Stellis Polaris is proud to announce that our Shining Star artist and mezzo-soprano Hege Høisæter will sing Erda in GöteborgOpera’s ”Nibelungen Ring” in 2018-2021. Alongside Erda in ”Rheingold” and ”Siegfried”, Hege will sing one of the Valkyries and First Norn in ”The Valkyrie” and ”Götterdämmerung”. Director: Stephen Langridge. Conductor: Evan Rogister. This will be her Swedish debut, her GöteborgOpera debut and triple role debuts.
Hege will be the first female Norwegian singer that sings Wagner repertoire at Storan/ GöteborgsOperan since Kirsten Flagstad sang Elsa and Eva in the ’30s and Aase Nordmo Løvberg sang Elisabeth in the ´60s.
Stellis Polaris’ artist Adrian Angelico receives Tom Wilhelmsen Foundation’s Opera Prize for 2017. The prize sum is 300 000 NOK and is the biggest award dedicated exclusively to opera singers in Norway.
He will receive the prize at a performance he will attend at The Norwegian National Opera, 8 November.
