In celebration of the 2011 Birgit Nilsson Prize, a photo exhibition is now on display in the lobby of the Royal Swedish Opera. The exhibition comprises photographs of the various roles that Birgit Nilsson performed at the Royal Opera in Stockholm during her celebrated career. The pictures portray the many faces of Birgit Nilsson – starting with La Nilsson in the role of Lady MacBeth in 1947 to the last role she sang at the Royal Opera, Brünnhilde, in 1981.
The exhibition runs until the 31st of October, and is open to all visitors attending a performance at the Royal Opera. The doors open two hours before the beginning of the respective performance.
