Ingrid Bjoner

Ingrid Bjöner initially studied pharmacy at the University of Oslo, gaining her degree in this subject  in 1951. She was however also a vocal pupil of Gudrun Boellemose in Oslo, and made a major impression in a concert given in Oslo Cathedral in 1952. Her vocal studies continued: in Germany with Paul Lohmann in Frankfurt and with Franziska Martienssen-Lohmann in Düsseldorf, and later with Ellen Rapp in New York.

In the Norwegian Radio production of Götterdämmerung, mounted for Kirsten Flagstad in 1956, Bjöner sang the Third Norn and Gutrune; and in 1957 she not only made her début with the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo as Donna Anna/Don Giovanni, but also sang the title rôle in Handel’s opera Rodelinda at the Drottningholm Festival at the invitation of Flagstad. Between 1957 and 1959 Bjöner was a member of the Wuppertal Opera; and of the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf-Duisburg between 1959 and 1961. She made her first appearance at the Vienna State Opera in 1959 and sang there regularly until 1986 in parts such as Desdemona/Othello, Leonore/Fidelio, Rezia/Oberon, and the title rôles in Ariadne auf Naxos and Turandot. In 1960 she made her débuts in San Francisco as Elsa/Lohengrin and at the Bayreuth Festival as Freia, Helmwige, and Gutrune in Der Ring, conducted by Rudolf Kempe.
