Young Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen has everyone in the world of classical music talking about her stunning, once-in-a-generation instrument and her charismatic communicative power. Davidsen makes a series of anticipated debuts in 2020/21 season including: Sieglinde in Stefan Herheim’s new production of Die Walküre in her company debut with Deutsche Oper Berlin; a company debut with Staatsoper unter den Linden as Elisabeth Tannhäuser; and a role debut as Amelia in a new production of Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera at the Norwegian National Opera. On the concert platform Davidsen makes two further role debuts: with Orchestre de Paris as Chrysothemis in their concert performance of Elektra under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen and the title role of Jenufa at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
