An evening of thrilling scenes from grand opera, brought to you by stars of the Norwegian Opera House:

Bergen-born Hege Høisæter was a soloist with the Norwegian Opera where her many major roles included Carmen, Ottavia in Poppea (Monteverdi), and Kabanicha in Katya Kabanova (Janacek). She has led casts in many world premieres by Norwegian composers, including Rolf Wallin and Gisle Kverndokk. Hege regularly performs on radio and television in Norway, and she is returning to the Norwegian Opera for a much anticipated premier this year.
