the committee had this to say:Lise Davidsen graduated from the Opera Academy at the Royal Theatre in 2014. She made her debut with a convincing Rosalinde in “Die Fledermaus” and earlier this season she displayed her formidable voice as Emilia in Verdi’s “Otello”. Foreign countries have already sent for her, and we predict a bright career for this dramatic soprano. – quote Reumert Committee 2014.
