About Folke Jonsson:

Folke Henry Jonsson (9 June 1904 in Ängelholm Sweden – 7 December 1981 in Sollentuna) was a Swedish opera singer who sang leading bass roles primarily at the Royal Swedish Opera and in other Scandinavian opera houses for many years. He also appeared as one of the priests in Ingmar Bergman's film The Magic Flute (Trollflöjten) and as the Herald in Roberto Rossellini's film Giovanna d'Arco al rogo.

In 1945 he sang Old Florio in the premiere of Rosenberg's opera Lycksalighetens ö in Stockholm.
