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.
