Biography
Nina Stemme

For years, Swedish-born soprano Nina Stemme has been considered a leading singer of dramatic opera’s most challenging roles, including Isolde (in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde), Brünnhilde and Kundry (Wagner’s Ring Cycle), the title roles in Richard Strauss’s Salome and Elektra, and the title roles in Puccini’s La fanciulla del West and Turandot. Her respect for the roles and the operas themselves and her voice, flexibility, diversity, musicality, and level-headed estimation of her voice’s potential have established her as an artist of global stature.

In 1993 Ms. Stemme won Plácido Domingo’s Operalia competition. She has since furthered the great tradition of her Scandinavian predecessors Kirsten Flagstad and Birgit Nilsson at leading opera houses, whether at The Metropolitan Opera, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, Bayreuth Festival, Vienna Staatsoper, or The Royal Opera, Covent Garden.

She has received numerous prizes and awards throughout her career, including the titles of Swedish Court Singer and Austrian “Kammersängerin.” The German specialist journal Opernwelt crowned her Singer of the Year twice, in 2005 and 2012. She was awarded the prestigious Birgit Nilsson Prize in a ceremony attended by the Swedish Royal Family at the Royal Swedish Opera in October 2018.

Future projects include appearances in Turandot in Munich, Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle in Stockholm, and Elektra in Chicago, as well as Puccini’s Tosca and her role debut as Färberin in Richard Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten at the Vienna Staatsoper.
