Lena Kristin Ellingsen won The Hedda Award 2015 in the best supporting actress category for the double role of Belinda and the witch.

The Hedda Jury gave the following reason:

"The winner in the best supporting actress category is characterised by strong onstage charisma, both mirroring and expanding the action. In her interpretation of the role she succeeds with a particular, calm presence that creates an onstage space of its own and lets the audience see the action through her. With effortless musicality in a demanding challenge, she stands to be a worthy winner.

The best supporting actress award goes to Lena Kristin Ellingsen."

Dido + Aeneas was the fourth production in The Torshov Theatres' musical theatre laboratory project Musikklab.
