Stellis Polaris is proud to announce that the Norwegian renowned soprano Berit Norbakken Solset recently has joined the Stellis’ team. Berit has her base in Tromsø but works internationally in opera- and concert productions with early and contemporary music as her speciality.
Richard Klingspor, CEO: ”Berit is an artist with a unique voice and honest expression. She sings in the top range of the international scene in her field with loads of intelligence and integrity. Berit is a perfect match with Stellis Polaris’ visions.”
Haydn’s ”The Creation” with Nidaros Oratoriekor, conductor: Grete Pedersen, and in Lausanne with L’Ensemble Vocal Lausanne, Orchestre De Chambre de Lausanne, conductor Daniel Reuss, awaits in September.
Mezzo soprano Hege Høisæter sings The Countess in Tchaikovsky’s ”Pique dame” at Norwegian National Opera. Dagsavisen writes:
”A clear answer to why we should see and hear this [The Queen of Spades], comes after the first intermission when Hege Høisæter gets a musical space as the Countess. She both plays and sings the old witch brilliantly, supported by a costume where the rigidity gives dramatic meaning. She takes the command musically, gets the conductor and the orchestra down in pace into a musical weight and nerve. ”
Aftenposten: ”Hege Høisæter is magnetic as the nostalgic and bitter, ageing Countess. ”
Remaining performances of ”The Queen of Spades” at The Norwegian National Opera is 15, 18, 21, 23, 25 September. Don’t miss it!
