Mariann Fjeld-Solberg



While studying at the University College of Opera in Stockholm, Mariann Fjeld-Solberg sang her first role at Stockholm’s Royal Opera, 23 years of age. In 2004 she was awarded the Jenny Lind Scholarship, which led to a recital tour of the USA. She then went on to win both the National Queen Sonja Music Competition and the Malmö Vocal Competition in 2007. In 2008 she received a two years recital engagement award from Concerts Norway.

Fjeld-Solberg has appeared in several roles at The Norwegian National Opera, including Mimì (La Bohème), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte) and Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), a role she also recently performed at Norrlandsoperan, Umeå Sweden and in 2011 with Peter Mattei in his triumphant rendition at the Mattei Festival in Luleå. She has also worked at the Bergen National Opera, The Folk Opera in Stockholm, Malmö Opera, Savonlinna Festival in Finland and the Ringsaker Opera, singing roles such as Micaëla (Carmen) and Marguerite (Faust) among others.

Fjeld-Solberg appears extensively in concert and has performed with Düsseldorfer Symfoniker, Nordnorsk Symphony Orchestra, St Petersburg Academic Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and several others, working with conductors such as Louis Langrée, Fabio Biondi, Rinaldo Alessandrini and Jun Märkl.

Mariann Fjeld-Solberg’s interpretation of Susanna allows her to skillfully showcase her broad register, from flirtation to outrage to amiability. Her voice glitters in the higher register. Musically a convincing portrayal.

Susanna (Mariann Fjeld-Solberg) is so seductive in the garden-scene that this becomes the evening’s biggest testament to the enchanting power of opera.

Daniel Johansson does a wonderful Rodolfo and Mariann Fjeld Olsen as Mimi stood out strongly. We can expect alot from these two in the years to comeKjell Moe – Kulturspeilet

Mariann Fjeld Olsen singt Solvejg und Anitra mit betörend reinen Glockentönen und erdigen Farben in der MittellageRegine Müller – RP Online

Perfectly cast, both vocally and dramatically, was his (Figaro’s) Susanna, soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen, whose warmly shimmering voice was projected with admirable volume, and who has a natural, sweet radiance onstage.Ingrid Gäfvert – Opera News

Mariann Fjeld Olsen was a revelation as SusannaDagbladet

The norwegian soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen, Louis Langrée and the orchestra seemed to have played «Deh vieni non tardar» together since she learned to walkGunilla Brodrej Expressen

But the previous day had brought a revelation with a recital of various composers from the enchanting soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen and pianist Bernt Wilhelmsson. The empathy between the two was palpable and the atmosphere they created was audience-embracing. The ending will always remain with me. Readers will know I am uneasy about encores, but the one here was perfect: Grieg’s almost impossibly poignant ¨The last spring¨, delivered so meltingly here in the composers home.Christopher Morley – Birmingham Post

Soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen quickly distinguished herself with a polished, rounded tone that filled the West Garden Court. Her renditions of two Grieg songs, an enigmatic “En Svane” and a bittersweet “Våren,” showcased her ability to control her potential volume, creating a shimmering tone pregnant with melancholy nostalgia. The “Song to the Moon,” from Dvorák’s “Rusalka,” sat beautifully with Olsen’s voice, which blossomed on a gorgeous and potent high note at the end.Charles T. Downey – Washington Post

Yngve André Søberg (Figaro) and Mariann Fjeld Olsen (Susanna) were both excellent. In the third act Fjeld Olsen sounded wonderful in the irresistibly beautiful duet with the Count.Trond Olav Svendsen – Morgenbladet

Mariann Fjeld Olsen (Susanna) keeps the tension alive all night. Cheeky and sassy, with a lively articulation and lovely lines, especially in her final aria.Steffen Kammler – Klassekampen

The high point of the concert was, for me, the soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen and her interpretations of the Kurt Weill songs. Here she showcased the entire specter of her voice, from low intensity to full-toned outbursts. Performed with a force and presence that made us hold our breath, and for a moment forget the entire competition.Geir Rege – Bergens Tidende

Susanna (the exellent Mariann Fjeld Olsen), with her passion for moral, stands out as the big hero.Andreas Söderberg – Norrbottens Kuriren

Mariann Fjeld Olsen, both vocally and dramatically, gave it all and stood out as the high point of the evening.Arnstein Olaisen – Haugesunds avis

Mariann Fjeld Olsen (Susanna), has a slim and precise soprano, combined with a lively stage-presence.Torkil Olav Baden – NRK

How long will the the sound of phenomenal music stay in your memory? How long will the healing crystal-tones of the ravishing soprano Mariann Fjeld Olsen, from Grieg’s house in Troldhaugen, linger in your thoughts?Anne Middelboe Christensen – information.dk

Mariann Fjeld Olsen was awarded the Jenny Lind scholarship for her dazzling vocal technique, well anchored in a convincing musical insight, genuinely integrated in an unusually secure and free stage-presence.Jenny Lind jury, 2004

Mariann Fjeld Olsen, with her feverishly burning soprano, creates an absolutely convincing, credible and empathetic portrait of an over-excited and weak girl who seeks confirmation, whom is humiliated and manipulated, but against all odds allows the will to live conquer the death drive.Karin Helander – Svenska Dagbladet
