Alferink Artists Management (AAM) was founded by Pieter G. Alferink in 1971 in Amsterdam. In the early days, the management promoted Luciano Pavarotti, organized a master class around Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, and discovered the talent of Thomas Quasthoff.ABOUT ALFERINK
Theo van den Bogaard is owner and director of AAM since 2001. He added conductors, stage directors, designers and pianists to the roster. He picked up young singers and brought them to the top of the international opera world. Under his direction, the number of a very loyal staff grew with 50%. He is programmer of the Diaghilev Festival and series Grote Zangers. Theo van den Bogaard published a book on art song and is lecturer musical science at the Universiteit Utrecht. While expanding in all these directions, the very heart of AAM remained the same: a boutique management of fine singers.
