Turandot with Opera Australia

“Out front in the title role is America soprano Lise Lindstrom, who brings a true dramatic soprano tone into play (she’ll be playing Brünhilde in Opera Australia’s Ring Cycle next year, and it’s clear from her performance in this role that she has a voice of Wagnerian proportions)…It’s also an impressive dramatic performance in a rather strangely written role — she almost overcomes the absurdity of her character’s third act transformation from ice queen to loving wife.”
