Conny Thimander, Swedish tenor, received his Master of Arts degree from the Opera Academy in Stockholm.
His operatic career started, while still at the Academy, with a jump in as the Italian singer in Capriccio, a role which he learnt on a very short notice, to sing at the premiere in the Royal Swedish Opera, after which he directly got offered Tamino (The Magic Flute) by the artistic direction.
