The Swedish soprano Ann-Christine Larsson is considered to be one of the foremost Scandinavian singers of her generation. She was very early appointed a Jenny Lind laureate and toured both Sweden and USA.
While still a student at the Stockholm Opera Academy she was engaged to sing at the Drottningholm Court Theatre. Among other roles, she did Amor in Orpheus and Eurydice (Gluck). In 1993 Maestro Gian-Carlo Menotti heard her and immediately invited her to sing Anne Truelove (The Rakes Progress) at the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto. She then went on to Brussels (La Monnais) to sing in Peter Grimes. In 1995 she made her debut at the Stockholm Folk Opera as Desdemona (Othello) and she has since then been a regular guest singing among other the roles of Donna Anna, Micaëla and most recently Tosca.
In 1997 Ann-Christine made her German debut and was engaged as an ensemble member of Oper Bonn. Here she sang numerous roles: Micaëla, Ilia, Merab, Musetta, Nanetta and Susanna to name a few. She stayed at the Oper Bonn until 2002 and has been invited back as guest since then. After coming back to Sweden Ann-Christine has been singing at the Gothenburg Opera (Donna Anna and her first Konstanze). She has also sung at both the Royal Opera in Stockholm and the Copenhagen Royal Opera as Donna Anna, as well as Nanetta in Gothenburg and did a spectacular last minute jump in as the leading role Isabella in the premiere of the modern Swedish opera Sömnkliniken by Carl Unander-Scharin. Ann-Christine has also an extensive Lieder and Concert repertoire and notable performances include collaborations with Paavo Järvi and The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic (Mahler Symphony No.4) and Okko Kamu and The Singapore Symphony Orchestra (Brahms Requiem).
Recent productions includes The Cunning little Vixen by Janacek at Bergen National Opera, Sieben frühe Lieder by Berg with Århus Sinfonietta, Vier Letzte Lieder with Gothenburg University Symphony Orchestra, Dvorak Requiem with The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Beethoven 9th Symphony with Boras Symphony Orchestra and Opera Gala Concert with The Nordic Chamber Orchestra.
Upcoming events include a Gala Concert (among other repertoire The Final scene from Capriccio) with English baritone James Bobby and The Boras Symphony and performances of Mahler 4th Symphonie with The Nordic Chamber Orchestra and conductor Joachim Gustafsson. She will also record Berg Sieben frühe Lieder with the same orchestra and conductor in the near future.
