To our deepest regret Inga Nielsen passed away Feb 11. Despite her severe illness, the Kgl. Kammersangerinde remained active until the end: she did a recital tour last December, two weeks ago she spoke at an international opera conference in Lisboa, and she was scheduled to sing the opening night of Elektra, later this month, in Teatro la Fenice di Venezia. The Danish soprano is cover of the latest edition of Opernglas. Her key roles included Leonore, Elsa, Elisabeth, Chrysotemis, Salome and Erwartung. Over 40 years Ms Nielsen sang at the Royal Opera House, Opra National de Paris Bastille, Bayerische Staatsoper Mnchen, Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona and the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. She had strong artistic relationships with Placido Domingo, Zubin Mehta, Sir Georg Solti and Antonio Pappano. 92 Ms Nielsen was honoured by the Queen of Denmark with the Order of the Dannebrog.

We express our deepest condolences to Ingas mother and brother; and family and friends. We enjoyed working for Inga as she was always full of warmth and sympathy towards all of us in the office.
