Elisabeth Teige

Der Fliegende Holländer, Oper Frankfurt

"Als Senta gab die Norwegerin Elisabeth Teige ihr Hausdebüt. Das war eine beglückende Begegnung mit einer Sängerin, die man gerne wieder in Frankfurt erleben möchte. Zu hören war eine idealtypische dramatische Stimme, die jugendliche Frische mit Durchschlagskraft vereint." Der Opernfreund

Madama Butterfly, Opera  Skäret

"The shining star of this production is definitely Norwegian soprano Elisabeth Teige in the title role. She was a marvellous Senta in last year’s Der fliegende Holländer and her Butterfly was even more sensational. The fifteen-year-old geisha is of course something far removed from Wagner’s heroine, but Butterfly also needs a grand voice and Ms Teige delivered with beautiful steady tone, powerfully and with expressivity. She was truly glorious in the long duet that ends Act I; 'Un bel di vedremo' in Act II was heartrending and together with Siv Oda Hagerupsen we were treated to a magical cherry blossom duet, magical and playful. She crowned her performance with a touching final act. A great achievement indeed!" Seen and Heard International

Fidelio, The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet

"It is guest soloist Elisabeth Teige who is the star of this show. With depth in her soprano timbre she separates herself from the prevailing soprano heroine as her role, Leonore, also does. It requires an adult and resonant voice to gestalt Leonore without letting the role tip over into the farcical. But Teige does so with assurance. With great strength in depth and a characteristic airy midrange she is magnetic as Fidelio. When she is eventually revealed as Leonore and Beethoven sends her into the lighter soprano tenant, she is no less impressive." Aftenposten

"In this Elisabeth Teige stands as a beacon. You hear her clear soprano in spite of that the other soloists contribute simultaneously and choir singing in earnest. Just that in itself is a strong achievement. The performance is primarily hers. She dominates from the first moment. In the duet between Leonore and Florestan - (Henrik Engelsviken) - at the end, it raises itself towards almost heavenly heights." Kulturspeilet

Lohengrin, Theater St. Gallen

“Magnificent was the young Norwegian soprano Elisabeth Teige; Boldness and enthusiasm where equally effective in her body language, and with this her powerful voice was anchored in a solid core.” Opernwelt

“The wonderfully confident soprano voice of Elisabeth Teige (the career of this young Norwegian soprano must be kept in mind and ear) resonates radiantly and brightly in her arias Einsam in trüben Tagen and Euch Lüften, the duet with Ortrud: Es gibt ein Glück das one Reu, and the bridal scene with Lohengrin with touching intensity, an intensity she also displays in her acting.” Oper Aktuell

“The Norwegian soprano Elisabeth Teige´s Elsa is of strong character, and still manages to pull off the more dreaming passages excellently.” Neue Zürcher Zeitung

“Elisabeth Teige sings Elsa beautifully with a focused timbre specially in the high register.” Saiten

“Elisabeth Teige as the dreamy, loving, anxious and ultimately deeply disappointed Elsa, who can express everything from mild affection to violent anger with her warm voice.” St.Galler Tagblatt

Der Fliegende Holländer, Opera på Skäret

"The young Norwegian soprano Elisabeth Teige is a real stroke of luck. Already the introductory pianissimo tones in the spinning scene tells us about a beautiful timbre and a straight-controlled soprano. The vocally difficult ballad and the big confrontation in the second act she mastered superbly and with glossfull height." Tidskriften Opera

"She has all the gleaming top notes but also the softness that is also part of Senta’s character. Hers is a sensational reading of the role." Seen and Heard International 

"The Norwegian soprano Elisabeth Teige is fantastic as Senta , she manages to portray both the girlish naivete, the blind certainness and the hopeless confirmation thirst in the demanding role - and she sings absolutely incredible." Dagens Nyheter
