Nina Stemme

Swedish-born soprano Nina Stemme is considered a leading singer of the dramatic opera’s most challenging roles, including Isolde in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, Kundry in Par­sifal, and the title roles in Richard Strauss’s Salome and Elektra, as well as Puccini’s La fanciulla del West and Turandot. Since winning Plácido Domingo’s Operalia, The World Opera Competition in 1993, Ms. Stemme has furthered the tradition of her Scandinavian predecessors Kirsten Flagstad and Birgit Nilsson at leading opera houses, including The Metropolitan Opera, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, the Bayreuth Festival, Vienna Staatsoper, and The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Her numerous other prizes, awards, and honors throughout her career include being named 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. Nina Stemme’s future projects include Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle not only with the New York Philharmonic but also in Munich; Turandot at The Met; Tosca and Tristan and Isolde in Berlin; and the role of Brünnhilde in the Ring Cycle in Vienna.
