Eira Huse

Singer/Mezzo

Often praised for her unique timbre and expression, the young Norwegian mezzo-soprano Eira Sjaastad Huse divides her time equally between opera and lieder. She recently sang Ottavia in Hampstead Garden Opera's production of L'incoronazione di Poppea by Monteverdi and recieved great reviews. She also performed Bianca in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia for Lidal NORTH at The Norwegian Opera & Ballet. She has performed together with Henning Kraggerud, Helge Kjekshus, Matti Hirvonen, Clemens Flick and Oliver John-Ruthven; her forthcoming engagements include appearances at Mozartfestivalen 2018 curated by Håvard Gimse and her role debut as Dido (Dido and Aeneas) at Ramme Gård Opera in 2019. Eira was one of 26 singers invited to participate in The Wigmore Hall/Kohn International Song Competition 2015 in Wigmore Hall.
