American dramatic soprano Lise Lindstrom 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, Lindstrom’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 Lindstrom performed Brünnhilde in her first-ever full Ring Cycle for Opera Australia in Melbourne for which she was awarded the Green Room Award and Helpmann Award. The critics went wild as “Lindstrom, a tremendous Brünnhilde throughout...ended the Ring in a blaze of glory literally and metaphorically”. A leading interpreter of Wagner’s heroines, Lindstrom 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.
