Yngve Søberg*

”His vocal range is one that reminds us what a real Rigoletto should sound like. I am convinced that him having his own style, and presenting the evolution of the role through his vocal abilities, will make this interpretation one of the most impressive and complete (Rigoletto) performances on the world opera scene”. – Rigoletto 15.09.2018, Simone Tomei, Archivio giornale.

Yngve Søberg made his role debut as Rigoletto at the Opera di Firenze under the baton of Fabio Luisi, and as Sharpless in Madama Butterfly in Zürich also under the baton of Fabio Luisi. Same season he did the role as Alfio in Cavalleria rusticana and Tonio in Pagliacci in Graz. In the summer of 2019, he had the title role in Rigoletto at the Bregenzer Festspiele and the role as Amonasro in Aida at the OscarsborgOperaen. Yngve’s first role at the Norwegian National Opera was as the sacristan in Puccini’s Tosca in 2007.
