LISE LINDSTROM RETURNS TO HAMBURG FOR RING CYCLE
“Lindstrom is glorious as Brünnhilde, headstrong and mercurial but also pensive and supple. There is a ringing, exalted aspect to her performance…winningly warm and penetrating.” Time Out
“Lise Lindstrom’s Brünnhilde, her first full Cycle in the role, should install her as one of the greats.” The Guardian
“…hers was a consummate performance as she ended the Ring in a blaze of glory literally and metaphorically.” Sydney Morning Herald
Lise returns to the Hamburg State Opera to sing her “glorious” Brünnhilde in Claus Guth’s production of Wagner’s epic Ring Cycle in performances conducted by Kent Nagano. Die Walkure opens on Sunday 11 November, followed by Siegfried and then Götterdämmerung.
Fresh from her success as Elektra at the Wiener Staatsoper last month (in performances conducted by Michael Boder), and having impressed the world over as Turandot, Lise is making a name for herself on the international Wagner circuit. Last season she impressed in Die Walkure in Hamburg (with Kent Nagano) having sung her first full Ring Cycle for Opera Australia with Pietari Inkinen in 2016, for which she was awarded the Green Room Award and Helpmann Award for Best Female Performer in an Opera. Last summer she recorded a solo Wagner disc with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrucken Kaisterslautern, before singing Strauss’s Four Last Songs in Saarbrucken and Prague. This season she also sings Frau ohne Schatten in Hamburg, Die Walküre in Naples, Götterdämmerung in Leipzig, and returns to Opera Australia as Salome.
