“As the “Ice Princess” she is riveting. She met with apparent ease the huge demands of “In questa reggia” depicting Turandot’s implacable ties to the historic tragedy which motivates her. In a powerhouse performance augmented by the towering costume and set high on a moving rostrum, Ms. Lindstrom held the audience in pin-drop silence as she sought to condemn her suitor. Her exceptional acting abilities dominated this act. She achieved great contrast in the second aria, “Figlio del cielo” as she resorted to emotional manipulation when her riddles had been answered. We saw developed in the short span of Act Two, a complex portrait of nightmarish complexity and irresistibility.”

“Lindstrom is in her element as the icy princess. She is a still, imperious figure staring down her nose throughout, but for the confused tenderness of Turandot’s capitulation – a creaky, patriarchal turn of events that the soprano somehow almost renders believable. Her voice grew in suppleness, strength and precision, soaring with increasing splendour through Act III, recalling her previous, triumphant appearances in Melbourne as Brünnhilde for Opera Australia’s 2016 Ring.”
