Lise Lindström



American dramatic soprano Lise Lindström has dazzled the world with compelling performances that are “truly world-class”.

Her unique vocal power combined with her expansive range, extensive palette of vocal colours, and unrivalled stagecraft, makes her one of the most sought-after talents of her generation. In roles that range from Turandot to Senta, Elektra and Brünnhilde, Lindström’s distinguished career has taken her to the world’s leading opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and Teatro alla Scala.

In 2016 Lindström performed Brünnhilde in her first-ever full Ring Cycle for Opera Australia for which she was awarded the Green Room Award and Helpmann Award. The critics went wild as “Lindström, a tremendous Brunnhilde throughout…ended the Ring in a blaze of glory literally and metaphorically”. A leading interpreter of Wagner’s heroines, Lindström has also portrayed Senta in Der fliegende Holländer with San Francisco Opera, Polish National Opera and New Orleans Opera, both Elisabeth and Venus in Tannhäuser with Greek National Opera, and Brünnhilde in Die Walküre.

Projects in the current season include Färberin (Die Frau ohne Schatten) at the Oper Köln, Brünnhilde in the brandnew Ring-Cycle at the Opera Australia in Brisbane and Elektra at the Semperoper Dresden.
