Lise performs in Salome with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra

On June 15, Lise sings the title role in a concert performance of Salome with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Lise’s performances as Salome have been praised by critics worldwide, with The Times proclaiming Lise to be “one of the finest living exponents of this fearsomely taxing role” and BachTrack highlighting her “impressive floaty top, solid technique, and steely, ringing high register.” The Opera Critic declared, “Lise Lindstrom is a Salome to be reckoned with… Not only has she the capacity to soar over the composer’s most intense orchestration with ease and beauty, but she manages to maintain seemingly endless stamina throughout – and includes a compellingly seductive dance for good measure.”

Conducted by Alexander Liebreich, the performance also features tenor Michael Weinius (Herodes), mezzosoprano Anna Lubańska (Herodias), baritone Shenyang (Jochanaan), and tenor Maximilian Schmitt (Narraboth).

One Amazing Night at San Diego Opera

Following her success in Turandot at San Diego Opera earlier this year, Lise Lindstrom returns to the San Diego stage for One Amazing Night on May 5. Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley joins for an evening of operatic favorites accompanied by the San Diego Symphony.

The American soprano has performed at San Diego Opera on many occasions, including performances in the title roles of Salome and Turandot, as well as at the Company’s 50th Anniversary Concert. The program features selections from operatic masterpieces, including Ariadne auf Naxos, Die Fliegende Holländer, Tosca, and Macbeth as well Broadway favorites My Fair Lady, Camelot, and Oklahoma.

Lise Performs at Wiener Staatsoper in Turandot

Following her recent success in Turandot at San Diego Opera, where she sang with “clarity, nuance, theatrical fire and enough vocal power to easily fill the 3,000-seat Civic Theatre” (San Diego Tribune), Lise Lindstrom travels to Vienna to perform the role at Wiener Staatsoper.

Lise is joined by Roberto Alagna (Calaf) and Aleksandra Kurzak (Liù), in this production by Marco Arturo Marelli. Conductor Frédéric Chaslin leads the Vienna State Opera Orchestra for four performances on April 10, 13, 17, and 20.

 

Lise Returns to San Diego Opera for Turandot

At the end of February, American soprano Lise Lindstrom returns to San Diego Opera, reprising her iconic Turandot. Critics have continually praised Lise’s portrayal of Puccini’s icy princess, highlighting her “immensely powerful voice” and “magnetic force” (The Independent). Following Lise’s performance of the role at the Metropolitan Opera, The New York Times wrote, “she was dramatically alluring and vocally impressive, winning enthusiastic ovations from the audience.… she sang with chilling power.”

Lise is joined by tenor Carl Tanner (Calàf), soprano Angel Joy Blue (Liù), and bass Brian Kontes (Timur) in this production directed by Keturah Stickann. Valerio Galli conducts.

Performances run February 24 & 27 and March 2 & 4.
