“Lead dramatic soprano Lise Lindstrom has a voice made for the role of Turandot. She commanded attention, riding clearly above even forte orchestral passages and easily filling the sold-out Civic Center’s 3000-seat auditorium… Lindstrom, Tanner and Blue all received enthusiastic responses when they appeared for curtain calls”

Broadway World

“Lise Lindstrom has been performing her signature title role in all of the world’s leading houses and it is easy to see why she is in demand. Ms. Lindstrom has all the stamina, range, and vocal quality required to succeed in this fiendishly difficult “sing.” Her searing upper range is steady and full without ever becoming acidic. Her low and middle ranges have a round, warm appeal that help humanize the icy princess to a certain degree. Lise is also a lovely presence on the stage, dramatically committed and exuding an unerring musicality.”

Opera Today

“American soprano Lise Lindstrom has performed the role all over the world, and twice before in San Diego. Her haughty imperiousness, her strong, supple voice and her wide emotional range were impressive.”

Times of San Diego

“Turandot is one of the most difficult roles in the dramatic soprano repertoire, but Lindstrom sings with clarity, nuance, theatrical fire and enough vocal power to easily fill the 3,000-seat Civic Theatre, which was sold out on opening night.”
