Elisabeth Teige has established herself as one of the most sought-after young dramatic sopranos in Scandinavia, known for her warm, beautiful timbre, intuitive musicality and compelling stage presence. Born and raised in Ålesund in Norway, Elisabeth took her first musical steps as a percussionist in the school marching band. In high school she played the drums and sang pop music and Norwegian folk songs, before discovering a more classical tone in her voice.

After completing her studies at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim and the National Opera Academy in Oslo, she spent two seasons as a part of The Norwegian National Opera young artist program.
In 2015 she made her Wagner debut as Senta in Der fliegende Holländer at the Norwegian National Opera, a performance which was received with standing ovations. She has portrayed the role many times after this.
The future includes engagements at Semperoper Dresden, The Norwegian National Opera & Ballet, Nationaltheater Mannheim, Staatsoper Hamburg, Deutsche Oper Berlin and Bayreuther Festspiele.
