  • Lise Davidsen soprano
  • James Baillieu piano

Lise Davidsen was urged to develop her voice as an operatic soprano whilst studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, a recommendation fully justified in the wake of a string of prestigious award wins, including the Audience Prize at Operalia 2015. Davidsen’s 2016/17 season includes anticipated debuts at Glyndebourne and Opernhaus Zürich.

‘Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen, aged 28, is the real deal … she sealed her win with singing that was strong and technically flawless, and put her name at the top of the list of young singers of her generation.’ Financial Times

‘She shows … with a phenomenal, dramatic voice how she can sing such a difficult aria. She took the public immediately.’ Plácido Domingo
