Die Frau ohne Schatten (Die Färberin) with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra

“Like Schuster, soprano Lise Lindstrom and baritone Michael Volle brought the benefit of having lived with their characters on the opera stage to their fully fledged portrayals of the Dyer Barak and his Wife. […] Lindstrom competed for our loyalty by summoning pathos and sympathy for her frustrated Wife. Her slender voice is enticingly warm in the middle and focused on top. You could easily believe, seeing her suffer so beautifully, why Barak remains besotted with his wife no matter how much she scolds him.”
