“Tora Augestad is far more than an academically trained singer. She lives and suffers through her songs, taking her vocal and theatrical capabilities to the max.”Mitteldeutsche Zeitung. Tora Augestad‘s versatility inspires composers, directors and conductors. Always on the lookout for new challenges, she often commissions works and looks for an exchange of artistic ideas in a number of ensembles that she initiated herself. She knows her voice, which defies current classifications of voice type, extremely well and uses her gift with savvy intelligence. She has performed with a.o. Ensemble Modern, Ensemble Contrechamps and Klangforum Wien and at the Venice Biennale, the Theater Basel and Maerz Musik in Berlin, the Edinburgh International Festival and the Zurich Opera.
