STOCKHOLM/DROTTNINGHOLM (April 25, 2014) -- The world-renowned mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg presents a full evening concert at Drottningholms Slottsteater on August 15, 2014, along with the Drottningholm Theatre Orchestra under the direction of the theater's Artist in Residence Director David Stern. Stern has along with Hallenberg selected the beautiful and dramatic pieces by Mozart and Haydn in the program.
Ann Hallenberg has long been an internationally active and acclaimed artist. She regularly visits concert halls and opera festivals throughout Europe and North America and has also made a series of CD and DVD recordings. Her album "Hidden Handel" won the award for the best opera concert in the International Opera Awards 2014.
"Ann Hallenberg is one of opera's most profound artists. Not only does she possess a beautiful instrument, but she infuses her roles with a vocal flexibility and a linguistic panache that reminds us why opera is in truth music drama. She defines vocal excitement," says David Stern.
The Concert with Ann Hallenberg, is held August 15th at 07:30 PM. Ticket sales will start on April 25 via www.ticnet.se and phone +46-77-170 70 70.
An hour before the concert conductor David Stern, Drottningholms Slottsteater's Artist in Residence in 2014, gives a pre concert talk on the program and his work with soloist and orchestra, starting at 06.30 PM in the Déjeuner Salon. The concert is part of the the theatre's Esprit! program created to embrace new formats, collaborations and surprising events targeted to a wider and younger audience.

She performs regularly in opera houses around the world such as the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Teatro Real Madrid, Theater an der Wien, the Opéra National Paris, Bayerische Staatsoper Munich.
