Mari Eriksmoen, soprano

Audun Iversen, baritone

Sveinung Bjelland, piano

Both singers are of remarkable talent and are attracting much attention due to the quality of their voice. They are both from Norway.

The coloratura soprano Mari Eriksmoen is one of the most outstanding and alluring singers in the opera world at the moment.. Mari sings regularly at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen, the Opera de Lille and the Grand Théâtre de la Ville de Luxembourg and recently with the Theater and der Wien replacing Diana Damrau.

“Mari Eriksmoen is very charming, with a beautiful voice quality and a wonderful clear coloratura, and she sings with heart and mind” Dame Joan Sutherland “Opemwalt” 2007. Audun Iversen, baritone, sings title roles at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opéra de Lille, and has performed as a soloist with the Moscow State Philharmonic Society and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra amongst others.

His debut at London’s Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, is scheduled for this spring.

“Audun Iversen has an elegant, vibrant voice that combines lyricism with an underlying darker hue, all held together with sure-footed technique and a timbre that is distinctly engaging and personal” Opera News 2009
