“Charlotte Hellekant offered the greatest acting I have ever witnessed on an opera stage.”
A vocally expressive and compelling stage performer with a repertoire ranging from the baroque to contemporary classics, Charlotte Hellekant is one of Scandinavia’s leading mezzo-sopranos with a career which is equally successful on both the opera stage and concert platform.
Performances in the current season include her role debut as Charlotte in Höstsonaten for Malmö Opera under Patrik Ringborg and at the Hong Kong Cutural Centre under Mikko Franck and she appears as Polina in a new production of Pique Dame by David Martin at La Monnaie under the baton of Nathalie Stutzmann. Concerts engagements include Mahler Symphony No.8 with Oslo Philharmonie (Mikko Franck) and Mahler Symphony No.3 at Casa da Musica under Baldur Brönnimann.
“Swedish soloist Charlotte Hellekant, with a burnished tone very much on the contralto side of mezzo, effortlessly conveyed and projected the weight of Nietzsche’s rather sombre text.”
(The New Zealand Herald, April 2016)
“Charlotte Hellekant in the dual role of Messenger and Hope gives the finest and most distinguished of vocal performances combining depth of expression and a dignified presence.”
(Karin Coper, Opernnetz.de, July 2015)
“Hellekant, an arrestingly versatile mezzo who sings early music, 19th century opera and modern works, sang from memory. Barefoot and displaying ankle bracelets, she brought a Gypsy-like theatrical vitality, a huge voice and fervent attention to word and tone.”
