Elisabeth Teige

“That we believe in this ending is first of all because of Elisabeth Teige in the role of Senta. She is a breathtaking, dramatic soprano. A real Wagnerian singer. In addition to this, she has a formidable stage  presence, and brings us – through out the evening – a Senta of real flesh and blood.”

As a touching Elsa or as Senta, the Norwegian soprano has taken the audience by storm with brilliant high notes, warm middle register, necessary depth and gripping interpretation. Since her debut as Leonore in ‘Fidelio’ at Den Norske Opera & Ballett, she has been a much sought-after guest for this role and was invited to the Nationaltheater Mannheim and the Semperoper Dresden in 2017/18. She made her debut as Cio-Cio-San in 2017 at the summer festival Opera på Skäret in Kopparberg in Sweden and was, in February 2018, the acclaimed Senta in the new production at Bergen National Opera. A special highlight of the 2018/19 season was her first Brünnhilde in Loriot’s ‘Der Ring an einem Abend’. Further debuts like Irene (‘Rienzi’) and Tosca followed in 2018/19 at the Deutsche Oper Berlin as well as at the Nationaltheater Mannheim. In the 2019/20 season, she made her debut as Turandot at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.  She was a celebrated Cio-Cio-San in her hometown of Oslo and was one of the first victims of the shutdown as Fidelio-Leonore in Prague, Hamburg and Dresden.

The new production of ‚Der Fliegende Holländer’ in Mannheim and Turandot at the Deutsche Oper Berlin in autumn also fell victim to Corona. The same happened with the Holländer-performances in spring 2021 at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
In February 2020 she made her debut as Siegfried Brünnhilde in concert with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra and showed that there is a highdramatic Soprano in Scandinavian tradition.
Her debut on the „Green Hill" in Bayreuth was postponed to 2022.There she will be singingn Gutrune & Freia in the new production of the Tetralogy at the Bayreuth Festival.
In autumn 2021 she will return to the Deutsche Oper Berlin as Sieglinde and Dritte Norn in ,Walküre’. In 2022 she will make her debut alongside Stephen Gould at the Deutsche Oper Berlin as Venus und Elisabeth im Tannhäuser.
On October 30th, 2020, she was the star guest at the memorial concert of 125th birthday of Kirsten Flagstad and received the Kirsten Flagstad Prize 2020 at the Oslo Opera House. On November 2nd, 2020, she received the Tom Wilhelmsen Foundation's opera and ballet prize, which was presented to her at her first masterclass in Oslo.
