In the fall of 2020, Synne was an intern at the Royal Swedish Opera as Paggio in Rigoletto by Guiseppe Verdi, and the following year she made her professional debut at this opera house with a jump-in in a revival of the same production. During her years of studies, Synne has been a soloist on the main stages of Stockholm Concert House, the Royal Academy of Music and at Ulriksdal Castle Theatre in Stockholm and with several orchestras.
“As to the singing /…/ Synne Vinje was a stylish Musetta...”

In the summer of 2022 Synne made her role debut as the Foreign Princess in Rusalka by Dvorák in Roslagen’s summer production at Österbybruk, conducted by Niklas Tamm and directed by Jennifer Macpherson. Later the same summer, Synne debuted as Musetta in Puccini’s La Bohème at Dalafloda Operafest, a production that was directed by Patrik Sörling and conducted by Eric Solén.
Musetta is the free-spirited, light-footed female character in 'La Bohéme' and she has an aria that quite easily sticks in the memory. Synne Vinje portrays her with bravura, as she mixes wit and sharp humour with empathy and loyalty /...../ a convincing role interpretation and the aria in the second act is superb!

During the course of her studies, Synne has performed as Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème, Tatiana in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Marenka in Smetana’s The Bartered Bride, Anne Trulove in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, Adele in J. Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, Euridice in Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice, Rosina in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust, Adriana in Cilea’s Adriana Lecouvreur, Magda in Puccini’s La Rondine and Governess in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, to mention some. Some roles were performed in full, others in excerpts.
Synne finished her master studies by presenting Tatiana’s Letter Scene from Tchaikovskij’s opera Eugene Onegin, and finally in June 2022, with a production in Gävle Theatre , where she performed as the title role in an excerpt of Suor Angelica by Puccini, together with Gävle Symphony Orchestra.
“Synne Vinje’s Angelica is as bright as her aunt is somber and ominous, an angel in a nun’s robe who turns sorrow into love - gripping and convincing.”
