The Norwegian soprano rose to fame in 2015, after garnering awards at the Operalia competition in London and the Queen Sonja International Music Competition in Oslo. Last season she debuted at the Zurich Opera (as Agathe in Der Freischütz), Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires (as Isabella in Das Liebesverbot), the Glyndebourne Festival (in the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos), and at Wigmore Hall in a recital debut. During the 17/18 season she debuts as Ariadne at the Vienna Opera and the Aix-en-Provence Festival, and as Cheribini's Medea at Wexford Festival. Concert engagements include an artist residency with the Philarmonic Orchestra of Bergen, where she also performs in recital with James Baillieau. Her upcoming engagements include debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, Covent Garden, the Bayreuth Festival, The Munich Opera, and Deutsche Oper Berlin.


Described by The Daily Telegraph as "in a class of his own", James Baillieu has been the prize-winner of the Wigmore Hall Song Competition, Das Lied International Song, and Kathleen Ferrier and Richard Tauber competitions. In addition to performing as a soloist with the Ulster Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Wiener Kammersymphonie, he has collaborated with a wide range of singers, among them Ian Bostridge, Dame Kiri te Kanawa, Annette Dasch, Jamie Barton, Markus Werba and Catherine Wyn Rogers. An innovative programmer, Baillieu has curated a good number of projects, including series for the Brighton Festival, Wigmore Hall, BBC Radio 3, Bath International Festival and Perth Concert Hall. He enjoys working with young musicians and is a professor at the  Royal Academy of Music and for the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House, a course leader for the Samling Foundation, and is head of the Song Programme at the Atelier Lyrique of the Verbier Festival Academy.
