Actor and singer Kaden Forsberg believes PERSONALITY is the source of art. Most at home on stage and in the rehearsal hall, Kaden’s work focuses on AUTHENTICITY and tends toward a FUTURE-ORIENTED optimism. His love of process and collaboration has led to a career that crosses genres and often positions him as both creator and performer. You are just as likely to see him on stage realizing works of MUSIC THEATRE and OPERA as performing original pieces with his ‘popera’ trio the VOLARE TENORS. Kaden’s guiding principle as an artist is stated best by Oscar Wilde: It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it
Regularly performing on national and international stages, Kaden was recently part of Centaur Theatre’s queer reading series (Jesse in A Song of Fiction) and is a finalist in this year's Lotte Lenya competition. Furthermore, he will be seen as the March Hare and Card #2 in the upcoming FILM of Raum's The Garden of Alice.
Notably, Kaden has performed title roles in Joseph…Dreamcoat (Festival Players) and Candide (NUOVA) while appearing nationally in leading and supporting roles with Pacific Opera Victoria, City Opera Vancouver, and Highlands Opera. Kaden developed and performed the role of Devon in the 2017 Marie Clements/Brian Current opera Missing directed by Peter Hinton. His international engagements include a fellowship at the Aspen Music Festival, Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi (Amalfi Coast Music Festival), and Medoro in Orlando Paldino (Mozarteum).
Kaden’s next engagements include a jazz-oratorio produced by Musée Marguerite-Bourgeoys, the 40 Days of Opera concert series with Pacific Opera Victoria, and an upcoming album and tour with “popera” trio VOLARE TENORS.
