Katrin Weisser

A German actress who has lived in Denmark since 2010, Katrin has had a broad spectrum of experience in film, television and theater, both internationally and in Denmark. 

Katrin’s range as an actor can be experienced in film and theatre, both internationally and here in Denmark. She was featured in DR’s Arvingerne (Heirs), Henrik Ruben Genz’s feature film, Tordenskjold og Kold (Tordenskjold and Kold), Parminder Singh’s satirical TV series Partiets Mand (Party Man), the drama series Gidseltagningen (The Hostage Taking) and many more.

One of her biggest achievements in Danish theatre was in the role of Clara Schumann in Clara - Indre Stemmer (Inner Voices), which for a number of years toured Denmark to sold-out venues. Of late, her performance in Brecht’s “Flygtningesamtaler” (Immigranten), with music written by Bent Fabricius-Bjerre, has, like Clara, garnered rave reviews.

In late summer 2018 and again in 2020 she embodied another great female figure from the classical world: the world-famous composer Alma Mahler. The performance sold out at the Republique Theatre. Alma was also invited to the Rued Langaard Festival last year.

In 2022, Katrin will be on the programme for the Frederiksberg Festspil 2022 for the second year running. This was founded by the renowned concert pianist Katrine Gislinge. This time there will be a collaboration with director Katrine Wiedemann. In addition, from August of this year, you can once again see her as Clara - recognised (Clara - genkendt) in connection with the Schubertiaden, and in 2024 as Haushofmeister in Katie Mitchell's "Ariadne on Naxos” at the Royal Opera.
