In 1993 Randi Stene had her international breakthrough in the role of Octavian in Der Rosenkavalier at the Bastille Opera in Paris. At the Barbican in London Randi Stene also had a great success as Octavian conducted by Charles Mackerras, and at Covent Garden she appeared in a production of Palestrina by Hans Pfitzner, which took her on to the Metropolitan Opera in New York. As a concert singer Randi Stene has appeared in among other things Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream conducted by Christoph von Dohnanyi, Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Berlioz’ L’enfance du Christ and Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
