Anna Larsson and Göran Eliasson were also deeply involved in Dalhalla Opera, an opera festival held every summer in August at the magnificent old limestone quarry Dalhalla in Dalecarlia. In 2013 Anna co-produced Wagner's ”Das Rheingold” and in 2015 ”Turandot” with Nina Stemme in the title role, both great artistic and popular successes. In 2016 Anna made her role debut as Carmen in Dalhalla.
Anna Larsson has her roots in the village of Vattnäs in Dalecarlia, where her father was born. In 2011 Anna and her husband Göran Eliasson built the Vattnäs Concert Barn, a concert hall seating 300 people, on their own land by the Orsa lake, a stunningly beautiful setting for their dream projects. An annual festival is held in July. Since the opening they have produced seven chamber operas (three world premieres!) and several concerts at the Concert Barn.
