The norwegian soprano Kristi Anna Isene studied at the Grieg Academy of Music (N) and graduated with a master degree in opera at the Institut für Musiktheater in Karlsruhe (GER) by Maria Venuti with a DAAD scholarship. She was engaged at numerous operahouses. For example at the Staatsoper Stuttgart, Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspielen, Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Volkschauspiele Ötigheim, Pasinger Fabrik München, Theater Haugesund (N) and Nasjonale Opera Bergen (N) where she sang small and leading roles such as Rusalka (Rusalka), 1.Dame and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Frau Fluth (Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsdor), Zerlina and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), Prinzessin (Die liebe zu den drei Orangen), Agathe (Der Freischütz), and Contessa (Le Nozze di Figaro). Starting from the season 2015/16 she sings as a regular soloist at the Theater Vorpommern. There she has already had important debuts; Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte), Fuchs Kraushaar (Das schlaue Füchslein), Micaëla (Carmen), and Gräfin Mariza (Gräfin Mariza). This season she will sing Elisabeth (Tannhäuser) and Amelia (Un ballo e maschera).
