Christine Lyons

SOPRANO

"Norma was Maria Callas' favorite showcase for her legendary voice. Renata Scotto once called the role of Norma 'the Everest of opera.' Well, Soprano Christine Lyons climbs that peak with banners flying. She's a true virtuosa, dazzling us with her mastery of all those Bel Canto coloratura fireworks- all the runs, trills and staccato arpeggios and cadenzas that decorate the long, free-ranging melody lines."
