Notes and Editorial Reviews
Elisabet Strid began her international career in 2010 at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo as Elisabeth in Tannhauser. Since then her career has skyrocketed, and she is a frequently invited guest at all the world's great opera houses. In 2017 the artist made her debut in France as Senta in The Flying Dutchman at the Opera de Lille, and as Salome at the Leipzig Opera. She also sang the role of Senta at the Cape Town Opera, and of Sieglinde in The Valkyrie at the Chicago Lyric Opera. Future engagements will include interpretations of the roles of Brunnhilde, Salome and Elisabeth at the Leipzig Opera, Senta at the Wagner Days in Budapest and Sieglinde at the Rhine Opera in Dusseldorf-Duisburg. Her debut as Marietta in Die tote Stadt is planned for the Helsinki National Opera. The present recording is therefore a magnificent visiting card of a great artist at the peak of her abilities.
