SILICON VALLEY-CA -- Since her debut at the METROPOLITAN OPERA on the night of November 29, 2019, singing  the star role of TCHAIKOVSKY's  opera "The Queen of  Spades, " soprano  LISE DAVIDSON, who admits she did not see an opera performance until she was in her 20s, became  not only a fixture at the MET, but has gained the reputation as the "Great Wagnerian promise." for a timbre of voice that had been described by PETER GELB,  the METROPOLITAN OPERA's General Manager, as "In a league of her own," and by the former long-standing principal conductor of the Los Angeles   Philharmonia Orchestra, ESA-PEKKA SALONEN, who has been the principal conductor of the London-Based Philharmonia Orchestra for 11 years, "One-in-a million' voice"

The Norwegian soprano, has been endowed with a lyrical dramatic voice with extraordinary radiance in her tone, vocal excellence and strong expressiveness, which allows it to be heard clearly even in the fortissimo parts of the orchestra the compositions of RICHARD WAGNER with ease. But DAVIDSON is also able to master the delicate sounds of the operas' lyrical parts, so it is no wonder that BAYREUTH the little town on the Rhein Main River in Bavaria where RICHARD WAGNER established his BAYREUTH FESTSPELHAUS, theatre to represent his operas, has already become aware of the multiple-award winning soprano LISE DAVIDSON.

As part of the MET STARS LIVE IN CONCERT SERIES, which started in July,Soprano LISE DAVIDSEN, hailed as "One of the greatest voices of her generation," by The Guardian, will perform her live concert on August 29th from Oslo's magnificent Oscarshall Palace. Her thrilling program will include operatic selections by RICHARD WAGNER, by RICHARD STRAUSS and by GIUSEPPE VERDI, as well as Scandinavian songs by JEAN SIBELIUS and EDVARD GRIEG. The soprano will be accompanied by pianist JAMES BAILLIEUS.
