“LISE” The Movie: Available For Streaming

Operavision will be streaming the beautiful short film “LISE” to celebrate International Women’s Day 2024. It will be available on Friday March 8th, at 1900 CET (and afterwards for 6 months on demand). 

The movie, in which Lise sings arias from three of Richard Strauss’s leading ladies, was filmed in June 2021 by Einar Film, and was staged by film director Eivind Holmboe. 

The Norwegian Opera - who commissioned the film - describe it as “an exciting hybrid between concert and film - where we both get close to Lise Davidsen, the characters and the opera house.”


In the 40 minute film, Lise sings as The Marschallin from Der Rosenkavalier, a role she debuted at The Met in 2023, as Arabella, and as Ariadne, one of Lise’s signature roles, and one she has performed to great acclaim around the world. 


The songs included are:


‘Da geht er hin’, Der Rosenkavalier

‘Mein Elemer’, Arabella

‘Ein Schönes war’, Ariadne auf Naxos

‘Es gibt ein Reich’,  Ariadne auf Naxos

‘Die Zeit, die ist ein sonderbar Ding’, Der Rosenkavalier


The Norwegian opera says “The three women are in different phases of their lives, but all reflect on who they are, where they are going and what they have become: What became of the young girl I was? Asks the mature Marschallin, while the young Arabella wonders what or who she really longs for, and Ariadne longs to lose herself in order to find again what was lost”.
