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 – throughout the evening – a Senta of real flesh and blood.” 

As a touching Elsa or as Senta, the young 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 will make her debut as Turandot at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. She will also appear as Cio-Cio-San in Oslo and as Fidelio-Leonore in Prague, Hamburg and Dresden. In March 2020, she will make her Siegfried Brünnhilden debut with the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, followed by her debut in the new production of the Tetralogy at the Bayreuth Festival 2020 as Gutrune. She will, then, make her debut as Sieglinde in the new production of ‘Die Walküre’ at the Oslo Opera House. She can also be seen as Sieglinde at the Deutsche Oper Berlin.
