Lise begins the new year with a new role, making her role debut as Liza in Tchaikovsky’s The Queen of Spades at Oper Stuttgart from 6 January. The production is directed by Jossi Wieler and also marks Lise’s debut with the company. Lise stars opposite Eric Caves as penniless engineer Herman, whose love for Liza is matched only by his penury. When he hears that the old Countess, Liza’s aunt, knows a secret sequence of three cards that always wins, he puts everything on the line to get at her secret.

The Queen of Spades is conducted by Oksana Lyniv and runs until 25 January. Click here for more information and tickets.
