“Lise Lindstrom was an impressive Marie, incapable of love, and yet possessing the drive to escape this state — vocally convincing in all nuances.”


“Lise Lindstrom brings a capital reputation to her house debut as an intense singing-actress, with Turandot and Salome among her international conquests. Her Marie is equally credible, well meeting the vocal challenges and particular focus on the text involved, cold and resigned – and somehow beyond sympathy – with her fate already sealed. Another fine role in the soprano’s operatic stable.”

The Opera Critic

“Lindstrom’s magnificent vocal focus and expansive range cut through the orchestra, regardless of tessitura, while effectively portraying a self-destructive, harried, unhappy woman and a negligent mother.”
