All marches and waltzes at the New Year's Eve concerts
The star of the evening was soprano Ilona Nymoen. For example, she sang the Saffí aria “So miserable and so true” from The Gypsy Baron with so much drama in her full, warm voice that she was certain to be applauded.
In any case, the orchestra, conducted by violinist Stefan Czermak, had brought along a sovereign singer with charisma in Nymoen. At home in the dramatic field, Nymoen also brings the soprano notes effortlessly without becoming shrill and always has control of her extensive voice.
She was a heartfelt Micaëla in Georges Bizet's opera Carmen, a triumphant Aida in Giuseppe Verdi's opera of the same name, challenged the audience to hum along as Hanna in Franz Lehár's Vilja song and got along well in a duet with Karl Schneider, the bravura tenor roles delivered.”Text by Heide Linde-Lembke

The Hamburg Chamber Soloists had brought along Ilona Nymoen as a soloist. The mezzo-soprano enchanted the audience with her ardent voice and trumped above all with the couplet of Prince Orlofsky from Johann Strauss' operetta "Die Fledermaus".
Nymoen has a stunning penchant for comedy and audibly enjoyed singing both the tipsy Orlofsky and the angry-comic swan song to the man's world of Irmentraut from Albert Lortzing's opera "Der Waffenschmied" with bravura. Ilona Nymoen as Carmen.
