Iréne Theorin stars as Elektra in return to Royal Swedish Opera

External Links:
Royal Swedish Opera

Iréne Theorin returns to Royal Swedish Opera this month to star as Elektra in Steffan Valdemar Holm's production, opening on 10 January 2018. The production is conducted by Simone Young.


This production follows her sensational return to Gran Teatre del Liceu as Isolde Tristan und Isolde which was received with critical acclaim:


“The spectators of the Liceu demanded Iréne Theorin, cheering her name… A delirium was created about Tristan and Isolde... And not only for the merits of the extraordinary Swedish singer, but for her metaphysical and moving version of 'Liebestod' in the opera's conclusion… Iréne Theorin served as helmsman on this voyage… Iréne Theorin bewitched us. And it was fair to claim her by her name. Iréne or Isolde, both are one in the identification exercise that caused an uproar in the Liceu. The navigating and the climbing of Tristan and Isolde is not easy. It requires attention, concentration, physical effort and intellectual commitment, but the difficulties of the ascent are the stimulus that predispose us to the sublime vision of the top. There, Irene Theorin became disembodied or undid the earthly bonds. She disappeared into the "procés… Iréne, Iréne, Iréne", shouted the spectators to claim Theorin…”
El Pais, December 2017


A hugely acclaimed interpreter of Strauss’ works, Theorin has distinguished herself as one of the most engaging Elektras today:


"Swedish dramatic soprano Iréne Theorin fitted the bill magnificently... Theorin slowly and assuredly develops and moulds the character of Elektra tightly controlling her emotions and expressions while at the same time playing the waiting and psychological game for her moment of revenge..."
Opera Critic


"Theorin was nothing short of miraculous. [...] Her high notes, while never shrill, had a colour that consistently declared that something terrible was destined to happen. Both vocally and physically, Theorin was a pillar of artistic strength. In phrase after phrase, she hurled out razor-sharp, blazing highs with a power and purpose declaring that Elektra was determined to get her way in the end."
Classical Voice America


Later this season Theorin returns to Wiener Staatsoper as Brünnhilde in The Ring Cycle. Further ahead she makes appearances as Ortrud Lohengrin, title role Turandot, title role La Gioconda and Brünnhilde The Ring Cycle.


Performances of Elektra continue until 4 February.

Iréne Theorin signs with Intermusica

03 May 2016

Intermusica is thrilled to announce the signing of Swedish dramatic soprano Iréne Theorin for worldwide management, excluding Sweden and Italy.


Commenting on her signing, Theorin said: “I am very excited to be joining Intermusica and all of the creative force it has to offer. I am certain that our work together will only enhance my artistic path as well as my personal and professional goals."


One of the most celebrated dramatic sopranos of today, Iréne Theorin is a regular guest at opera houses and concert venues across the world, where her Strauss and Wagner interpretations have won major critical and public acclaim. A graduate of the Music Academy and Royal Opera School in Copenhagen, Theorin has performed at Teatro alla Scala, Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Berliner Staatsoper, Staatsoper Vienna, Salzburg Festival, Bayerische Staatsoper, Opera de Paris, Semperoper Dresden and at Bayreuth Festival.


Particularly associated with German dramatic repertoire, she has garnered huge acclaim for her intense musicality, engaging performances and vocal flexibility. Recent engagements include Brünnhilde the Ring Cycle (La Scala, Metropolitan Opera, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Washington National Opera, Gran Teatre del Liceu, Berliner Staatsoper, the Wagner Festival in Budapest, Oper Leipzig, Oper Köln and New National Theatre Tokyo), Isolde Tristan und Isolde (Bayreuth Festival, Théâtre de la Monnaie, Washington National Opera, Wiener Staatsoper, Tokyo, Berlin, Copenhagen), Elektra (Salzburg Festival, Opéra de Paris), Turandot (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, San Francisco Opera, Essen, Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Guangzhou, Dresden, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Metropolitan Opera New York, Bayerische Staatsoper and Arena di Verona) and Santuzza Cavalleria Rusticana (The Royal Danish Theatre, Copenhagen and The Mikhailovsky Theatre).

“The best thing of the whole Ring was being able to fully count on Iréne Theorin… the Swedish soprano is a force of nature. [Brünnhilde’s] immolation scene, so difficult after several hours of representation, was sung in front of the black curtain with no scenic support… Iréne managed to get time to stand still… [when] the orchestra linked the leitmotiv of love culminating in the beautiful A Flat, the theatre collapsed. It was the successful culmination of a prolonged ecstasy."
El Mundo, March 2016


Further engagements this season have included a new production of Götterdämmerung at Teatro Massimo di Palermo, Elektra in Dresden, Tove Gurre-Lieder, Opéra National de Paris with Phillipe Jordan and the title role of Turandot at Royal Opera House Muscat.
