Charlotte Engelkes rewarded prestigious music prize!!

On Monday 18th February Charlotte Engelkes received the music prize "Spelmannen 2012".

The prestigious music prize, of the Swedish tabloid Expressen, has existed since 1957.

Together with Lindy Larsson she performed a piece from Siegfried-the Very Wagner Hero Hour, warming up for the Very Wagnerian Night at the Royal Opera.

Juryns motivering:

Charlottes Engelkes personifierar idén om operans allkonstverk i egen hög person. Hon desarmerar det anspråksfulla och vårdar det storslagna. Oavsett om det gäller Wagner, Schubert, Strindberg eller andra spöken, lämnar man en ­föreställning av Engelkes med ett leende på läpparna och en känsla av att man fått kontakt med konstens innersta, i form av en kvinna.

With passion, courage and humor the Swedish stage personality Charlotte Engelkes takes on the operatic giant, Richard Wagner. Like Wagner, Engelkes creates a Gesamtkunstverk in which she uses all of her rich theatrical imagination. It’s fun, serious and packed with references to the opera world.

For one evening we present Charlotte Engelkes’ praised performances Miss Very Wagner and Siegfried – The Very Wagner Hero Hour.How does a good soprano behave? That is the question in the solo performance Miss Very Wagner where Charlotte Engelkes examines what separates and unites four Wagnerian heroines; Senta from The Flying Dutchman, Elsa in Lohengrin, Tristan’s Isolde and Brünnhilde of the Ring Cycle. In Siegfried, the focus shifts to the male hero, embodied by the multitalented actor Lindy Larsson who is seconded by Charlotte Engelkes playing the roles of dwarf, dragon and valkyrie.

“This performance will be legendary” - SvD
“An intelligent, fun and gripping depiction of the absurd and often inhuman circumstances that generates a hero” -
