Nina Stemme (Soprano)
Born: 11th May 1963, Stockholm, Sweden
Swedish soprano Nina Stemme (born May 11 1963) is an opera singer renowned for her stentorian, solid dramatic soprano voice.
In 2006, Nina Stemme made her highly successful role debut in the title role of Aida in a new production at Zürich Opera and recorded her first album as an exclusive artist for EMI Classics of Strauss's Four Last Songs and final scenes.

Gergiev conducts an electrifying Walküre starring René Pape as Wotan, Nina Stemme as his rebel daughter, and Jonas Kaufmann and Anja Kampe as the Walsung Twins; Kaufmann’s solo album of opera scenes and the Wesendock-Lieder, meanwhile, is the best thing he’s ever done.
The German tenor is mesmerising from his very first note, whilst Nina Stemme is scarcely less compelling as his heroic wife Leonore in this exhilarating live concert recording from last year’s Lucerne Festival.
