Lise Lindstrom wins Helpmann Award for Ring Cycle

Lise Lindstrom was awarded the Helpmann Award for Best Female Performer in an Opera for her role as Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle at Opera Australia. The American soprano sang her first full Ring Cycle in the November 2016 production and earned great acclaim, with the Sydney Morning Herald praising her “consummate performance,” closing the cycle in Götterdämmerung “in a blaze of glory literally and metaphorically.”

Lise made her Opera Australia debut in 2015 in Graeme Murphy’s production of Puccini’s Turandot.
