Louise Alenius (b. 1978)
Louise Alenius Boserup is a Danish autodidact classical composer born in 1978. In her spiritual choir works and large installations, she investigates the boundary between listener and music, as well as between the musical and scenographic experience. Louise Alenius has received the honorary prize of Carl Nielsen and Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen's Grant, besides several other music awards and Reumert nominations for her innovative works including the 1-1 performance series Porøset at the Royal Theater, the choir Rite of Nothing for the Cisterns, the opera Silent Zone and her miniature opera for the dying Prequiem.
In 2019 Alenius had a solo show with her installation Tête at the National Gallery of Denmark. Alenius is also the conductor of the choir Korage, which consists of several Danish soloists, and she is currently writing a major new opera for the Royal Theater, which will premiere in 2022. Furthermore, she just premiered the ballet Napoli at the Royal Copenhagen Theater's Old Scene.
