Salome with San Diego Opera

“Much of the evening’s success rode gallantly on the alluring shoulders of the young American singer Lise Lindstrom, whose radiant dramatic soprano voice rose to every challenge Strauss tossed her way, and they were legion. She agilely conquered his volatile, wide-ranging vocal lines, maintaining a lustrous quality in her highest range, where the composer kept her much of the evening… she gave her emotional range and depth that made her intriguing to observe.… I will be surprised if she does not [become] the Salome of choice in the widest of opera circles during this decade.”
