This spring, Lise Lindstrom makes her highly anticipated debut as die Färberin in Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten at Staatsoper Hamburg.

Following her engagement in Hamburg, Lise sings Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Houston Symphony Chorus under the baton of Pietari Inkinen.
