Ann-Helen Moen

A lyric soprano known for her clarity and beauty of tone as well as for the focus of her delivery, Ann-Helen Moen has performed with some of the most distinguished ensembles and companies in the world, from the Bach Collegium Japan and MDR Sinfonieorchester Leipzig to the opera houses of Zürich and Hannover. While widely recognised as a significant interpreter of Mozart, she has also sung Handel’s Semele, Almirena (Rinaldo), and Dorinda (Orlando), as well as Micaëla (Carmen), Tatyana (Eugene Onegin), Madama Butterfly, Antonia (Les Contes d’Hoffmann), Anne Trulove (The Rake’s Progress), Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi), and Mimì (La bohème). Born in Molde, Norway, trained at the Grieg Academy in Bergen and Royal Opera Academy in Copenhagen, and a winner of Norway’s most prestigious singing prize, the Esso Award, she began her career as a company member at Oper Graz, and has appeared at Staatsoper Hannover, Opernhaus Zürich, Danish National Opera, Théâtre Paris-Villette, Teatro Verdi Trieste, and at companies in Germany, Sweden, and Ireland. As a sought-after concert artist she enjoys a particularly close relationship with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, with which she has recorded and toured extensively. Ann-Helen Moen has sung repertoire from Bach to Korngold with all the major Scandinavian orchestras and worked with conductors such as Masaaki Suzuki, Rinaldo Alessandrini, William Christie, Harry Christophers, Sir Andrew Davis, Eivind Gullberg Jensen, Philippe Jordan, Kristjan Järvi, Andrew Litton, Susanna Mälkki, and Juanjo Mena.
