Soprano Sonja Herranen is among the most promising  young Finnish sopranos. Her noble and expansive voice and natural stage presence has already received acclaim in many competitions and various opera- and concert stages.

In spring 2023 she won the Elisabeth Connell Prize International Singing Competition in London. Earlier in the same year she was awarded the second prize and the Finnish National Opera Foundation's special prize in the national Lappeenranta Singing Competition. In 2019 she won the second prize in Savonlinna Opera Festival Timo Mustakallio Singing Competition.

In 2022 Sonja Herranen made a successful debut as the First Lady in Mozart’s Magic Flute at the Finnish National Opera. In the season 2023-24 she will sing the role of Third Norn in Wagner’s Götterdämmerung. In summer 2024 she will debut as Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the Savonlinna Opera Festival.

She is also a sought-after soloist in concert arenas, and has recently sung with notable conductors such as Tarmo Peltokoski, James Gaffigan and Ville Matvejeff.

Sonja Herranen has studied at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre with soprano Heli Veskus, and privately with Dale Fundling.

The RING closes in Helsinki
While it's been almost five years since the premiere of Das Rheingold, the Finnish audience now gets to experience the fourth and final part of the Finnish National Opera's new RING, staged by director Anna Kelo.
The conclusion of Wagner's monumental epic, Götterdämmerung, celebrates its premiere on May 17th and, like the first three parts, the piece is conducted by Hannu Lintu.
On stage the audience gets to see and hear three BOM artists; Tuomas Pursio as Gunther, Marjukka Tepponen as Woglinde, and Sonja Herranen making her debut as 3rd Norn.

Further performance dates:
