Lise Davidsen


Norwegian lyric-dramatic soprano Lise Davidsen was born in 1987 and studied at the Grieg Academy of Music and the Royal Danish Music Conservatory, initially training as a mezzo; in 2015 she came to international attention after winning first prize in both Plácido Domingo’s Operalia Competition and the Queen Sonja Competition. Following her debut at Wigmore Hall two years later, the Financial Times described Davidsen as ‘fully armed and ready to take on the world’, whilst Opera Today praised her ‘hugely powerful, gloriously silken and richly glossy…incredibly dramatic voice’.
