Elisabet Petsalo

In our production Elisabet Petsalo brings her mellifluous voice to the role of Nutrice, Empress Ottavia’s nursemaid. A student of the opera class at the Sibelius Academy, Elisabet is also a qualified cantor in the Orthodox church. Currently she is one of the most promising mezzo-sopranos in Finland. I happened to hear an audience member rush up to Elisabet after a recent performance and say, with great sincerity, that Elisabet’s singing was the most beautiful he had ever heard. For a singer, feedback doesn’t get much better than this! The picture captures Elisabet in Sibelius Academy’s production as the Gingerbread Witch in Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel.
