A lovely little post from the Norwegian soprano:
I was in New York for the first time in 2009 visiting my best friend. Of course we wanted to see the opera, but we didn’t have enough money to go inside. As a good tourist, my friend took this photo of me pretending to sing in front of the opera.
I’m serious when I say that at that time, I had never in a million years thought I would sing inside. And now, 10 years later, I have my debut in under two weeks.. I find it all very exciting and very scary. Hard work led me here and I cross my fingers that hard work will help me for the opening and this debut too!
Lise makes her Met debut in The Queen of Spades on November 29.
