Our soprano Julia Gunvor Lindgren receives this year´s scholarship from Barbro Salén.
This year's Opera scholarship from Barbro Salén's Foundation is aimed at students at Stockholm University of the Arts to provide the opportunity for continued special studies abroad. The scholarship, which is worth SEK 200,000, was awarded to the soprano Julia Gunvor Lindgren.
The awarding of the scholarship took place at the performance of Tosca on 25 April at the Royal Opera House.
The scholarship board's justification:
"Julia possesses a dense, very beautiful lyrical soprano with confident technique that promises a lot for the future. The jury would especially like to praise her heartfelt interpretation of Mimi's aria from Puccini's opera La Boheme. Julia not only sings, but portrays the role with heavenly pianissimo on high".
In the spring of 2023, Julia Lindgren will participate in the production of Salome at the Royal Opera House. She originally comes from Gothenburg.
