La Traviata

Elsinore Chamber Opera

‘Camilla Illeborg sang with radiance and allure in her first act turn as the life of the party and object of the men’s adoration; with resignation in the second act duet with Alfredo’s father, when he asks her to leave his son; and sotto voce in the last act, as she lay dying.  A powerful performance, as though the role of Violetta were written for her’.

Ole Josephsen, Helsingør Dagblad, October 2018


La Bohéme

Elsinore Chamber Opera


‘Rodolfo [Niels Jørgen Riis] sings Che gelida manina, and Mimì answers with Mi chiamano Mimì, two of the opera literature’s most famous arias. This is bel canto at its finest, and both arias came across with an intensity that filled the hall. […] It was moving enough to bring spontaneous tears to the eyes. The audience rewarded this intense experience with a standing ovation’.

Ole Josephsen, Helsingør Dagblad, December 2017



Elsinore Chamber Opera

‘During her showdown with Scarpia, Tosca sings, Vissi d’arte, vissi d’amore, expressing her confusion as to why God is punishing her.  It is one of the great soprano arias in the opera literature, and Camilla Illeborg laid bare her pain in a poised interpretation that demonstrated vocal mastery, even in the highest notes’.
