The Opera Singer

Anna Larsson has, with her rich, melliflous, ”dark velvet” voice, among other roles, achieved international recognition and status as the world's foremost exponent of Erda in Wagner's ”Der Ring des Nibelungen”, with performances at opera houses in Berlin, Vienna, Munich, Salzburg, Aix-en-Provence, and Stockholm.
