Lise Lindstrom nominated for Australian Helpmann Award

Having received the Green Room Award for her performance in Opera Australia’s Ring Cycle, Lise Lindstrom has been recognized again with a nomination for a Helpmann Award, an annual celebration of excellence in the performing arts.

The American soprano made her debut in the first full Ring Cycle at Opera Australia in fall 2016 following her acclaimed performance as the title role in Puccini’s Turandot the previous year.

Summer brings Beethoven, Puccini, and Strauss

Lise Lindstrom begins the summer in Prague, singing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Prague Symphony Orchestra at Smetana Hall. Pietari Inkinen leads the June 14 and 15 performances, which also feature mezzo-soprano Jana Hrochová, tenor Jaroslav Březina, baritone Jirí Brückler, and bass Pavel Svingr.

Rounding out the summer season, Lise sings Elektra in concert at the Verbier Festival under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen. Joining a stellar cast that includes Ingela Brimberg, Anna Larsson, Thomas Hampson, and Wolfgang Ablinger-Sperrhacke, Lise performs the title role in Strauss’s one-act drama.
