Lise’s “silvery lyricism” shines in DSO debut

In her Detroit Symphony Orchestra debut, Lise Lindstrom sang two concert performances of Strauss’s Salome under the baton of Leonard Slatkin. In “the kind of spectacle that shouldn’t be missed,” the American soprano “married a silvery lyricism with the pure muscle needed to compete with the orchestra,” raved the Detroit Free Press, which continued to praise her performance of Strauss’s demented princess: “The long closing scene was a marvel as she ranged very high and very low, soaring above the orchestra and then singing sweetly and chillingly to the severed head of Jochanaan, the prophet whom Salome herself had condemned.”

Lise follows Salome with three performances of Turandot at the Wiener Staatsoper, the first of which will be broadcast live. Explore Lise’s full calendar.
