Lise Lindstrom makes role debut in Die Frau ohne Schatten, sings Turandot at Royal Opera House
This spring, Lise Lindstrom makes her highly anticipated debut as die Färberin in Strauss’s Die Frau ohne Schatten at Staatsoper Hamburg. The American soprano has earned acclaim for her performances as two of Strauss’ title heroines, the Huffington Post praising her for “her powerful voice, tragic or soft when needed,” in Elektra, and the Daily Echo writing that her performance as Salome“ was a gripping piece of operatic acting switching smoothly between girlish petulance and unsettling calm.” Die Frau ohne Schatten opens April 16 with additional performances on April 23, 29, and May 4 and 7.
Following her engagement in Hamburg, Lise sings Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Prague Symphony Orchestra and Houston Symphony Chorus under the baton of Pietari Inkinen. Lise is joined by Jana Hrochová, Jaroslav Březina,Jiří Brückler and Pavel Švingr at Smetana Hall in Prague on June 14 and 16.
Opening the summer, Lise returns to the Royal Opera House to sing the title role in Puccini’s Turandot. Lise takes the stage on July 8, 11, 14, and 16 alongside Aleksandrs Antonenko as Calaf, Dinara Alieva as Liù and Michel de Souza as Timur. Dan Ettinger conducts the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and Royal Opera Chorus.
