Broadway World

"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."


Christine Lyons is a critically acclaimed operatic soprano in the United States and Europe. Hailed a “true virtuosa” (Broadway World), she has been praised for her “power and poise” (Classical Voice America), for her “voice rich in nuances” (Pro Opera), her “solid coloratura and legato” (Opera News), and for delivering performances with “presence and dramatic conviction” (St. Louis Today).
