The New York Times said she “exuded an intangible electricity” as Tosca. Opera News has called her “a star in the making.” Soprano Lisa Daltirus brings her powerful voice to Opera in the Park on July 25, when she’ll sing selections from her signature role of Aida and also explore new territory with Senta’s Ballad from The Flying Dutchman. In recent seasons, Ms. Daltirus has sung the title roles of Aida and Tosca with companies across the US, in addition to portraying Cilla in Margaret Garner with New York City Opera; Leonora in Il Trovatore and Desdemona in Otello with Seattle Opera; and Bess in Porgy and Bess with the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Read more about Ms. Daltirus here in this Opera News feature, and watch the video below.
Fast-forward to 1:27 if you’re impatient, and also check out this preview of Ms. Daltirus as Tosca in Seattle last year.
