Elisabeth Teige

Festlicher Openabend Fidelio, Nationaltheater Mannheim

„Als Glücksgriff erwies sich Elisabeth Teige, die mit engagierter Präsenz und vokaler Verve bis in die Spitzentöne brillierte.“ Mannheimer Morgen

Der Fliegende Holländer, Bergen National Opera

“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.” Bergens Tidende

Fidelio, Nationaltheater Mannheim

„[Elisabeth] Teige hat die emphatische Dramatik, die schöne Blüte und packende Beseeltheit in ihrem Sopran." Mannheimer Morgen

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

„Strahlend und licht dagegen schwingt sich die wunderbar sicher geführte Sopranstimme von Elisabeth Teige auf (die Karriere dieser jungen norwegischen Sopranistin muss man unbedingt im Auge und im Ohr behalten), erfüllt ihre ‚Arien‘ […] und die Brautgemachszene mit Lohengrin mit berührender Intensität, einer Intensität, welche sie auch in der Darstellung erreicht.“ Oper Aktuell

„Elisabeth Teige singt Elsa mit schönem, in der Höhe fokussiertem Timbre.“ Saiten

„Großartig die junge Norwegerin Elisabeth Teige; Zielstrebigkeit und Enthusiasmus kommen in ihrer Körpersprache gleichermaßen zur Geltung, und dabei bleibt ihre strahlkräftige Stimme in einem festen Kern verankert.“ Opernwelt

"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 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
