Swedish opera artist Anne Sofie von Otter, who has netted two Grammy awards, is scheduled to take the stage for the first time at the Vietnam Academy of Music in Hanoi City this Friday, March 2, according to the Swedish Embassy in Vietnam.

The performance is part of a series of programs to celebrate the 49th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Vietnam (1969-2018).

Anne Sofie von Otter has gained international recognition for her contributions to the Swedish music industry, and exemplary achievements by grasping two Grammy awards and marking the astonishing milestone in her singing career over the past 30 years.

Her album Douce France released in 2013 bagged the Grammy Award in 2015 for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, following the same award for Best Classical Vocal Performance in 2004 for a disc of Schubert Lieder.

Before touring Vietnam, the award-winning artist has made her appearance at leading operas and prestigious music festivals around the world and gained much applause from global music lovers.

During her first concert in the country, she will share the stage with pianist Leif Kaner-Lidström and guitarist Fabian Fredriksson. 

As part of her first-ever tour to Vietnam, she will meet up and have a lecture on masterclasses for music students of Vietnam Academy of Music on March 3.

Vietnam has emerged as a new destination for international artists who have put the country on their global tours in an effort to approach more Vietnamese fans and push up cultural exchanges. 

Last year, the Grammy-award winning American DJ and producer duo Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, better known as The Chainsmokers, paid a visit to the country on their Asian tour.
