This month sees Lise star as Brünnhilde in Götterdämmerung at Oper Leipzig. Ulf Schirmer directs this production which opens on 14 April and runs until 24 May.
A leading interpreter of Wagner’s heroines, Lindstrom performed the role of Brünnhilde at Opera Australia in 2016 to great acclaim:
“Lise Lindstrom too delves deeply into the conflicted side of Brünnhilde, charting the path from radiant awakening through the dawning realisation of the challenges of her new world in great detail. Vocally she’s ideal – secure and always exciting at the top, yet able to caress a line to bring out the character’s vulnerability… Thrilling.”
“Lise Lindstrom’s Brünnhilde, her first full Cycle in the role, should install her as one of the greats”
Lise performed the full Ring Cycle in Hamburg and she will star in Die Walküre in Naples in May 2019. She has plans to announce her first Isolde in the near future.
