Aase Nordmo Løvberg (10 June 1923 – 25 January 2013) was a Norwegian opera soprano. She was one of the 20th century’s foremost Nordic singers.[citation needed] For many years she sang with Jussi Björling at the Royal Opera in Stockholm, and she also sang under renowned conductors such as Herbert von Karajan and Georg Solti.

Løvberg was born in Målselv, Troms, and made her professional début in Oslo in 1948. In the period 1952 to 1970 she lived in Stockholm, interrupted by a stay at the Vienna State Opera and the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.

Løvberg was a professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music and head of the Norwegian Opera. She was a Commander of the Order of St. Olav, and won a Gammleng prize in the veteran class in 2000. She was married to Børt-Erik Thoresen.

Løvberg lived her last years in Lillehammer, Oppland, where she died aged 89.
