Praised as “especially moving” by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and as a “sparkling soprano” by the Broad Street Review, Christine Lyons is a dynamic soprano on the rise. This 2017-18 season, Ms. Lyons will be presented in recital by Vocal Arts DC at the Kennedy Center and by Denyce Graves at Wolf Trap. She will also sing the roles of Giulietta in I Capuleti e i Montecchi with Saltworks Opera, Adina in L’Elisir d’amore with ARE Opera, Micaëla in Carmen with Opera Ithaca, and in summer joins Teatro Nuovo to sing Amenaide in Tancredi rifatto.
Highlights of previous seasons include Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro at Lincoln Center, Konstanze in Mozart’s Die Entführung at Symphony Space, the title role in Massenet’s Manon at Carnegie Hall, Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Echo in Ariadne auf Naxos with Berkshire Opera Festival, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival, and Pamina in Die Zauberflöte at Sant’Anna dei Lombardi in Naples, Italy.
