Competitions

Shared 1st Prize in the 1st NINA International Solo Competition in Bergen, Norway (2012)

"...The real stand-out for me was Eira Sjaastad-Huse’s Ottavia, whose deep, powerful voice brought clout to a character I usually find rather dull. Sjaastad-Huse’s acting also underlined the fact that Ottavia is not, as sometimes played, a purely wronged, virtuous figure."..."that smoky, burnished-bronze voice. Wow." www.theidlewoman.net (2017)

"For me, it was Swedish and Norwegian mezzo Eira Sjaastad-Huse who was my favourite. Her embodiment of the neglected empress Ottavia is captivated, more so is her voice, which is alluring and a pleasure to hear." - www.trendfem.com (2017)

..."The voices of Ottavia (Eira Sjaastad-Huse) and Ottone (Collin Shay) stood out in particular due to their timbre qualities." - www.playstosee.com (2017)

Bachtrack: "A thrillingly well-sung Ottavia from Eira Sjaastad-Huse, with extraordinary stage presence and a burnished, penetratingly full soprano" (2017)
