leading female role in their new opera production for children ”At the end of
the tunnel” – “For enden af tunnellen”.

The experience on stage as well as the art of acting and being

During her education at The Royal Academy of Music she gained even more stage experience by singing both big and smaller parts in operas in and outside the academy. Among the roles was 1. And 2. Lady in The Magic Flute and Virtu and Pallas Athene in The Coronation of Poppea.

Through her song to be able to tell a story and open a door for the audience
into the world of music and great feelings is a big inspiration as well as a
great goal for Lise Bech Bendix.
