Since she finished her studies at the Royal Opera Academy in Copenhagen in 2010, has Mari Eriksmoen had what many views as a comet career. It reached an important high when she had her debut at Teatro alla Scana in Milan in 2013, as Waldvogel in Wagner’s Siegfried.
Eriksmoen had her debut at the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet when she was only 23 years old, in the touring performance “the opera is coming!”. Here she has also sung the part as Olympia in The Tales of Hoffmann, Adéle in Die Fladermaus and had rave reviews as Pamina in the Magic Flute. Her big international breakthrough came when she, on short notice, stepped in as Zerbinetta in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos in Vienna, for the star Diana Damrau.
Other important tasks include engagements at Theater an der Wien, Oper Frankfurt, The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Stockholms Operan, Opéra de Lille, Zürich Oper, Bayerische Staatsoper, La Monnaie, Glyndebourne Festival, Concertgebouw, Festival d’Aix en Provence, Lucerne Festival, Baden-Baden Festspiele, Dutch National Opera and BBC Proms. Recently, she had her debut as a soloist with Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philhamonic.
At home in Norway, you can hear her as Susanna in the Marriage of Figaro and Sofie in Der Rosenkavalier at the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.
