Soprano Christine Lyons, praised as a “revelation” by Gay City News, a “true virtuosa” by Broadway World, and “exquisite” by St. Louis Today, is quickly garnering attention for her portrayals of the bel canto heroines of Bellini, Rossini and Donizetti. In the 2018-19 season, Lyons made a role debut in the title role in Bellini’s Norma with Winter Opera Saint Louis, which is followed by a summer role debut in the title role in Bellini’s La Straniera with Teatro Nuovo at the Performing Arts Center at SUNY Purchase and at Lincoln Center. She joined The Kennedy Center for The Me I Want to Sing to perform excerpts of the title role in Puccini’s Tosca and Leonora in Verdi’s Il Trovatore. Concert performances included a return to Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate both with the Queens Symphony Orchestra and with the Spectrum Symphony of New York, and upcoming Rossini’s Stabat Mater with Teatro Nuovo in New York. An advocate of art song, Ms. Lyons presented a solo recital with the Art Song Preservation Society of New York and will join the Ravinia Festival’s Steans Music Institute as a Fellow in the fall.
