The Met Live in Concert

Ray Burmiston | Decca Classics

On 29 August Lise will perform in recital for the The Metropolitan Opera part of their newly launched exclusive pay-per-view series featuring some of opera biggest stars singing in locations across Europe and the US. Performing together with her long-standing accompanist James Baillieu, the recital will be streamed live from Oslo’s Oscarshall, one of the Queen‘s palaces.

The programme  will feature both a selection of arias and songs that she is now renowned for, such as selections from Wagner’s Tannhäser, Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos and Scandinavian songs by Sibelius and Grieg but also arias and songs that will premiere on this occasion such as Puccini’s Sola Perduta Abandonata from Manon Lescaut and Britten’s Cabaret Songs.
