The Norwegian mezzo-soprano began singing at the early age of five. After studying at the Toneheim College of Music in Hammer and at the Stavanger Conservatoire, she completed her training in the USA, where she was awarded several diplomas as a singer and actress.

In the 2009/2010 season, Julie-Marie Sundal was a member of the International Opera Studio at the theatre in Lübeck, where she sang roles like Erda in DAS RHEINGOLD and SIEGFRIED, Schwertleite in DIE WALKÜRE and Flosshilde in GÖTTERDÄMMERUNG – the latter production was awarded the ECHO Klassik Prize as Best Opera DVD in 2011/2012.

A member of the ensemble at the State Theatre of Lower Saxony in Hanover since the 2011/2012 season, she has sung in Wagner's RING Cycle (director: Barry Kosky) and in Puccini's IL TRITTICO (director: Sebastian Baumgarten).

In addition to her opera work, Julie-Marie Sundal has enjoyed success on the concert stage. Lieder recitals have seen the young singer perform in Japan, Germany, the USA and her Norwegian homeland.
