Charles E.J. MoultonActor, author and baritone Charles E.J. Moulton was born in Graz, Austria and raised trilingually in Sweden by his mother, opera singer Professor Gun Kronzell, and his father, the actor Herbert Moulton. He studied the craft of classical singing, musical comedy and drama at the Vienna Music Academy and at St. Sigfrid’s Music University in Sweden. Beginning his theatrical career at age 11, playing the part of a troll, he soon decided to make this a profession. Through appearances in countless concerts and oratories, acting in three languages and doing voice over and film work, he gathered continental-wide experience as an artist. After touring with Broadway Musical Night, he starred 700 times in the Viennese original production of Roman Polanski’s Dance of the Vampires, playing Koukol, Count von Krolock’s servant, as well as ensemble roles. Charles has performed in 81 productions, among others as 1st cast Big Bopper in Buddy – the Musical and as Scar and Pumbaa in Disney’s The Lion King, both in Hamburg, Germany. He was on board the cruise liner Arkona performing seven shows by the coastal towns of three continents and has sung Figaro and Escamillo with the Hamburg Mozart Orchestra at the Hamburg Proms. He is now working at the Opera House of Gelsenkirchen. His roles here include Masetto in Don Giovanni, Bartolomeo in Il Furioso and Zuniga in Carmen. He is also the author of a fantasy trilogy named The Haunted Kingdom, which can be borrowed at the Gelsenkirchen library and was copyrighted in 2005. His latest book is a collection of short stories labelled When Your Spirits Climb, copyrighted in 2010.
