Opera star Diana Damrau will take the stage to pay tribute to the 2022 Nobel Prize laureates
Bringing extra star power to this year’s Nobel Prize Concert on 8 December will be German soprano Diana Damrau. Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck will lead the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra at the concert, which is held in honour of the Nobel Prize laureates.
German opera star Diana Damrau performs on all the major stages in the world, such as the Vienna State Opera, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, La Scala in Milan (where she has also had the honour of inaugurating the entire season on two occasions) and the Royal Opera House in London. For many years she has been in the absolute top tier of opera singers, and she is now making her debut at Konserthuset Stockholm (the Stockholm Concert Hall). Among other things, she will sing opera arias by Mozart.
In recent years, Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck has built a close relationship with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. He is Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra but also conducts many of the world’s other most prestigious orchestras. For many people in Sweden, he is also a well-known name after his years as Chief Conductor of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Tickets will be released at a later date at Konserthuset Stockholm.
The Nobel Prize Concert is an annual concert that is part of the Nobel Week official program celebrating that year’s Nobel Prize laureates. It is presented by Nobel Prize Outreach in cooperation with Konserthuset Stockholm.
