Praised as “especially moving” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and as a “sparkling soprano” by the Broad Street Review, Christine Lyons is a dynamic artist quickly establishing herself in the bel canto repertoire. Her most recent portrayal of Amenaide in Rossini’s Tancredi rifatto at Teatro Nuovo evoked praise from Bachtrak, describing her as “remarkable” and Gay City News, calling her performance a “revelation.”

This 2018-19 season, Ms. Lyons sings the title role in Norma with Winter Opera Saint Louis, Blanche in Dialogue des Carmelites with Saltworks Opera, and is presented in recital with Thomas Muraco by the Art Song Preservation Society of New York.

Other recent roles include Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Fiordiligi in Cosí fan tutte, Adina in L’Elisir d’amore, Giulietta in I Capuleti e i Montecchi, the title role in Suor Angelica, Mimí in La Bohème and concerts at the Kennedy Center, Wolf Trap, and Opera Naples. Radio audiences enjoyed her performance as the featured artist on WWFM Classical’s “Celebrating Our Musical Future.”
