Because of her pregnancy Diana Damrau has had to withdraw from singing the role of Zerbinetta in our new production of Ariadne auf Naxos. She will be replaced by Mari Eriksmoen.

She is winner of the National competition for young singers in Norway, of the Kokkola Lied Competition Finnland, of the International Lied Competition for Young Artists as well as the Queen Sonja International Competition.
The young singer has performed for example roles such as Susanna (Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro), Adele (Strauss: Die Fledermaus), Soeur Constance (Poulenc: Les dialogues des Carmelites) and Musetta (Puccini: La Bohéme) at Opera Houses like the Royal Opera in Copenhagen or the New Opera in Oslo.At last she performed again as Mallika (Kverndokk: Around the World in 80 days) at the Norwegian State Opera, where she already sang the world premiere in 2008.
