageIt. And last but not least the last production of the year took place. It was the theatre concert "Dejlig Er Haven" at Holbæk Teater with the words of the famous Danish writer Johannes Møllehave.

2013 was a busy year with lots of great challenges, in Denmark and abroad. The first opening night of the year was at Fredericia Teater and the show The Drowsy Chaperone, starring in the role of Robert Martin. The next task was performing as a soloist at The Night of 1000 Stars in the grand old Royal Albert Hall in London. JGPC were the producers of this charity concert, which also was a tribute to Harold "Hal" Prince in aid of The Carol Keating Foundation. See the pictures here. Among the other performers were the original Broadway Sweeney Todd, the legendary Len Cariou. Another legend visited Denmark, the composer behind a wealth of Disney hits, Alan Menken, who by the way is the most Oscar™ winning, still-living person. Disney and Fredericia Teater held a tribute concert to Alan Menken, and as the final Christan performed Santa Fe from the Broadway hit musical, Newsies. Singing, accompanied by Alan Menken himself, was a fantastic experience.

After nearly 4 years work, with 4 workshops, the adventure about Esaura culminated and came to an end (for the time being). The final workshop of the show took place in early June and the show was thereafter transferred to a full production at Fredericia Teater. A cast album with excerpts has also been released and can be ordered here. There were also yet another 2 concert at St James' Theatre in London with John Bucchino. As well as a charity concert in aid of the Danish Cancer Trust at Nordfyn. The year was rounded off with another British adventure. The task was to perform in a proper British panto. The role was Prince Antonio in Sleeping Beauty at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, produced by First Family Entertainment.

2012 started by with the role as Roger in Grease. The show ran in The Tivoli Garden's Concert Hall and in Aarhus Music Hall with an unbelievable amount of happy audiences at both venues. After this followed a big Spring Concert with the theme of Music from the Movies accompanied by Fredercia Town Orchestra. Then another round of reading/workshops on the new musical, Esaura, with book by Mads Æbeløe Nielsen and music by the Americian composer John Bucchino. The latter also gave a concert in Copenhagen in the early summer with a group of Scandinavian guest singers on stage, including Christian.

In 2010 and 2011 one particular show especially took up a lot of time. The show was the original Danish production of Mamma Mia, where the role to be played was the young groom, Sky (Danish: Sky). Rehearsals began August 2010 and after the opening night on October 15 Mamma Mia ran for 150 performances in The Tivoli Garden's Concert Hall. More than 150.000 people saw the show in Copenhagen. After a brief interruption with another reading/workshop of the the new musical Esaura, Mamma Mia then ran at Aarhus Music Hall where another 40.000 audiences came to see the show.

Before the above mentioned, the first half of 2010 was also full of exciting projects, hard work and exciting experiences. The first show of the year was High School Musical 2 at Fredericia Theatre, a show which later went on a Dansh tour. Christian could be seen in the role of Zeke and as the understudy for the role of Troy in an energy packed show. He filled the role of Troy in almost on fifth of the shows. The next show was that of My Fair Lady at the Old Stage at The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen where he performed in the ensemble and as an understudy for the role of Jamie. During the Danish awards ceremony for stage arts, the Reumert Awards, Christian was on stage on three occasions as he took part in excerpts from My Fair Lady and High School Musical 2. The latter won the award for Best Musical of the Year. The summer meant yet another big and exciting challenge in a workshop/reading of the new Danish/American musical Esaura. In the later summer Christian also found time to take part in concert at Hindsgavl Castle on Fyn. Under the title "Swinging Castle Concert", and in beautiful interplay with JR's Big Band and Christina Elisabeth Mørkøre, a wonderful afternoon was had in the castle garden.

In the Autumn of 2009 Christian performed in Les Misérables at Det Ny Teater (The New Theatre), Copenhagen in the role of Courfeyrac, and as an understudy for the role of Marius, which he played several times.

Christian's professional debut on the Danish musical theatre scene was in the lead part of Black in Gladsaxe Ny Teater's production of the Andrew Lippa musical, The Wild Party.

Even as a student Christian was offered several engagements which he couldn't turn down. One of these were an offer of singing the lead part of the Russian chess champion, Anatoly Sergievsky, in a concert production of the musical Chess, with Sønderjylland's Symphoni Orchestra, February 2008. As a result of his performance Christian was offered to come to London 3 months later, in May 2008, to take part in Chess in Concert at the one and only Royal Albert Hall, albeit in the smaller role of Viigand, but also as understudy for Josh Groban, who played the part of Anatoly Sergievsky. Here he performed with musical theatre stars such as Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal, David Bedella, Clarke Peters, Kerry Ellis, and of course Josh Groban.

Christian completed his training at The Danish Musical Academy in Fredericia in June, 2008. The 3-year education meant two stage internships at Frederica Theatre in 2007 in Fiddler on the Roof, and at Folketeatret in 2007/8 in Jesus Christ Superstar. The training culminated in a graduation showcase at Fredericia Theatre, which consisted of excerpts from two different shows. One was the musical Thoroughly Modern Mille, which is a fairly unknown musical in Denmark. The other was the somewhat more famous musical, HAIR, in which Christian played the role of Berger.

In the spring of 2007 Christian became frontman of the band, Tennis, and he has since then rocked up many parties all over Denmark, along with the rest of the Tennis gang. Tennis is a function band with a nose for igniting the dancing shoes and the voices of the audience members – the gimmick being that all band members wear tennis outfits. Haze (Harboøre Music Festival), Skanderborg Festival, Zentropa – Berling Film Festival and Boblen – Århus Fetival Week are just a few of the manu references.

Christian has participated as a soloist and backing singer at several concerts in Denmark throughout the latest years.

I 2004 Christian entered the singing competition Unge Sangere (Young Singers) in Denmark and won both the Audience's Prize and the First Prize.

Christian was born and raised in Holstebro, Denmark, and it was here the first musical steps were taken. His first audition for the local Hosltebro Music Theatre resulted in the lead roll as Claude in the musical HAIR after which he also performed in several other shows for the same company, such as Chess, Rent and Cabaret – the latter in which Christian was given another main part, this time as the young author Clifford Bradshaw. He was also given a main part as Topper in Herning Kongrescenter's production of the Danish musical Askepop.
