Superstar Nina Stemme is one of Sweden’s most internationally acclaimed dramatic sopranos. She has won many prizes and distinctions, including the Swedish Government’s Music Export Prize for “excellent contributions to the export of Swedish music” in 2016, as well as the Birgit Nilsson Prize in 2018. Stemme regularly sings on the world’s most prestigious opera stages: the Vienna State Opera, London Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, La Scala in Milan, Metropolitan Opera in New York and the operas in Frankfurt and Zürich. She has performed at Konserthuset Stockholm on multiple occasions, most recently in 2020.

In addition to concerts in the Nordic region and elsewhere in Europe, he has also performed in the US. Magnus Svensson obtained his soloist diploma from the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, graduated with honours as top student, and then immersed himself in the study of lied interpretation in London. Since 2012, he has also worked at the Royal Swedish Academy of Music with re-publishing older Swedish music.
