American soprano Lise Lindstrom made her debut with The Royal Opera in 2013, singing the title role in Turandot.
Lindstrom was born and raised in California and was introduced to music by her mother, a singer and music teacher. She studied at San Francisco State University and San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Lindstrom made an acclaimed debut with the Metropolitan Opera, New York, as Turandot with less than two hours' notice. She has gone on to perform the role around the world in more than thirty productions, including at La Scala, Milan, the Metropolitan Opera, New York, the Verona Arena, San Diego Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin and Opera Hong Kong.
Lindstrom's other roles include Salome, Tosca and Suor Angelica, Senta (Der fliegende Holländer), Elisabeth and Venus (Tannhäuser), Amelia (Un ballo in maschera), Ariadne (Ariadne auf Naxos) and Giulietta (Les Contes d'Hoffmann). Her concert repertory includes Verdi’s Requiem and Strauss's Vier letze Lieder.
